Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 75 minutes Serves: 5
- 1 free-range mango hoisin butterfly chicken (we love Waitoa)

- 1 capsicum, diced
- 1 handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped (we love Superb Herb)
- ½ chilli, finely diced
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 lemon, halved
- 1 tbsp avocado oil (we love Olivado)
- 250g sweet stem broccoli (we love The Fresh Grower)
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 190C.
- Place chicken on a lightly greased tray and bake for 75 minutes, turning occasionally.

- Rinse the broccoli stems, leaving a little water on them.
- Heat the griddle pan on high heat. Drizzle with avocado oil. Place the stem broccoli and halved lemons on the hot pan. Sprinkle with salt and ground pepper.
