Chef's tips:

Vary the vegetables according to the season.
The cooking should be done quickly and over high heat.
Deglaze with the lime juice while the pan is extremely hot to allow the chicken juices stuck to the bottom of the pan to flavor the dish.
Feel free to add some roasted seeds (such as sunflower) just before serving.
