    New potatoes have thin, wispy skins and a crisp, waxy texture. They are young potatoes and…

  • juice 1 lime

    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½- 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 4 skinless chicken breasts, each halved across the middle to make 2 thin escalopes
  • small bunch coriander, leaves roughly chopped
  • lime wedges, optional, to serve



    The same shape, but smaller than…


  1. Bring to the boil a saucepan of water big enough to hold all the potatoes and corn. Cook the potatoes for 12 mins, adding the corn after 6 mins, until both are tender. Drain well.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the sliced red onion with the lime juice and half the oil in a large salad bowl. Mix the remaining oil with the garlic, paprika and some seasoning in a shallow bowl, then toss in the chicken until thoroughly coated.

  3. Heat a griddle pan, then griddle the chicken for 3 mins on each side until cooked through. Tip the potatoes into the bowl with the onions. Stand a corn cob on one end on a chopping board, then slice down the length, cutting off the kernels in strips. Mix into the potato salad with the coriander and seasoning, then serve alongside the smoky griddled chicken, with lime wedges, if using.

my partner and myself have just started doing weekly shops based around a prepared meal plan. it's saving us money and we're eating much more healthily as we're not using ready prepared sauces etc.. i found this recipe very simple and it was definitely full of flavour. the things i'd change would be the amount of lime..i would perhaps think about using half a lime rather than the whole one as i found the flavour quite intense and a little on the sour side..the chicken was lovely though and definitely something i'd do again considering how easy it was. :)

Really great recipe - was a hit with my boyfriend who can be quite fussy! I used tinned sweetcorn and added sum halved cherry tomatoes to the potato salad. I am making it again tonight!

Nice but the chicken was slightly bland, I think a pinch of chilli would work well next time! S

Very tasty and very simple. I think the chicken could do with a little more seasoning though, perhaps a touch more paprika?

Was very disappointed, it was extremely bland and my husband certainly does not want it again.

This is a very easy and tasty dish. I used tinned sweetcorn and didn't have any coriander. I would use more paprika and more garlic next time, but I thought I'd be careful on my first attempt!

A fab dish. Real easy and quick to make and really tasty. I loved the lime zing.

It was OK but relatively bland and nothing special. Would use more paprika next time. Was cooking for two so halved the quantities (but had a 350g bag of potatoes so used them all) and the portion size was tiny. No wonder it looks favourable on the nutritional info!

This was so easy & looked like a lot more effort went into it than actually did! However, I halved the ingrdients as there was just 2 of us and didn't think there was quite enough salad - so would bulk that out next time.
