  • 1 roasted red pepper from a jar, sliced
  • a few sprigs coriander, chopped

Method

  1. Mix the chicken with the lime juice, chilli powder and garlic.

  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan then fry the chicken for a couple of mins – it will cook very quickly so keep an eye on it. Meanwhile, warm the wraps following the pack instructions or, if you have a gas hob, heat them over the flame to slightly char them. Do not let them dry out or they are difficult to roll.

  3. Squash half an avocado onto each wrap, add the peppers to the pan to warm them through then pile onto the wraps with the chicken, and sprinkle over the coriander. Roll up, cut in half and eat with your fingers.

This recipe was easy enough but pretty tasteless. Would not recommend

I added a bit of cheese and natural yoghurt - may not be quite as healthy but tasted great

A great dish, very easy to prepare and the simple flavours still do a good job of keeping the meal exciting. I would recommend this meal for lunches and small dinners. I used a lot more chilli (because I like it a bit hotter) and used a lot more avocado which helped combat the possibility of the dish being to dry.

As suggested below, I too tried out using wholemeal wraps which gives it a healthy edge!

Absolutely gorgeous I used chilli flakes instead of powder, added red onions and used wholemeal wraps

I have tried cooking healthy recipes in the past, but my family disliked them… and frankly, despite my best efforts they probably didn’t even come out right. But now I know how to fix all of that in just a moment… The book named "Family Friendly Fat Burning Meals" helped me to solve the problem. You may also get some help from here http://goo.gl/L1EI3j

I tried this is part of the 3 day cheap & healthy diet plan - to be fair I wasn't enthused, it didn't sound very exciting for lunch, a bit plain maybe, and I don't really like avocado (green/slimy/tasteless I don't get it ;) ..... but...... I REALLY enjoyed it! The only things I changed were I used a quarter of a lime, hot chilli powder and a chopped fresh pepper. It was delicious! A new way to get avocado into my diet, hurrah!

Absolutely delicious, dropped the coriander and added sour cream and chive dip! Did the job beautifully!
