Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Chicken Taquitos With Feta & Avo

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Add the ground cumin, smoked paprika, dried chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar to a plate

Add a very generous pinch of salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up – this is your spice mix

2 Chicken Taquitos With Feta & Avo

Add the chicken thighs to the spice mix and turn them several times until the chicken is coated in all of the spices

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chicken and cook for 2 min on each side or until beginning to brown

3 Chicken Taquitos With Feta & Avo

Boil a kettle

Dissolve the tomato paste in 100ml [150ml] boiled water – this is your tomato stock

Once the chicken has browned, add the tomato stock to the pan and reduce the heat to medium

Cook, covered, for a further 8-9 min or until cooked through (no pink meat!), turning occasionally

4 Chicken Taquitos With Feta & Avo

Meanwhile, chop the coriander roughly, including the stalks (save some leaves for garnish!)

Add the chopped coriander to a pestle & mortar with 2 tsp [4 tsp] cold water and a pinch of salt

Grind to a paste then add the mayonnaise and stir it all together – this is your coriander mayo

5 Chicken Taquitos With Feta & Avo

Once the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!), shred it apart in the pan using two forks – this technique is known as 'pulling'

Divide the chicken and sauce evenly between the tortillas

Roll each tortilla up and arrange them into an oven-proof dish

Drizzle with olive oil and put the dish in the oven for 15 min or until beginning to crisp – these are your chicken taquitos

6 Chicken Taquitos With Feta & Avo

While the chicken taquitos are cooking, trim, then slice the spring onion[s] finely

Cut the avocado[es] in half lengthways and remove the stone[s] using a teaspoon

Scoop the avocado out of its skin using a spoon and dice finely

7 Chicken Taquitos With Feta & Avo

Add the diced avocado to a bowl with a generous drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt

Crumble the Greek feta cheese
