  • chipotle paste
  • cumin seeds 2 tsp
  • lemon 1/2, juiced
  • olive oil
  • skinless chicken breasts 4
  • red onions 2, 1 1/2 cut into thin wedges, 1/2 finely chopped
  • flatbreads 4, small
  • fat-free yoghurt 4 tbsp
  • avocado 1, peeled and stoned
  • tomato 1, seeded and finely chopped
  • coriander a handful of leaves, 1/2 chopped
  • lime 1, 1/2 juiced, 1/2 wedged


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Mix 2 tbsp chipotle paste, the cumin seeds, lemon juice and 2 tsp oil and pour over the chicken breasts and red onion wedges in a bowl. Tip onto a shallow baking tray and roast for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked though and the onions are tender. Leave to rest.

  • Step 2

    Sprinkle a little water over the flatbreads and wrap them all together in foil. Heat in the oven for 5-10 minutes until soft and warmed through. Slice the chicken. Mix the yogurt with 2 tsp chipotle paste.

  • Step 3

    Mash the avocado in a bowl with a fork then stir in the tomato, chopped coriander and lime juice. Season well. Divide the avocado between the warmed flatbreads, then add the sliced chicken and red onion slices. Add a spoonful of the yogurt, a few coriander leaves and lime wedges to serve.
