Lime Chicken Strips & Tomato Guacamole Cups

Serves: 2

Preparation time: 20 minutes, plus 1 hour marinating

Cooking time: 5 minutes
360g/12¾oz skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced
1 small garlic clove, crushed
¼ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
juice of ½ lime
1 handful of coriander leaves, chopped
1 tbsp soy sauce
½ tsp paprika
1 tsp stevia powder
8 little gem lettuce leaves

For the Guacamole:
½ avocado
¼ red onion, finely chopped
1 small garlic clove, crushed
8 cherry tomatoes, finely chopped
1½ tbsp natural yogurt
½ tsp cayenne pepper
freshly ground black pepper

1. Put the chicken in a non-metallic bowl with the garlic, the chilli, lime juice, coriander, soy sauce, paprika and stevia powder. Cover with cling film and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

2. Transfer the chicken mixture to a non-stick frying pan over a low heat and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally.

3. Meanwhile, to make the guacamole, peel and pit the avocado, then place the flesh in a bowl and mash with a fork. Mix in the onion, garlic, tomatoes and yogurt, then season to taste with cayenne and black pepper. Mix everything together well.

4. Divide the chicken mixture evenly among the lettuce leaves and top each one with a spoonful of the guacamole to serve.
