Ingredients

  • 4 skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • 30g ginger, sliced
For the sauce
  • 250g mayonnaise

  • a pinch of cayenne pepper

Step by step

  1. Place the chicken breasts in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Add the coriander seeds, cinnamon stick, black peppercorns and sliced ginger. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked. Drain and leave to cool completely.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients, except the chopped coriander. Season to taste and add more lemon juice if needed.
