Gino's Tip

You will be slicing your leeks but to do so, firstly halve them lengthwise, then soak them in a bowl of water to remove any grit. Dry them on a paper towel and once dry slice them.

Step 1 - Garlic and Herb Chickpeas

Heat a large casserole pan over med-high heat, add a drizzling of olive oil then proceed to cook your onions for 4-5 minutes. Now add your chickpeas along with your chicken stock and a good few dashes of water. Add your peeled garlic and reduce your temperature to medium and cook for 12-15 minutes. Checking and stirring at regular intervals until nice and saucy. Stir through your chopped parsley once done, taste and season if need be with salt and pepper.

Step 2 - Braised Greens

Heat a large casserole pan over med-high heat, add a drizzling of olive oil and once your pan is warm add your chopped tenderstem broccoli and leeks. Cook for 4-5 minutes until your greens are tender then add your shredded baby spinach and butter. Continue to cook for 2-3 minutes until your baby spinach has wilted, taste and season with salt and pepper.

Step 3 - Charred Chicken

Season your chicken breasts with salt and pepper as well as your DailyDish Spice Mix. Heat a large frying pan over med-high heat and add a glug of olive oil. Once the oil is hot, fry the breasts for 2 minutes on each side until they've had 6-8 minutes cooking time in total. They should be nicely charred and cooked through. When done, remove your pan from the heat.
