Spicy Seasoned Chicken

To make a batch of the seasoned chicken…

  • Get a large bowl that’s going to fit all the chicken in it.
  • Put 1 teaspoon of Tesco Cajun Seasoning, 1 teaspoon smoked paprika, 1 teaspoon oregano, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder in it and stir to combine.
  • Trim the excess fat off the chicken fillets. If they have skins, remove.
  • Lay each out flat and cut into equal sized strips for even cooking.
  • Add the cut chicken to the bowl with the seasoning and stir/ turn until all the chicken is coated and no seasoning is left on sides of the bowl.
  • If you have time, cover with cling film and leave for 30 mins before cooking. If not, it doesn’t matter.
  • Coat your non-stick frying or griddle pan with a smearing of cooking oil (eg rape seed). Put on the heat.
  • Add the chicken before the pan get’s too hot; this will stop it sticking.
  • Keeping it moving in the pan until sealed (this also stops it sticking).
  • Cook chicken through.

Tangy Tomato Salsa

  • Roughly dice 4 or 5 ripe tomatoes (must be sweet) and put in bowl.
  • Add a cap full of balsamic vinegar and squeeze of lemon (strain the pips out or you might break a tooth!).
  • Add a heaped teaspoon of coriander leaf.
  • Add just a pinch of star anise powder (it’s a bully and you only want a hint).
  • Stir/ turn until tomatoes coated.
