  • Wrap the 6 medium tortillas in foil.
  • Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
  • In a glass bowl add 1 heap tbsp smoked paprika, pinch of ground cumin, 4 tbsp olive oil, juice of 1 lime, 1 tbsp ground coriander, and 2 crushed garlic cloves together with a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.
  • Skin the chicken breasts if required. Finely slice the breasts into strips and add to the marinade.
  • Finely sliced the red onion and the red chilli and slice the red pepper into strips.
  • Add to the marinade and mix thoroughly.
  • Place a griddle pan or frying pan over a high heat and heat until smoking hot.
  • Add the chicken and marinade to the pan.
  • Continue to move the pan contents around so they do not stick to the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes.
  • If needed cook in separate batches.
  • Place the foil wrapped tortillas into the warmed oven to heat up.
  • When the chicken is cooked through remove the contents into a warmed bowl.
  • Remove the tortillas from the oven and unwrap.
  • Fill each tortilla with the chicken, pepper and onion mixture and serve immediately.
  • I use a homemade salsa and guacamole for a finishing touch.
