Serve up a bright, light plate of goodness with this easy Quinoa salad which is packed with protein from the chicken, and heart-friendly fats from the avocado.
Put the quinoa into the pan and add the same amount of water. Cover it with the lid and let it cook.
Put the cut chili, spinach, trimmed spring onions and coriander (reserving a few leaves) into the processor, tear in the top leafy half of the mint, then blitz until finely chopped.
On a large sheet of greaseproof paper, toss the chicken with sea salt, black pepper, the allspice, and paprika.
Fold over the paper, then bash and flatten the chicken to a thickness of 1.5cm with a rolling pin.
Put the flattened chicken into the frying pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, turning after 3 or 4 minutes, or until blackened and cooked through.
De-seed the peppers, cut each one into 8 strips and add to the frying pan, tossing regularly.
Peel and cut the mango into chunks.
Drain the quinoa and rinse under the cold tap, then drain well again and tip on to a serving board or platter.
Toss with the blitzed spinach mixture, squeeze over the lime juice, add the extra virgin olive oil, mix well and season to taste.
Sprinkle the mango chunks and cooked peppers over the quinoa.
Halve and destone the avocado, then use a teaspoon to scoop curls of it over the salad.
Slice up the chicken, toss the slices in any juice and add to the salad.
Crumble over the feta and scatter over the remaining coriander leaves.
Serve with dollops of yoghurt.
