Piri piri chicken grain salad

Ready-to-eat pouches of grains, rice and pulses make fabulous (and hearty) bases for salads. Or you can use dried – see tip below. Add chicken cooked with a smoky spice mix and a cooling yogurt dressing and you can whip up a healthy summertime feast in just over half an hour.
