Method

  1. Toss the chicken breasts with the curry powder and 1 tbsp of the oil. Heat a large non-stick pan and cook the chicken for 5-6 mins on each side until golden and cooked through, then cut into strips.

  2. Whisk together the remaining oil and mango chutney with a good squeeze of lemon juice. Then, in a large bowl, toss with the cucumber, watercress, chicken and most of the flaked almonds. Divide between two bowls, scatter with the rest of the almonds, and enjoy with some crusty bread on the side.

This was very pleasant. Used pine nuts instead of toasted almonds. I used a spicy mango chutney from lidl and it worked well.

Made the creamy version (as given in tip 2). Had curry paste instead of powder & wasn't sure if this would work but it was very good. Only had chicken breast strips so covered them in a bowl with the yogurt/curry paste mixture before cooking quickly. Mixed with a green leaf salad (no rocket!) Served with peshwari naan. Very tasty. Will make this regularly from now on.

Did this for tea tonight, the second one with yoghurt and potatoes.......MMMMMMMmmmmmmmmm! Absolutely delicious! The chicken is gorgeous warm. I think I'll use the marinade for chicken pieces served in different ways too, it's so good. My husband positively devoured it and asked if I can do it again for the BBQ we're planning for BH Monday, only two days away! The bonus is its such an easy recipe to make. Will DEFINITELY be doing it again :0)

This recipe is fantastic. I always make the creamy version and add a few roast toms and also use the watercress, spinach and rocket bags. Delicious!

Made the creamy version with new potatoes. Rather than using the chicken breasts from above we used leftovers from tandoori roast chicken recipe also on this site. Really tasty and substantial salad.

This is lovely! I used rocket instead of watercress and served with warm peshwari naan bread. A really light, tasty meal

This is amazing! Such an interesting and complex flavour, certainly livens up salad! We used a "posh" mango chutney, it had mustard seeds etc in, I think you need a better chutney as a cheap one would be too vinegary. I ate my mine with a bit of mayonnaise and it was fantastic! Can't wait to have it again!
