  • 2 small chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp chipotle paste
  • ¼ red cabbage, shredded
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • a large handful coriander, chopped
  • 2 large tortilla wraps, wholemeal
  • 2 tbsp soured cream
  • 2 tbsp pickled jalapeños, chopped
  • Tabasco, to serve


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/ gas 6. Coat the chicken breasts in the chipotle paste, season and put onto a non-stick baking tray. Put into the oven for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through. Rest on the tray for 5 minutes, then slice and toss with any juices from the tray.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, mix the cabbage with the spring onion, season and add the lime juice. Massage with clean hands, then stir in the spinach and coriander.

  • STEP 3

    Lay a large sheet of foil on a chopping board with a tortilla on top and spread over the soured cream. A third of the way up the tortilla, lay a horizontal layer of half the chicken, put half of the slaw mix on top and finish with jalapeños and a splash of Tabasco, if you like. Fold each of the sides of the tortilla in, then use the foil to help you roll the tortilla round itself – squeezing to enclose, then seal the foil. Repeat with the remaining tortilla and ingredients. Cut each in half to serve.
