Fragrant chicken with easy guacamole

Fragrant chicken with easy guacamole

Sometimes something as simple as chicken and salad is all you want, but it doesn’t have to be boring!

Adding some spices to the chicken and pairing it with some home made guacamole is lovely.

Remember that spices doesn’t necessarily mean heat, just added flavour to bring out the best in the chicken.

Ingredients for 1 serving

267 g chicken breast
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric
6 g olive oil
95 g cherry tomatoes
46 g spring onion, finely chopped
10 g fresh coriander, chopped
0.5 chilli, sliced, seeds or no seeds up to you!
0.5 garlic clove, crushed
1 lime, juice only
80 g avocado
149 g iceberg lettuce
46 g reduced fat sour cream
salt and pepper


  • Put a medium frying pan onto a medium heat.
  • Add the smoked paprika, ground cumin, turmeric to a bowl along with the olive oil and a little salt.
  • Coat the chicken in the spice mix before adding to the frying pan and cover with a lid.
  • Remove the seeds from the tomatoes before finely chopping the remaining tomato.
  • Mash the avocado and then add the chopped spring onion, finely chopped tomato, crushed garlic, sliced chilli, the chopped coriander and a squeeze of lime.
  • Check the chicken and turn over.
  • Give the guacamole a good mix and set aside.
  • After around 10 minuted the chicken should be cooked, the chicken will be firm to the touch when ready.
  • When the chicken is cooked, remove it from the heat and allow it to rest for a few minutes while you plate up.
  • Tear the iceberg in half to make 2 shallow bowls.
  • Arrange the halves onto a plate and fill one half with the guacamole and place the chicken in the other half.
  • Add the reduced fat sour cream to the guacamole and give the chicken a quick squeeze of lime to finish.

Recipe Notes

  • Why not batch cook this recipe and have a portion ready for tomorrow too!
  • If your avocado isn’t quite ripe, place it in a fruit bowl with some bananas. It should be ready the following day!
  • Adding the lime juice will help to stop the guacamole discolouring if you don’t use it straight away.
