Shopping list for 2 people
1 echalion shallot
1 garlic clove
1 red pepper
½ red chilli
1 bunch coriander
1 gem lettuce
280g diced chicken thigh (make this dish vegetarian by swapping for tofu or a chicken alternative)
1 tablespoon tomato puree
1 tablespoon curry powder
2 tablespoon mango chutney
4 soft shell tacos
Wash fruit, vegetables and herbs
Cooking tools you will need: fine grater (or garlic press), coarse grater, large frying pan and mixing bowl
Time to get cooking your healthy chicken wrap
1. Get prepped
Halve, peel and thinly slice the shallot. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Halve the pepper, discard the core and seeds. Thinly slice. Zest and halve the lemon. Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed and finely chop. Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all). Trim the root from the baby gem lettuce, halve lengthways, thinly slice widthways. Trim and coarsely grate the carrot (no need to peel).
2. Start cooking
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the diced chicken and sliced pepper to the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Stir-fry until the peppers have softened and the chicken is golden all over, 6-8 mins. Lower the heat slightly and add the shallot to the pan.
Important: Wash your hands after handling raw meat.
3. Add the flavour
Continue to stir-fry until the shallot is softened and chicken is cooked, 3-4 mins. Meanwhile, mix together the garlic, lemon zest, tomato puree, curry powder and half of the mango chutney in a small bowl.
Once the chicken is cooked, stir the mixture into the pan until well combined. When everything begins to char, cook for 1 more minute, then remove from the heat.
Important: the chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle!
4. Warm the tortillas
Pop the soft shell tacos on the middle shelf of your oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.
5. Salad time
Meanwhile, pop the carrot, lettuce, half the coriander and a pinch of chilli in a bowl
along with a squeeze of lemon and a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
6. Dish up
To assemble, lay out the soft shell tacos (2 per person) and spread the remaining mango chutney in the centre of each one. Share the salad between each wrap (you might have some left over). Add the mango chutney chicken on top. Sprinkle over some remaining chilli and coriander. Fold over one end to encase the base of the filling and roll up. Serve with any remaining salad on the side. Enjoy!
