This is a fast way to make full-flavored and colorful chicken to tuck into warm tortillas. It's a great easy-going party entree and it's low-fat and low-cost as well. This is also good served on a bed of rice or in pita bread.
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6
- 4 medium Ontario Onions
- 2 small sweet peppers (preferably 1 red and 1 green)
- 4 skinned boneless Ontario chicken breasts (about 1 lb/500 g)
- 2 tsp (10 mL) ground cumin
- 1 tsp (5 mL) each of ground coriander and chili powder
- 1/4 tsp (1 mL) cayenne pepper
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
- 1 can (10 oz/284 mL) condensed chicken broth
- 1 lime (optional)
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) coarsley chopped fresh coriander or Italian parsley
- 8 large flour tortillas, warmed
- Salsa, chopped avocado and sour cream (optional)
Peel and cut onions into bite size strips by slicing in half through root end, then thinly slicing each half; separate into strips and set aside. Seed peppers and slice into julienne strips; set aside separately. Slice chicken into 1/3-inch (8 mm) wide strips. Blend together cumin, coriander, chili powder and cayenne; set aside.
In large, wide saucepan or deep frying pan, heat oil over high heat. Add onions and stir, gradually sprinkling with 2 tsp (10 mL) of blended seasonings; stir until evenly coated. Add chicken broth. Cook, uncovered, over high heat for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and broth is reduced to about 1/3 cup (75 mL). Using slotted spoon, remove onions to dish.
Immediately add chicken and pepper strips to broth remaining in pan; sprinkle with remaining seasonings. Cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until chicken is no longer pink and most of the liquid is reduced, about 2 minutes. Stir in onions just until hot. Squeeze lime juice over top (if using). Stir and turn on large heated platter. Sprinkle with coriander. Spoon chicken mixture onto center of warm tortilla. Top with salsa, chopped avocado and sour cream if desired. Fold tortilla over filling and enjoy!
