"Chicken Man” Mark Tully shows Matthew Hayden how to make this healthy recipe in episode three of his show 'Home Ground'. Why not try it yourself?
Add the pawpaw to a food processor until you have a smooth paste. Marinade the chicken in this for a few hours. This helps to tenderise the chicken and create flavour.
Toast wattle seeds for a few minutes in a pan. Grind seeds with a mortar and pestle.
Lightly pound lemon scented myrtle.
Add butter and olive oil to a pan on medium heat. Add chicken and fry until golden brown (roughly 12 minutes or six minutes each side).
Sprinkle wattle seeds on chicken and add leaves.
Pour in juice from half a freshly squeezed orange.
Season with salt.
Rest meat for three to five minutes.
Fry off a chopped clove of garlic and two handfuls of spinach in a hot pan.
Place chicken on spinach to serve and drizzle olive oil over the top to infuse the flavours together.
