Ingredients to serve 1

  • ¼ x lemon – zest & juice
  • ½ tbsp x sunflower seeds
  • 1⁄16 x cabbage – slice very thinly
  • ¼ clove x garlic – peel, grate finely & chop
  • ¼ tsp x Dijon mustard
  • ½ stick x celery – slice thinly at an angle
  • ½ x fennel bulb – slice very thinly crossways
  • 3g x fresh mint – tear leaves
  • 1 x chicken breast
  • 1 x egg (from your pantry) – beat lightly
  • ¼ cup x Southern Fried Chicken Mix
  • salt & pepper (from your pantry)
  • olive oil (from your pantry)
  • cling wrap (from your pantry)
  • paper towels (from your pantry)


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 (½ tbsp for 1).

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 breast: Place the chicken breast 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.
