Cajun Chicken Salad with Mango
The chicken is first coated with a spice crust and then pan fried or grilled.
YOU WILL NEED
- 4 chicken breast fillets
- 1½ T (22,5 ml) Ina Paarman's Cajun Spice

- mixed lettuce leaves
- 2 mangoes, sliced

Press the Cajun Spice into the chicken. Drizzle generously with oil on both sides. Cook on a pre-heated griddle pan until just done. Cool. Slice into thin strips across the grain.

When out of season, replace the mango with papino or melon.
