Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Mexican Pulled Chicken Burger & Paprika Fries

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into fries

Add the fries to a baking tray with a drizzle of vegetable oil, a pinch of salt and the smoked paprika and give everything a good mix up

Put the tray in the oven for 25-30 min or until golden and crispy

Boil a kettle

2

Whilst the fries are cooking, add the ground cumin, dried oregano, chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and a generous pinch of salt and pepper to a plate

Gently stir it all together and add the chicken breasts

Turn the chicken several times until fully coated in all the spices

3

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

Once hot, add the chicken breasts and cook for 3 min on each side or until browned

4 Mexican Pulled Chicken Burger & Paprika Fries

While the chicken is cooking, dissolve the tomato paste in 200ml [350ml] boiled water – this is your tomato stock

Grate the cheddar cheese

Combine the mayonnaise and white wine vinegar in a small bowl and set aside for later – this is your zingy mayo

5

Once the chicken has browned, add the tomato stock and cook, covered, for 12-15 min or until cooked through (no pink meat!)

Tip: Flip the chicken occasionally to keep it moist!

6 Mexican Pulled Chicken Burger & Paprika Fries

Meanwhile, remove 4 [8] outer leaves from the little gem lettuce[s] (save these for your burger!) and shred the inner core

Dice the tomato[es]

Cut the ciabatta rolls in half and add them to a tray, cut-side up

Put the tray in the oven for 3-4 min or until warmed through and slightly crispy

7 Mexican Pulled Chicken Burger & Paprika Fries

Once the chicken is cooked, transfer to a clean board and shred it apart, using two forks – this technique is known as ‘pulling’

Return the shredded chicken to the pan, season with a pinch of salt and mix it all up until fully coated in the sauce

Return the pan to a medium heat, top the shredded chicken with the grated cheese and cook, covered, for 1 min further or until melted – this is your Mexican pulled chicken
