Ingredients

  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • drizzle olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 large ripe mango
  • ½ cucumber
  • ½ small red onion
  • handful fresh coriander leaves
  • 4 tbsp soured cream or natural yogurt
  • grated zest and juice ½ lime
  • warm naan bread, to serve

Tip

Give it a twist
Try rubbing the chicken with a Cajun or fajita spice mix instead of the garam masala.

Method

  1. Heat a griddle or frying pan until hot. Rub the chicken with oil, garam masala and a good pinch of salt. Cook for 6 minutes on each side or until slightly charred and cooked through.

  2. Peel and slice the mango into slim wedges. Halve the cucumber lengthways and slice thickly at an angle. Thinly slice the onion. Toss the salad ingredients together with the coriander and pile onto plates.

  3. Mix the soured cream or yogurt with the lime zest and juice, season and dollop beside the salad. Cut the chicken in half or into thirds diagonally, arrange next to the salad and serve with naan bread.
