• 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp mild curry powder
  • 1 tsp tomato purée
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp sweet mango chutney
  • 4 tbsp natural yogurt
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise (if serving to mums-to be ensure this is made with pasteurised eggs)
  • a few handful of red grapes small fresh lettuce, washed to serve
  • 3 cooked chicken portions (eg, breast, thigh or leg)


  1. 1

    Heat the oil in a small saucepan. Add the onions and cook over a low heat for a few minutes until soft but not brown.

  2. 2

    Add the curry powder and fry for 2-3 minutes to help cook off the powdery taste.

  3. 3

    Add the tomato purée, lemon juice, mango chutney and 150ml water. Simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until reduced to a thick sauce.

  4. 4

    Pop into a mini blender or blend with a hand-held blender until really smooth. Spoon into a bowl and leave to go cold. Add the yogurt and mayonnaise and mix together. Spoon a little (just under a third) into a little bowl for the little ones.

  5. 5

    Add the adults’ chicken to the remaining dressing and mix. For adults, scatter lettuce and grapes on plates, top with the chicken and dressing mixture.


    Tip: for toddlers aged 18 months plus, serve pieces of chicken and some crunchy salad and grapes and then dollop a small spoonful of the dressing on the side, this way the toddler can always dip the chicken into the dressing if they're keen to try it.
