  1. Marinate the chicken by mixing together the olive oil, cumin, crushed garlic, and salt and pepper and rub all over the chicken breasts. Set aside whilst you make the salad. The chicken can be marinated up to 24 hours ahead of time if you want to.
  2. For the salad, cook the wild rice according to the packet instructions - it should take between 30-40 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Drain really well and tip into a large bowl.
  3. Stir the spring onions, herbs and beetroot though the rice.
  4. Mix together the dressing ingredients and taste to check the seasoning. It may need a little more vinegar if the orange juice is particularly sweet. Stir the dressing through the salad. Set aside whilst you cook the chicken.
  5. Heat the oven top 180°C/gas 6. Heat a griddle pan until it's really hot and sear the chicken on both sides. Transfer to a baking sheet and finish cooking the chicken in the oven - depending on the thickness of the chicken it should take 10-15 minutes. You can also cook the chicken on a barbecue.
  6. When the chicken is cooked cut each breast into thick slices.
  7. To serve, pile the rice salad onto plates or a large serving platter and arrange the chicken on top. Spoon the yogurt on top and garnish with a scattering of the reserved dill fronds. Serve immediately. Please credit
