The Barbecue chicken, mango sauce and melon salad we love


This is a recipe that we do each summer - several times☺️ - since I first read about it in a Swedish food magazine, think it was almost twenty years ago. We really love the combination of fresh fruit, spicy chicken and mango sauce and then the ease to make. The origin recipe is made by talented and lovely Swedish chef/baker Leila Lindholm, @leilalindholm.

Hope you will like it as much as we do.



Barbecue chicken, serves 4

2 garlic cloves

1 piece of fresh ginger (root)

3 tbsp. catchup

3 tbsp. Japanese soya

2 tbsp. honey

3 tbsp. sesame oil (we love, so we always ad extra)

1/2 kg chicken thigh cutlet

​Grate garlic and ginger finely and mix together with the other ingredients. Marinade the chicken approximately two hours in the sauce. Keep in the fridge.

Mango sauce

3 dl Turkish/Greek yoghurt

4 tbsp. mango chutney

Zest from one lemon

2 tbsp. olive oil

Fresh black pepper

Mix up all ingredients to the sauce



Melon salad with mint leaves

1 watermelon

1 papaya

2 avocados

1 cucumber

1 sheaf of mint

3 tbsp. olive oil

2 lime (only the juice)

Flaky sea salt

Fresh black pepper

Take away the core, and slice the cucumber into 1/2 moons. Mix salad ingrediens, use the watermelon shell as bowls and put the salad inside. Sprinkle with olive oil, salt and black pepper.

Put the chicken on the barbecue (or fry it in a pan) until it's ready (70°).    

Bon appetit!
