  • Yields: 4 Servings
  • Total Time: 32 Minutes
  • Prep Time: 20 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 Minutes


  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon crushed dried chilli
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 4 (159 gram each) chicken breasts, boneless, skinless 

For the salad

  • 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil
  • 150g spinach, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, roughly diced
  • A handful fresh parsley
  • A handful fresh coriander
  • A handful fresh mint
  • 2 avocados, sliced 

For the mango salsa

  • 4 cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1 mango, diced
  • 1 fresh red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • A handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper 


Make the marinade: In a large bowl, mix together extra virgin olive oil, garlic, all spices, and salt. Add the chicken and turn until well coated with the marinade.

Heat a grill pan or griddle over medium heat.

In the meantime, working with one at a time, transfer the chicken breasts on side of a large cling film sheet and fold over to seal in the spices; with a rolling pin, gently bash the chicken until flatten to about 1 cm thick. Transfer the chicken breasts to a griddle pan and cook over medium heat for about 6 minutes per side or until cooked through.

Make the salad: In a large mixing bowl, mix rapeseed oil, spinach, red onion, parsley, mint, and coriander. Gently fold in avocado slices and season with sea salt and black pepper.

Make salsa: In a separate bowl, mix together all the salsa ingredients; with your hands, squeeze the tomatoes until a chunky, juicy salsa is formed.

Serve one chicken breast with a heaping of spinach salad, topped with mango salsa.
