Toast almonds

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add almonds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Transfer to a plate to cool.


While almonds cool, halve zucchini lengthwise, then cut into 1/2-inch half-moons. Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Zest, then juice half the lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges. Add half the lemon zest, 1 tsp lemon juice and 3 tbsp mayo (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.

Make topping and prep chicken

Finely chop almonds. Add almonds, Parmesan, Dijon, remaining lemon zest and remaining mayo to another small bowl. Season with pepper, then stir to combine. Pat chicken dry with paper towels on a separate cutting board. Carefully slice into the centre of each chicken breast, parallel to the cutting board, leaving 1/2-inch intact on the other end. Open up chicken like a book. Season with half the garlic salt and pepper.

Cook chicken

Heat the same pan (from step 1) over medium-high. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Sear until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Transfer to an unlined baking sheet. Spread Parmesan-almond topping onto chicken. Roast in the top of the oven until cooked through, 8-10 min.**

Cook veggies

While chicken roasts, heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then broccoli, zucchini and 2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with remaining garlic salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender-crisp, 5-6 min.

Finish and serve

Thinly slice chicken. Divide chicken and veggies between plates. Serve lemony mayo on the side for dipping.
