The seasoning and salsa here also work well with salmon fillets – just grill them for 5 minutes instead.


SERVES 2 – 30 minutes

– 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts.

– ½ tsp olive oil.

– 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning.


– 400g can pinto beans, drained and rinsed.

– 2 red peppers, deseeded and diced.

– 1 avocado, diced.

– 2 spring onions, sliced.

– 1 tbsp olive oil.

– juice 1 lemon.

– handful coriander leaves, chopped.


Step 1:
To make the salsa, tip the beans, peppers, avocado and spring onions into a bowl. Season, dress with the oil and lemon juice, and set aside.

Step 2:
Lay the chicken breasts on a board and bash a bit to flatten them out slightly. Put the flattened chicken in a dish, drizzle with the oil, then coat with the Cajun seasoning. Heat a griddle or frying pan and cook the chicken for 5 minutes on each side, until cooked all the way through. Stir the coriander through the salsa just before serving with the chicken.
