Ingredients

  • 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • olive oil
  • 2 tsp sumac, plus a pinch
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 200g green beans, trimmed
  • ½ red onion, finely sliced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and shredded
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ½ small bunch dill, chopped
  • 2 tsp pomegranate molasses

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Rub the chicken breasts with 1 tsp oil and season. Mix 2 tsp sumac with the cumin and rub over the chicken. Put onto a baking sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.

  • STEP 2

    Make the dressing by whisking the ingredients together with 1 tsp oil and some seasoning. Blanch the green beans in boiling salted water for 2 minutes. Add the red onion to the boiling water for 5 seconds, then cool both in iced water. Drain and pat dry with kitchen paper.

  • STEP 3

    Toss most of the dressing with the blanched beans, onions and the carrot, and tip onto two plates or a platter. Slice the chicken breasts and add to the plates, spooning over the remaining dressing, and scatter with more dill and a pinch more sumac.
