Warm spiced chicken and mango salad with yoghurt dressing

This recipe is from the lovely Susan our nutritional cook. New season mangoes are appearing at the markets and in the produce aisle... so be very QUICK. This is a yummy combination and I can't wait to try it myself, the crispy greens, sweet mangoes and cumin chicken make a wonderful combination!

Warm spiced chicken and mango salad with yoghurt dressing

1-2 tsp ground cumin
2 chicken thighs
Mixed green leaves
Snow peas (we had heaps in the garden!)
1 cucumber, sliced
1 mango, slightly under ripe
Dry roasted cashew nuts, optional

Preheat oven 200 C. Rub chicken thighs with cumin, salt and pepper (could also add some chilli or cayenne pepper if not serving to kids). Cook chicken in the oven for 15-20 mins, or until cooked through. Slice while still warm.

Serve on a salad of mixed green leaves, raw or very slighly blanched snow peas, dry roasted cashews and sliced mango. Drizzle over yoghurt dressing.

Yoghurt dressing
1 cup natural yogurt, 1/4 cup mint leaves chopped, 1/4 cup coriander leaves chopped, 1 small clove garlic crushed, 1 tsp finely grated ginger, juice from half a lemon. Combine ingredients or blitz in a food processor. Season to taste. Also good with a 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper added or 1 tsp of honey.
