Method

Slice the chicken into strips and marinade in the spices. Heat a tsp coconut oil in a large wok or griddle pan over a medium heat. While the oil is heating, slice the onion and peppers.

When the pan is hot add chicken and stir so it doesn’t stick. Continue to stir regularly. Once the chicken is lightly browned add the onion and peppers. Stir regularly.

In the meantime mash two avocados in a bowl and add the lime juice, fresh coriander, spring onions, and fresh red chilli (remove the seeds if you don’t like it spicy). Mix together and season with salt.

In another bowl finely chop the cherry or piccolo tomatoes, add the spring onions, chilli (remove the seeds if you don’t like it hot), a handful of fresh coriander and the lime juice and mix together. Season with salt.

Make sure the chicken is cooked through and serve with some little gem lettuce, a dollop of soured cream, a small amount of grated cheese and a whole meal wrap (optional).

Enjoy!!
