So we may have nearly evacuated the apartment block cooking this one…

This dish comes with a smoke alarm warning, followed by a freezing cold apartment upon opening all ventilation outlets! But you get some really succulent chicken, and the chive dip brings it all together.

It’s a Hairy Dieters recipe that is fairly low in fat, and we made it slightly more healthy with sweet potato wedges rather than ordinary wedges. For the cajun spice mix, mix together 5 tsp of ground cumin, 4 tsp of smoked paprika, 2 tsp of dried thyme, 2 tsp of dried oregano, 2 tsp of coarsely ground black pepper, half a tsp of cayenne pepper and 1 tsp of flaked sea salt. Beat the chicken breasts until they are 1.5cm thick and dust each one with a teaspoon of the spice mix. Griddle the chicken breasts over a medium high heat for 2 minutes on each side – although we found it took slightly longer.

For the chive dip, simply mix low fat natural yoghurt with 2 tbsp of finely chopped chives. And that’s pretty much it! Served with salad and sweet potato wedges this was a quick, tasty and filling meal.
