Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Caribbean Chicken Tacos & Pineapple Salsa

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

Chop the coriander finely (including the stalks)

Shred the gem lettuce[s]

Combine the chopped pineapple, shallot, tomato and coriander in a bowl with a pinch of salt – this is your pineapple salsa

3 1459.

Combine the mayonnaise and reserved pineapple juice in a second bowl

Top with the shredded lettuce and set aside until later

Tip: Don't mix the lettuce and mayo together until serving! This stops it from going soggy

Slice the chicken breast[s] into thin strips

5 1459.

Add the ground coriander, ground allspice, smoked paprika and a generous pinch of salt and pepper to a plate

Mix all the spices together – this is your Caribbean seasoning

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

Once hot, add the chicken and cook for 8-9 min or until cooked through, turning occasionally

Once cooked through, remove the pan from the heat, add the soy sauce and give everything a good mix up

Meanwhile, add the tortillas to a baking tray

Put them in the oven for 2-3 min or until warmed through
