Preparation method

  1. Rub the olive oil all over the chicken. Scatter over the lemon zest and season with the salt and black pepper.

  2. Steam the chicken for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through, then set aside to cool.

  3. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the shallot and chilli and fry for five minutes. Stir in the curry powder and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the tomato purée and cook for a further minute. Add the wine and continue to cook until the volume of the liquid has reduced by half.

  4. Stir in the jam and stock, continue to simmer until the volume of the liquid has reduced by half. Set aside to cool.

  5. Mix the mayonnaise and the crème fraiche in a bowl until well combined, then stir in the curry dressing. Fold in the mango, spring onions, lemon juice and coriander.

  6. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Fold this into the mayonnaise mixture. Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper and Tabasco to taste. Serve with a green salad, and dress with the toasted almond flakes.
