Total Time

At work we often discuss what we have eaten and what we are going to eat (make). I jotted down this recipe while a colleague was describing it. Have made it many times and find it quick, easy and above all, tasty.

  1. Preheat a griddle pan.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the oil, cayenne pepper and paprika.
  3. Rub the oily spices over the chicken breasts.
  4. Place the breasts in the griddle pan and griddle for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through.
  5. While the chicken is cooking, boil the peas for 3 minutes or until soft.
  6. Drain.
  7. Place the peas, oil, garlic, chilli flakes and cumin in a food processor and blitz until smooth (or mash with a fork).

  9. Top with the spicy chicken and serve.

I used edamame rather than peas and really liked that portion of the recipe. The paprika on the grilled chicken seemed "raw" to me.
