  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 large Coles RSPCA Approved Australian Chicken Breast Fillets

  • 1 lemon, extra, rind finely grated, juiced
  • 1 tbs drained baby capers
  • 1 tbs Dijon mustard

Method

STEP 1

Cook the pasta in a saucepan of boiling water following packet directions or until al dente, adding baby broccoli and peas in the last 2 mins of cooking. Drain, reserving ½ cup (125ml) cooking liquid.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Season the chicken. Cook the chicken for 5-6 mins each side or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Set aside for 5 mins to rest. Thinly slice.

STEP 3

While the chicken is resting, add the lemon slices to the frying pan. Cook for 1 min each side or until caramelised. Transfer lemon slices to a plate. Add the lemon rind, lemon juice, capers, mustard and cream to the pan. Bring to the boil. Season.

STEP 4

Add the dill to the cream mixture in the pan with the pasta mixture, reserved cooking liquid, lemon slices and chicken. Toss until well combined. Divide among serving bowls. Season to serve.
