I rely on chicken too often for dinner, so I wanted to try a different lean meat. Turkey is a great option – it’s often cheaper than chicken breasts, cooks quickly and is low in fat.

Method
  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat and add the turkey steaks. Cook for 5 minutes, or until brown on both sides. Remove the steaks from the pan and set aside.
  2. Add the stock, tomatoes, paprika, lemon juice and zest to the pan and allow to simmer for about 2 minutes, until the sauce is reduced slightly.
  3. Stir through the chickpeas, spinach and most of the parsley, and simmer until the spinach is just wilted.
  4. Return the turkey to the pan and bring to the boil. Cook for 8 minutes or until the turkey is cooked through.
  5. Season with pepper and serve.
This would work well with chicken breasts or pork steaks too
