Chicken & Sage v Mango & Pomegranate
OK so this didnt quite turn out how I expected – individually these elements are great, and both the chicken and the salad work well with the dressing. The chicken and the salad however had a few issues with each other. I dont blame the chicken itself, or the prosciutto. It was the sage that was the culprit………prefering to spoil the party instead of letting the mango and pomegranate do their wondrous thing. If I had my time again sage would not be invited to this dish – I urge you to do the same.
