Griddled chickenThis is a tasty light dish that is very low in calories and fat, yet surprisingly satisfying. The chicken is rich in protein, which helps promote a feeling of fullness and feeds back to the brain telling you to stop eating.

Constant dieting can mean your diet lacks nutrients, compromising your immune system; mangoes are extremely rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene, which will give your immunity a boost and help you feel more energised. For a more substantial meal, serve the chicken with a little basmati rice.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 4 skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Zest and juice of 2 limes
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1 large mango, diced
  • 1 small red onion, finely sliced
  • 200g sugar snap peas
  • 1 bag of rocket leaves
  • Handful of fresh coriander

Method

Mix the oil with the lime zest, half the juice, chilli and garlic.

Place the chicken breasts in a dish, coat thoroughly with the chilli mixture and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes (preferably overnight).

Place the mango pieces in a large bowl, add the remaining lime juice and red onion.

Cook the chicken on a hot griddle pan for 5 minutes each side.

Meanwhile, blanch the sugar snap peas for 1 minute in boiling water, drain, run under cold water and then add to the mango with the rocket and coriander.
Toss together, season and serve with the chicken.
