Ingredients

For the marinade

To serve

  • 6 medium tortillas
  • bag mixed salad
  • 230g tub fresh salsa

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and wrap 6 medium tortillas in foil.

  • STEP 2

    Mix 1 heaped tbsp smoked paprika, 1 tbsp ground coriander, a pinch of ground cumin, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 4 tbsp olive oil, the juice of 1 lime and 4-5 drops Tabasco together in a bowl with a big pinch each of salt and pepper.

  • STEP 3

    Stir 2 finely sliced chicken breasts, 1 finely sliced red onion, 1 sliced red pepper and 1 finely sliced red chilli, if using, into the marinade.

  • STEP 4

    Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot and add the chicken and marinade to the pan.

  • STEP 5

    Keep everything moving over a high heat for about 5 mins using tongs until you get a nice charred effect. If your griddle pan is small you may need to do this in two batches.

  • STEP 6

    To check the chicken is cooked, find the thickest part and tear in half – if any part is still raw cook until done.

  • STEP 7

    Put the tortillas in the oven to heat up and serve with the cooked chicken, a bag of mixed salad and one 230g tub of fresh salsa.
