Preparing the mango chutney -- 15 minutes

PEEL the mango and slice it into small cubes. REMOVE the seeds from the red chilli peppers and finely slice them. PUT the small saucepan on low heat and pour in about 2 deciliters (~0.85 cups) of white wine vinegar.

Turn up the heat to medium-high and boil down for a minute or 5. ADD in the diced mango along with the finely sliced red chilli peppers. CLEAN a portion of the ginger and grate about 1 to 2 teaspoons into the small saucepan. 

EASON with salt. Turn down the heat and let simmer for another 5 minutes. If you don't like sour flavours that much, you can add 1/2 tablespoon of sugar or a nice squeeze of honey.

Taste the chutney before you do this since the mango is naturally sweet. You should let the mango chutney cool down to room temperature before serving.

Putting it all together -- 10 minutes

SLICE the chicken fillet in 2 or 3 equally thick slices, depending on the size of the chicken breast. RUB each chicken slice with olive oil. We used regular olive oil for this, but you can use butter instead if you prefer.

We like olive oil because it adds a little more freshness to the grilled chicken, plus it doesn't burn as fast as butter would in a grill pan. HEAT up the grill pan over high heat, then add in the 2 or 3 slices of chicken.

GRILL for a couple of minutes (don't move it), then turn each piece around and grill for another couple of minutes. REPEAT this step until the slices are nicely cooked.  They should have grill lines and the meat should be cooked through.

SLICE the chicken into small(er) strips so that you can eat them without using a knife and fork when they are on the naan bread. You can use store-bought naan bread for this, but we used home-made ones.

You can find the recipe for home-made naan bread at the end of this recipe. HEAT UP the naan bread in your oven, if they aren't ready to eat straight away. Now for the fun part: SPREAD half of the goat cheese on each naan bread.

DIVIDE a handful of rocket lettuce over the two naan bread, do the same for the chicken strips. FINISH by spreading as much mango chutney over each bread.

Enjoy your chicken mango goat cheese on naan bread lunch! We've mentioned we used home-made naan bread instead of store-bought ones, you can view the recipe for them by clicking on the image below:
