Servings: 4 people

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp dried chilli crushed
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts, about 150g each

For the salad

  • 150 g spinach
  • A handful of fresh coriander
  • A handful of fresh mint
  • A handful of fresh parsley
  • 1/4 red onion roughly diced
  • 1 tsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 avocados

Instructions

  • Mix together all the spices, garlic and oil with a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Add the chicken breasts and turn them so they are covered with the marinade.
  • Set a ridged griddle/grill pan on a medium heat and leave to heat up.
  • Meanwhile, one at a time, place the breasts on one half of a large sheet of clingfilm, fold the clingfilm over so that the spices are sealed in and gently bash the breasts with a rolling pin to flatten them to about 1cm thick; remove the clingfilm. Place the breasts on the griddle pan and cook for 6 minutes on each side.
  • Make the salad whilst the chicken is cooking. Finely chop the spinach, coriander, mint, parsley and red onion and mix together with the oil in a large bowl. Peel the avocados and remove the stone, then dice the flesh. Add to the bowl and fold in gently. Season with salt and pepper.
  • For the salsa, combine all the ingredients in another bowl. Use your hands to mix, squeezing the tomatoes to create a chunky, juicy salsa.
  • Serve each chicken breast with a big helping of the spinach salad and the mango salsa.
