Ingredients
  • 3tbsp olive oil
  • 300g frozen chicken breast chunks
  • 1tbsp Schwartz Fajita Seasoning
  • 1tbsp lemon juice from concentrate, mixed with 2tsp water
  • 1 small red chilli (finely chopped) - optional
  • 3 Little Gem lettuces (washed and roughly torn)
  • 300g can Good & balanced Mexican Style Bean Mix (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 large ripe avocado (peeled, stoned and sliced)
  • 1 small red onion (finely sliced)
  • To Serve (optional)

Method
  • Put 1tbsp of the oil in a large nonstick pan over a medium heat. Add the chicken pieces and fry for 12-15 mins, until thoroughly cooked through. Add the Fajita seasoning 2 mins before the end, stirring to stop it catching.

  • To make the dressing, whisk the remaining oil in a small bowl with the lemon juice and chilli, if using. Set aside.

  • To build the salad, divide the lettuce between 4 plates and scatter over the beans, avocado and onion.

  • Top with the chicken and drizzle over the dressing. Serve straight away with coriander and lime wedges, if using.
