Used diced turkey thigh instead. Don't have a rack so just chucked them in the roasting dish, turned out a little soggy perhaps but very nice. Had with sweetcorn rice, mango chutney, and chilli sauce.

Absolute winner! Delicious, easy, pretty healthy (I used chicken breasts instead, cut into goujon sized pieces) and cheap. Def going on the regular list.

Simple, quick and tasty. Don't think I'll bother with the chilli powder next time - probably use finely chopped birdseye chilli instead. I mixed mango chutney with soured cream for a delicious dip / sauce.
