Chicken Tikka Rice Salad…

A simple dish that punches flavour. Can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for weekday lunches too.

You can replace the chicken with a vegetarian alternative or just simple roast vegetables in the tikka spice and skip the meat and meat replacements altogether.

**NOTE: just a quick note about the seasoning we use in this dish, we have used a spice kit available from SpiceNTice which have all the spices you need all included in one kit so we don’t need to rummage through the spice cupboard for lots of different ones. Their spice kits and rubs are all Slimming Club friendly (Slimming World, Weight Watchers, Calorie counting etc). For 10% off your order you can use our code HICKMAN10 at the checkout.
