STEP 01

Chilli-chicken-step-1

We'll start by making the salsa.  Slice the spring onions into small pieces, stopping just before the white bulb at the end.

STEP 02

Chilli-chicken-step-2

Now slice the tomatoes in half, then into small cubes.  Slice the cucumber into small cubes as well.  Add all these ingredients, including the sweetcorn into a small pot and mix together.  Leave in the fridge while you cook the chicken.

STEP 03

Chilli-chicken-step-3

Place the chicken breasts onto a clean plastic chopping board and slice into pieces about 2 centimetres thick.  Put these to one side and wash your hands

STEP 04

Chilli-chicken-step-4

Spread the flour over a plate or another chopping board, then sprinkle a generous amount of chilli powder over (how much depends on how hot you like it)

STEP 05

Grab a frying pan and heat a drop of the oil over a medium high heat

STEP 06

Chilli-chicken-step-6

While that's heating up, take a few pieces of the chicken and roll them in the flour, coating them in the flour and chilli powder.  Once the oil is hot, drop them into the frying pan and fry until the flour turns a golden brown colour.  Place to one side and continue cooking the rest of the chicken.

STEP 07

Chilli-chicken-step-7

Once all the chicken is cooked, spoon the yoghurt into a little dish and sprinkle in some garlic powder (you won't need too much as it will be quite strong.)  Heat the tortilla wraps according to the packet instructions

STEP 08

Chilli-chicken-step-8

Pour some olive oil (and a splash of balsamic vinegar if you're using any) in with the salsa and mix together.

STEP 09

Chilli-chicken-final-shot

Now place the chicken in the middle of a wrap, spoon on some salsa then top with the garlic yoghurt.  Roll up and eat.  Yum.
