  • 1 roasted red pepper from a jar, sliced

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.

i used normal peppers that i fried with the chicken and used the juice of a whole lime... i couldn't find the chilli powder but had some schwarzkoff cajun seasoning so used that instead... would recommend and will be making again! i only say four stars because id like a bit more vegetables in the recipe itself.

Really good wraps got me through my night shift. I used sour cream as per recommendations bellow and used sun-dried tomatoes as a pepper alternative. mmmmm. Really tasty and really easy

I was about to make this but then I forgot about the avocado so I put in some chicken, red bell pepper, a jalapeño and to top it off.... Sweet chili sauce! It was absolutely delicious and I would recommend it to everybody.

Delicious! But needs to be rolled up fast and served warm - otherwise it doesn't taste as good.

Super delicious - I'm making it over and over again. The only downside - this needs to be done quickly, especially the wrapping part - they're not nearly as tasty when not hot. Also I use ground chilli flakes - instead of mild chilli powder. Coriander is a must here imo.

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
