Plain fat free yogurt

150 gm

Curry powder

2 tsp(s)

Ground turmeric

½ tsp(s)

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast

4 oz

Fresh watercress

75 gm

Peppermint leaves

4 tbsp(s)


¼ cup(s)

Cherry tomatoes

16 cup(s)


4 medium


  1. Mix together the yogurt, curry paste and turmeric in a shallow dish (don’t use a metal one). Add the chicken breasts, turning them to coat in the mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or overnight for a more intense flavour).
  2. Preheat a medium-high grill. Arrange the chicken breasts on the grill rack and cook for 8-10 minutes on each side, basting occasionally with the marinade. Test that the chicken is done by inserting a sharp knife into the thickest part – the juices should run clear. If necessary, cook for a few more minutes. Cover with foil and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the salad by mixing together the watercress, pea shoots or lamb’s lettuce with the mint, cucumber and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Slice the chicken and serve with the salad and lemon wedges.
