Chicken or egg? Recipe or ingredient first? Sometimes I decide what to cook based on a recipe I've found, other times I decide what to cook based on a hankering I have for a particular ingredient.
This meal started with the later. I wandered into the pantry and decided I wanted to use freekah and that I wanted to pair it with chicken. Once I had decided on those ingredients I drew inspiration from One Plus One's beautiful freekeh salad recipe. I changed it up to suit my ingredients and preferred flavours.
I cooked it up prior to a gym session and when I came home I was very happy that I had a healthy and delicious meal ready to go in 5 minutes.
