A quick roast of feta and broccoli — alongside some chicken and almonds — brings out their strong, surprisingly complementary flavours.


Ingredients

  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill , or 1/2 tsp dried dillweed
  • 125-g block of feta , preferably light
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • olive oil
  • 1 bunch broccoli
  • 1/4 cup whole skin-on almonds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment or lightly oil. Finely grate peel from lemon into a bowl. Stir in dill and pinches of salt. Cut feta into thick wedges. Cut chicken breasts in half horizontally. Place feta and chicken on parchment. Lightly drizzle both with olive oil, then sprinkle with half the seasoning mix.
  • Roast in centre of preheated oven for 10 min. Meanwhile, cut broccoli into large florets. When chicken has roasted for 10 min, add broccoli and almonds. Sprinkle with remaining seasoning and stir. Continue roasting until chicken is cooked through, from 10 to 15 more min. Squeeze juice from lemon overtop.
