Chicken Tinga is a spicy shredded chicken dish from Mexico. Ours is served over soft, warm tortillas with crunchy lettuce, chicken tinga, grated cheese and a tangy lime mayo. Leave your knives and forks in the drawer – this one's a little messy and perfect to eat with your hands. Definitely something to taco 'bout!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Chicken Tinga Tacos With Lime Mayo

Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C (fan)/ 350°F/ Gas 4

Boil a kettle

Add the chicken thighs to a bowl and sprinkle over the ground cumin, ground coriander and a large pinch of salt

Give everything a good mix up – this is your spiced chicken

2 Chicken Tinga Tacos With Lime Mayo

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

Once hot, add the spiced chicken and cook for 3-4 min on each side, or until it's browned

3 Chicken Tinga Tacos With Lime Mayo

Meanwhile, combine the chipotle paste and tomato paste – this is your tinga paste

4 Chicken Tinga Tacos With Lime Mayo

Trim, then slice the spring onions finely

Shred the red gem lettuce

Grate the cheddar cheese

5 Chicken Tinga Tacos With Lime Mayo

Add the tinga paste and the sliced spring onion to the pan

Add 150ml [300ml] boiled water and season with a pinch of salt

Cover with a lid and cook for 6-7 min or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)

6 Chicken Tinga Tacos With Lime Mayo

While the chicken is cooking, combine the mayonnaise, the juice of 1/2 [1] lime and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil – this is your lime mayo

7 Chicken Tinga Tacos With Lime Mayo

Add the tortilla wraps to a baking tray

Put them in the oven for 2 min or until they're warmed through

Once the chicken is cooked, transfer to a clean board and shred it with two forks – this technique is known as 'pulling'

Return the shredded chicken to the pan with the sauce and stir it all together – this is your chicken tinga
