During this time we are all looking for easy to make meals that are healthy and nutritious. You have probably got most of these ingredients in your cupboard or fridge already…a great ‘leftovers’ meal. Full of crunch with a slightly sweet, spicy flavour.

Serves: 2 – 9 GLs per serving

Serve with pitta bread, oatcakes or a large mixed salad.

1 gem lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces
cold meat from 1/2 roast chicken, skin removed
1/2 medium eating apple, cubed
1 stick celery, chopped
1.5 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise
1.5 tbsp low-fat yoghurt
2 tsp mango chutney
1 tsp tomato puree
1 tsp paprika

1. Create a bed of lettuce on a large plate.
2. Mix together the mayonnaise, yoghurt, mango chutney, tomato puree and paprika.
3. Combine the sauce with the chicken, apple and celery.
4. Pile on top of the lettuce and serve on oatcakes or in pitta bread, with a few leftover boiled potatoes or, to reduce the GL count, with some steamed asparagus or sliced peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers.
