Inspired by crispy Chinese pancakes, we've come up with a quick chicken version of the classic. You'll pile layers of sweet, sticky pulled hoisin chicken, shredded red gem lettuce and crisp cucumber into warm tortilla wraps for a moreishly flavoursome (and speedy!) meal. (Dairy-free: see our FAQs for details).

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a high heat
Once hot, add the chicken thighs to the pan with a pinch of salt and cook for 2 min on each side until golden
Once golden, reduce the heat to low, add a couple of splashes of water to the pan and cook, covered, for 10-12 min
Meanwhile, shred the red gem lettuce[s]
Slice the cucumber into discs
Slice each individual cucumber disc into matchsticks
Trim the spring onions and slice them lengthways until you have thin strips
Add the tortillas to a baking tray
Put them in the oven for 2-3 min or until they're warmed through
Meanwhile, once the chicken is cooked (no pink meat!), transfer it to a clean board and shred it apart, using two forks – this technique is known as 'pulling'
Return the chicken to the pan with the hoisin sauce and the soy sauce and cook for 2 min or until warmed through
Assemble the wraps by dividing the shredded red gem lettuce, spring onion, cucumber matchsticks and hoisin chicken between the warmed tortillas
Garnish with the toasted sesame seeds
