Spicy and smoky shredded chicken is a Mexico City street food staple. Here, we've paired our version with fragrant coriander rice, a refreshing corn salsa and a cooling lime mayo to make a flavour-packed plateful that will feel like a real fiesta to eat! (Gluten and dairy-free, suitable for coeliacs).

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Mexican Shredded Chicken & Corn Salsa

Add the basmati rice and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving, then boil a kettle

2 Mexican Shredded Chicken & Corn Salsa

Meanwhile, 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 breast[s] and sprinkle them with the ground cumin, ground coriander and a pinch of salt

Cook for 3-4 min on each side or until they've browned

 

3 Mexican Shredded Chicken & Corn Salsa

Once browned, add the chipotle paste and tomato paste and cook for 30 sec

Add 150ml [300ml] boiled water and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)

 

4 Mexican Shredded Chicken & Corn Salsa

Meanwhile, dice the tomato[es]

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed and chop finely

Chop the coriander (including the stalks)

Trim and chop the spring onion[s] finely

Cut the lime[s] in half

5 Mexican Shredded Chicken & Corn Salsa

Combine 1/2 [1] can of sweetcorn, the diced tomatoes, 3/4 of the chopped chilli (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!), chopped spring onion and 1/2 of the chopped coriander in a bowl

Squeeze over the juice of 1/2 [1] lime and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil

Season with salt and pepper – this is your corn salsa

6 Mexican Shredded Chicken & Corn Salsa

Combine the mayonnaise, the juice of the remaining 1/2 [1] lime and a drizzle of olive oil – this is your lime mayo

7 Mexican Shredded Chicken & Corn Salsa

Once the chicken is cooked through, shred it with two forks, tearing the meat up – this is known as 'pulling'

Season with a pinch of salt

Stir the remaining chopped coriander into the rice – this is your coriander rice
