This recipe is especially recommended when, in addition to the side effects or selected symptoms, the texture of the food needs to be adapted due to mucositis, esophagitis or pain or difficulty swallowing.
Chicken and apple skewers (texture modified diet)
Ingredients (serves 1)
  • 100 g chicken breast
  • 1 Golden apple
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Mashed potato flakes
  • Milk (lactose-free in case of intolerance)
  • 1. In a bowl, mix the virgin olive oil, turmeric and cur-ry powders. Set aside some of the oil to plate the final dish.
  • 2. Cut the chicken into squares and add to the bowl. Mix until the chicken is covered in the sea-soned oil.
  • 3. Peel the apple and cut into similar squares the same size as the chicken.
  • 4. Cook the apple in the microwave for four minutes with some water. Drain and blend together with a small amount of the mashed potato flakes and some water.
  • 5. In a pan with some olive oil cook the marinated chicken at low heat. Add a dash of water and a tablespoon of potato flakes.
  • 6. Cook until thickened and blend with some milk until getting the desired texture. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 7. Serve alternating the two purées and decorate with the reserved curry oil.


In case of dysphagia, or if a finer texture is required, the two purees should be mixed together to incorporate the curry oil.

In case of diarrhoea, verify your tolerance to spices and substitute milk for stock or rice drink.
