Kicking Chicken Lickin’ Salad

Think of this as a spicier, healthier and generally more slamming Coronation Chicken.

It’s super quick to prepare and lasts a few days in the fridge, so is great for a packed lunch.

Now it’s time to get messy and pick off shreds of the soft roasted chicken. You can munch the odd piece, no one will know.

Quicker than roasting a sweetcorn cob, just tip your drained tinned sweetcorn into a non stick frying pan (no oil) and let them caramelise on a medium heat. Just set aside when done.

Spoon the yogurt and mayonnaise into a bowl and add the spices. Season with a little salt.

Slice up the Romaine lettuce and place onto your serving plate making a hollow.

In a big bowl add together all the ingredients holding back some of the toasted almonds and sweetcorn.

Spoon your Kicking chicken Lickin’ salad into the hollow and decorate with the remaining sweetcorn and almonds.
