Marinate the chicken in lemon, salt, pepper and rosemary for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200ยฐC/400ยฐF. Chop the sweet potatoes into 2.5cm chunks. Toss with chili, coriander, cinnamon, a drizzle of olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Spread on a pan and bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp.


Meanwhile, cook the bulgur according to packet instructions. Slice the broccoli into small florets. Place into a colander and rest over the bulgur pan. Cover and steam for 3 minutes. Once cooked, drain, and rinse the bulgur under cold water, then side aside with the broccoli to cool. Remove the potato from the oven and set aside.


Toast the nuts in a dry frying pan over a medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, then crush lightly in a mortar. Halve the pomegranate and squeeze half into a large bowl. Add 3 times as much olive oil, the lime juice and vinegar. Add the broccoli to the dressing, roughly chop the coriander, slice the chili and add along with the bulgar and potato. Toss well, add the sliced avocado on top. Deseed the remaining pomegranate and scatter along with nuts and crumbled feta.


Finally, on medium heat panfry the marinated chicken breast, adding some lemon juice and soy sauce for flavor.
