  • 1 Crumble the Knorr Chicken Stock cube into the oil to make a paste. Add half the lemon juice, and the zest and thyme leaves and mix well.
  • 2 Using your fingertips, rub the paste into the chicken.
  • 3 Place the chicken breasts on the BBQ or alternatively under a hot grill. Cook for approximately 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally until chicken is cooked through.
  • 4 To make the salad, add mayonnaise to the broad beans, peas and cooked couscous. Stir in the spring onions (reserving a few for decoration) and the mint and chives. (It is a fiddly job shelling the broad beans but well worth the effort to reveal their jewel green colour.)
  • 5 Place the salad on a serving plate. Slice the chicken breasts and arrange on top of the salad and drizzle with the remaining lemon juice. Finish by scattering over the remaining spring onions.
