Chickpeas, canned, rinsed, drained

1 cup(s), (200g)

Orange juice

Instructions

  1. Boil, steam or microwave pumpkin until tender. Drain. Mash in a large bowl with tahini, chickpeas, juice and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, cut each chicken breast horizontally into 2 thin fillets. Place chicken, chilli sauce, sesame oil and syrup in a shallow dish and turn to coat. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 2–3 minutes each side or until cooked though. Transfer to a plate. Cover chicken with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.

Notes

TIP: Use pre-chopped pumpkin sold in packs in the produce section of some supermarkets. Use uncrumbed chicken schnitzels instead of breasts.
