Here’s a lovely healthy, tasty recipe to try if you’re watching those calories.
6 oz plain low fat yoghurt
3/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 cup chopped crystalised ginger
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon salt
4 chicken breasts (skinned and boned)
1/2 cantaloupe melon chopped into thin strips
1 mango chopped into thin strips
1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves
In a bowl, whisk 1 tablespoon of lime juice and 1/4 teaspoon of grated lime peel with the yoghurt, curry powder, half the ginger, half the crushed red pepper and a little salt. Add the chicken to the marinade and leave to one side.
In a separate bowl, gently mix the melon, mango and cilantro leaves with the other half of the ginger plus 1 tablespoon of lime juice, a little of the lime peel and a pinch of salt. Lastly, add in the remaining half of the crushed red pepper.
Now remove the chicken from the marinade (discard the left over marinade) and cook on a flat griddle pan until cooked thoroughly. Remove and cut into thin slices.
To serve, place lettuce leaves onto 4 plates and top with the chicken and mango/melon mixture.
The great news is that each serving is only around 250 calories.
