  • 2 tsps olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 450g chicken breasts, cut into small chunks
  • Tzatziki:
  • 250ml Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1/2 cucumber, seeded, finely grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsps chopped fresh dill
  • 150g mixed cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 200g kidney beans
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 8 taco shells or tortilla wraps
  • 1 lettuce, finely sliced
  • fresh coriander


Step 1

Mix the oil with the cumin in a bowl. Add the chicken pieces and rub the spiced oil all over. Season with pepper and a pinch of salt, then cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Heat a frying pan to medium high. Add some oil and fry the chicken until cooked through, about 10 minutes. When the chicken is cooked, remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 2

To make the tzatziki, whisk together the yoghurt, cucumber, garlic, lemon juice and dill. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

When ready to serve, lay the taco shells or tortilla wraps on a baking sheet and warm through for 2-3 minutes. Serve the chicken, taco shells, tzatziki, cherry tomatoes, peppers, black beans, onion, lettuce and coriander in separate bowls, so that everyone can build their own tacos.
