4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
½ tsp sunflower oil, for greasing
lime wedges to serve
CAJUN SPICE MIX
5 tsp ground cumin
4 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp dried rhyme
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp flaked sea salt
100g low-far natural yoghurt
2 tbsp finely chopped chives
If making your own potato wedges to go with this, you could use the spice mix, OR just some paprika, sea salt and black pepper.
Place each chicken breast between 2 sheets of cling film and beat with a rolling pin until the meat is about 1.5cm thick. You need to make the chicken breasts all the same thickness so they cook evenly.
Brush a griddle pan or non-stick frying pan with a little oil and place over a medium-high heat until hot. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the spice mix over each chicken breast to dust it lightly.
Griddle or pan-fry the chicken breasts for 2 minutes, then turn them over with tongs and cook on the other side for a further 2 minutes.
Finish by cooking the chicken for 1 more minute on each side or until cooked through. There should be no pink remaining. Put the chicken breasts on a plate and leave them to rest for 3-4 minutes.
To make the chive dip, mix the yoghurt and chives together. Spoon into small pots and put 1 on each plate. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over the chicken and a large mixed salad.
