The chicken brings other negatives with it besides carbon emissions. Chicken are often fed food largely made from Soya Beans and this is an issue – see our Food FAQ page. And where do the green beans and baby sweet corn come from – often flown in from Kenya or India this time of year.
With some small changes this recipe could easily move up to 8 out of 10 by substituting cauliflower for the chicken and other UK vegetables for the green beans and sweetcorn.
