Instructions

  1. Heat Flora pro-activ in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add chicken and cumin and cook for 3 minutes or until golden brown, turn and cook for a further 3-4 minutes or until cooked. Remove from the pan and cover loosely to rest.
  2. Add the onions to the pan and cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes. Add the stock, bring to the boil and cook until reduced by half. Return the chicken to the pan with any juices and heat.
  3. Make the salad by mixing the chickpeas, four bean mix, cucumber, capsicum and parsley in a mixing bowl. Stir in the parsley and avocado.
  4. Serve chicken and sauce over the salad with torn pita.
The Chickpea and Bean Salad makes a great filling for a pita pocket as a light lunch.
