Ingredients

  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast fillets
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried onion flakes
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 200g tub guacamole , to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Dry chicken with kitchen paper, then cut diagonal slashes over the smooth side. Mix spices with seasoning, then tip onto a plate.

  • STEP 2

    Brush the chicken on both sides with the oil, then coat all over with the spice mix. Heat a barbecue, griddle pan or grill, then cook the chicken for 5-6 mins on each side until cooked through. Serve each portion with a dollop of guacamole.

RECIPE TIPS
USING THE BBQ?

If you are cooking the chicken on the barbecue, corn on the cob goes really well with it. Brush the cobs lightly with oil (but don’t use seasoning as salt will toughen the corn), then cook for 5-7 mins, turning frequently, until lightly charred.
