Ingredients

  • 80g red camargue and wild rice
  • 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • ½ cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • a handful radishes, quartered
  • ½ red pepper, diced
  • ½ very ripe mango, diced
  • a bunch coriander, leaves torn
  • toasted sesame seeds, to serve

DRESSING

  • ½ mango, chopped
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the rice in a large pan of lightly salted water for 30 minutes or until tender. Drain well and cool.

  • STEP 2

    To make the dressing, put the mango and rice vinegar into a food processor with 2 tbsp of cold water, and whizz until smooth. It should be a drizzle-able consistency.

  • STEP 3

    Heat a griddle pan to very hot. Put the chicken breasts between two pieces of clingfilm and use a rolling pin to gently tap to an even 1cm thickness. Drizzle with vegetable oil and season generously.

  • STEP 4

    Griddle the chicken for 4-5 minutes per side until grill-marked and cooked through. Put onto a plate to rest for 2 minutes, then slice.

  • STEP 5

    Put the cucumber, radishes, red pepper, mango and ¾ of the coriander into a bowl, and toss with ½ of the dressing and the cool rice. Pile onto plates, and top with the remaining coriander, chicken and sesame seeds, and drizzle with the remaining dressing.
