METHOD

Pasta Cover the pasta with boiling water and add the salt. Microwave for 10-12 minutes or until just done but still firm. Drain and toss with the remaining pasta ingredients. Set aside.

Chicken Season the chicken breasts with the lemon zest, oil, salt and pepper. Put the chicken in a microwave-proof glass dish and microwave for 10-15 minutes or until done, stirring every 5 minutes.

Dressing Whisk together all the ingredients. Pour over the chicken and mix well. For the lunchbox Allow the salad to cool. Spoon into small containers with lids. Pack into the lunchbox with an ice brick.

TIP Be planet-friendly and buy biodegradable disposable cutlery. At greenhome.co.za prices start at R34 for 50 forks or buy cheaper in bulk.
