Get Nourished recipe: BBQ chicken breast for your cravings

This week on Get Nourished, Zoe Bingley-Pullin takes barbecued bird to a whole new level with her BBQ cumin chicken breast. You’ll never cook chicken any other way again.

If you take a quick look into your fridge, there’s a high chance that you’ve already got some chicken breast at hand.

This lean meat lends itself to a variety of dishes and Zoe’s flavour-packed BBQ cumin chicken breast dish is sure to become one of your go-to easy weeknight dinners.

The fifteen-minute marinade is perfect for those busy nights when you need something on the table in minutes.

The sweet earthiness of the cumin packs a flavour punch that is enhanced by the subtle char from the griddle pan.

Paired with a zesty salsa that’s packed with tomatoes, onions, coriander and corn, this dish is a feast of flavours and colours for both the eyes and taste buds.

The contrast of sweet and sour in the honey lime dressing is the magic combo you never knew you needed. After all, opposites do attract.

Pop them together in a wrap et voila, dinner sorted.
