A good leftovers meal. Full of crunch with a slightly sweet, spicy flavour, it is perfect for packed lunches or picnics. Serve with pitta bread, oat cakes or a large mixed salad.

Serves 4


  • 1 little 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 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tbsp plain yoghurt
  • 2 tsp mango chutney
  • 1 tsp tomato purée
  • 1 tsp paprika


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