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 delicious. My husband has said we can definetly add this to our favourites. I didnt have any mango chutney, so I made my own version, I used 1 ripe mango, chopped into cubes, with a teaspoon of cumin, two tablesoons of sugar, a large knob of ginger finely chopped, a good squeeze of lemon juice and half a red chilli...and left it to reduce for a while on low heat...its was yummy, and went really well with the yoghurt. I made the creamy version of this dish.

Amazing meal, very taste and easy to prepare. Instead of using lemon juice, I added lime. Tasted just as great. Would recommend to anyone!

My sister and I really enjoyed this dish. I pan fried the chicken first to seal the flavour and then placed in the oven, it takes much longer than 12 mins to cook!! I added in some home grown cherry tomates, the sweetness worked really well, definitely be doing this dish again!!

Light healthy and fresh! Out of necessity i had to prepare it with fresh mango cubes instead of the chutney. (I didnt have any at home) - It worked well. Next time I'll try it with chutney.
