Method

  1. Heat a griddle on a medium heat, rub 1 tbsp oil all over the chicken, and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 25 mins, turning every 5 mins, until the skin is golden and the flesh juicy and cooked through. Lift onto a plate to rest.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. Brush the tortillas with 1 tbsp oil, then cut each into 6 triangles. Spread over a large baking sheet, then bake for 10 mins or until golden and crisp.
  3. Put the tomatoes and onion in a mixing bowl, then add a good pinch of salt and a grind of pepper. Add the remaining olive oil, chilli, Tabasco and the juice of 1 lime. Leave to one side.
  4. Peel and stone the avocados, then chop and mash lightly. Stir in the remaining lime juice and the tomato mix, then fold through the herbs.
  5. Slice the chicken and serve it with the corn chips, guacamole and more lime wedges for squeezing over. This great sharing dish goes well with a few cold beers and maybe some mayo.

Delicious and so easy to make. I didn't use Tabasco or parsley but you don't need it - you can make any variation of guacamole as you like! Love it!

Yum! It is a perfect summerdish. Nice indeed with a cold beer!!
Especially when you scrape the last bits of guacamole of your plate with the chips mmm This is so very much better then the 'glow in the dark'-green substance from the supermarket; and so easy to prepare!
