  • 4 large skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 heaped tbsp tandoori masala powder
  • bunch coriander , stalks chopped and leaves separated
  • zest and juice 1 lime
  • 150ml coconut milk
  • 2 heaped tbsp mango chutney
  • ½ cucumber , peeled lengthways into ribbons
  • 100g bag baby spinach leaves
  • 1 small red onion , thinly sliced into rings
  • 4 poppadums , broken into chunky pieces


  • STEP 1

Lay the chicken breasts in between a double layer of cling film and bash out using a rolling pin until about 1cm thick. Rub with the tandoori spice mix and some seasoning. With a griddle pan over a medium heat, cook the chicken for about 3-5 mins on each side until cooked through.

  • STEP 2

To make the dressing, mix together the coriander stalks, lime zest and juice, coconut milk and mango chutney until you have a pourable dressing – then season. Arrange the salad ingredients on a big platter. When the chicken is cooked, slice it and add to the salad. Then drizzle on some dressing, scatter with coriander and poppadum pieces and serve.
