Method

This chicken nacho sharing salad brings together sweet tomatoes and smoky rice, with lots of tasty flavours for a great summertime dinner.

  1. Begin by marinating the chicken. Mix the cumin, olive oil, garlic and seasoning with the zest and juice of 1 lime, mix with the chicken and leave to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Meannwhile, make a zesty yoghurt dressing. Mix the yoghurt with half the coriander, the remaining lime zest and seasoning to taste. In a separate bowl, mix up a speedy salsa with tomato for sweetness, the lime juice and remaining coriander.
  3. Place a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and fry the chicken (reserving its marinade) for 18-20 minutes, turning occasionally, until cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a plate, return the pan to the heat and pour in the marinade, cooking for 1 minute.
  4. With the pan still on the heat, add the Mexican rice for smokiness along with kidney beans for bulk. Stir well, cooking for 2 minutes.
  5. Slice the chicken breasts and tip any resting juices into the rice. Spread the lettuce leaves across a serving platter and top with the rice and beans, chicken and avocado. Spoon over salsa and yoghurt dressing, garnishing with crumbled tortilla chips for a touch of crunch .
