Nutrition: per serving low in kcal 353
· 1tbsp tamari
· 1tsp medium curry powder
· ¼tsp ground cumin
· 1 garlic clove, finely grated
· 1tsp clear honey
· 2 skinless chicken breast fillets (or use turkey breast)
· 1tbsp crunchy peanut butter (choose a sugar-free version with no palm oil, if possible)
· 1tbsp sweet chilli sauce
· 1tbsp lime juice
· sunflower oil, for wiping the pan
· 2 Little Gem lettuce hearts, cut into wedges
· ¼ cucumber, halved and sliced
· 1 banana shallot, halved and thinly sliced
· coriander, chopped
· seeds from ½ pomegranate
· STEP 1
Pour the tamari into a large dish and stir in the curry powder, cumin, garlic and honey. Mix well. Slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally to make 4 fillets in total, then add to the marinade and mix well to coat. Set aside in the fridge for at least 1 hr, or overnight, to allow the flavours to penetrate the chicken.
· STEP 2
Meanwhile, mix the peanut butter with the chilli sauce, lime juice, and 1 tbsp water to make a spoonable sauce. When ready to cook the chicken, wipe a large non-stick frying pan with a little oil. Add the chicken and cook, covered with a lid, for 5-6 mins on a medium heat, turning the fillets over for the last min, until cooked but still moist. Set aside, covered, to rest for a few mins.
· STEP 3
While the chicken rests, toss the lettuce wedges with the cucumber, shallot, coriander and pomegranate, and pile onto plates. Spoon over a little sauce. Slice the chicken, pile on top of the salad and spoon over the remaining sauce. Eat while the chicken is still warm.
