Method

Step 1

Preparation: Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Lemon: Using the fine side of a box grater, grate the peel to create zest. Then cut in half and juice.

Step 3

Sunflower seeds: Place a pan on high heat and dry toast for 2-3 minutes until browned. Toss often to make sure they don’t burn.

Step 4

Cabbage: Add a generous amount of salt to the shredded cabbage and massage with your fingers for 30 seconds to a minute to soften slightly.

Step 5

Dijon lemon dressing: Mix together the lemon zest and juice garlic and Dijon mustard, and whisk in the olive oil (2 tbsp for 4; 1 tbsp for 2).

Step 6

Cabbage salad: Mix together the cabbage, celery, fennel and mint. Add the Dijon lemon dressing and toasted sunflower seeds and mix through. Set aside.

Step 7

Chicken breasts: Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of cling wrap and bash with a rolling pin (or full wine bottle) to flatten (1½ cm). Season with salt and pepper. Dip the chicken in the eggs (shake off excess), then in the Southern Fried Chicken Mix (make sure to coat evenly). Place a pan on medium-high heat with enough olive oil to cover the base. When hot, add the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes a side until golden and cooked through. Remove, drain on paper towels and season.

Step 8

Serve the seed crusted chicken with the cabbage salad, on the side.
