4 Allow to stand for about five minutes. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan, add the chicken strips and cook for 5-8 minutes, turning occasionally or until cooked through.
5 For the Hot Salsa: Mix together the onion, pepper and chopped coriander. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan, add the onion mixture and cook gently for a few minutes to heat through. Mix together the yoghurt and chopped chives and serve with hot salsa.
6 Roughly chop the remaining chicken and place in a food processor. Add the egg white and 1 tbsp double cream and blitz, season.
7 Brush the egg yolk over the lasagne sheets, spoon some of the chicken mixture into the centre of each and roll up to enclose the filling.
8 Poach the rolls in a pan of boiling water for five minutes. Drain and serve on a plate.
9 Place the parsley, lemon zest and juice and garlic in a food processor, season and blitz until chopped. Pour the mixture into a pan, add the remaining cream and heat through.
10 Cook the broccoli florets in a pan of boiling salted water until just tender and drain. Serve the broccoli in a bowl and pour over the cream sauce.
