  • Dice the potatoes, finely chop the onions and add this to the mayonnaise with the coriander and season
  • When the chicken is cooked, rest for five minutes, slice thinly and present with the potato salad decorated with a little fresh coriander , sliced red chilli and chilli infused rapeseed oil
