Asian Yoghurt Chicken with Kale salad

IMG_5714This is such an easy mid week meal that we are forever making in our house. You can serve this chicken with any salad or veggies but I love this Kale and mint salad, It really compliments the spices in the chicken and is light and easy.

This is Toms favourite go to dish as its so easy to make and I can rattle off the recipe to him from my head we have made it so many time, apologies I didn’t think of sharing the recipe until now!

1/2 tsp chinese five spice powder

1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
1 small red onion
1 sweet corn cob
1/2 avocado
1/2 carrot
1/4 cup torn mint leaves

1 tbsp olive or avocado oil

How to

– Fry the chicken in a pan for 2 minutes either side
– Transfer to a baking tray and bake for 6-8 minutes or until cooked through
