Lime chicken tortilla wraps

    45 min

    This Mexican-inspired dish is easy to make and a fab change of pace. Chicken is sauteed with vinegar, lime juice, spring onion, garlic and oregano for loads of flavour, then served in flour tortillas with tomato, lettuce, grated Cheddar and tomato salsa.

    1. Sauté chicken in a medium saucepan over medium high heat for about 20 minutes. Add vinegar, lime juice, sugar, salt, pepper, spring onion, garlic and oregano. Simmer for 10 minutes.
    2. Heat a heavy frying pan over medium heat. Place a tortilla in the pan, warm, and turn over to heat the other side. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Serve lime chicken mixture in warm tortillas topped with tomato, lettuce, cheese and salsa.


    Instead of warming the tortillas one-by-one on the hob, wrap them in aluminium foil and place them in the oven on medium heat to warm up whilst you prepare the chicken.

    I added some fried peppers and onions as I only had a small amount of chicken and mashed up some avocado to add to the filling. Was really tasty and makes a great spring/summer dish, together with some sour cream  -  04 May 2013

    It cooked up well, followed the recipe the first time around, I found it lacking in flavour, on the second try I added the juice and zest of 2 limes, some finely chopped ginger and some peppers - winner 😊  -  16 Jan 2016
