Ingredients (serves 4)
• 4 (about 250g each) single chicken breast fillets, skin on
• 2 tbs vegetable oil
• 2 tsp salt
• 1 tsp garlic powder
• 1 tsp onion powder
• 1 tsp dried oregano
• 1 tsp dried thyme
• 1 tsp sweet paprika
• 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
• 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
• Mixed salad leaves, to serve

Mango Salsa
• 1 ripe mango
• 1 avocado, halved, stone removed, peeled, finely chopped
• 1 red capsicum, halved, deseeded, finely chopped
• 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
• 1 tbs fresh lime juice
• 1 tbs finely shredded fresh mint
• Salt & freshly ground black pepper

1. Use a knife to score thickest part of each chicken breast, skin-side up, at 2cm intervals. Combine oil, salt, garlic and onion powders, oregano, thyme, paprika, cayenne and black pepper in a large bowl. Add chicken and turn to coat.
2. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Cook chicken, skin-side down first, for 5 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil and set aside.
3. Meanwhile, to make salsa, cut mango cheeks close to seed and peel away skin. Finely chop. Combine in a bowl with avocado, capsicum, onion, lime juice and mint. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chicken with salsa and salad leaves.
