  • for the tortillas (makes 16)
  • 450g (1lb) plain flour
  • ½tsp salt
  • ½tsp baking powder
  • 65ml (2½fl oz) vegetable oil
  • 225ml (8fl oz) lukewarm water
  • for the filling
  • 4 free-range skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 4tbsp oil
  • 4tbsp Cajun seasoning (we like Bart Spices)
  • tomato and onion salsa, avocado, natural yogurt, to serve


  • Place the chicken, oil and seasoning in a bowl, toss well, cover and leave to marinate for 20 minutes or overnight.

  • To make the tortillas, place all ingredients in a food processor and whizz until combined. If too wet, add more flour; too dry, add more water. Tip out the dough, knead briefly on a floured surface to smooth then divide into 16 pieces and roll out to around 1mm thick.

  • Heat a frying pan until very hot and dry-fry the tortillas for about 40 seconds on each side, until bubbled. Cover with clingfilm. Add a splash of oil to the frying pan, season the chicken and fry for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until cooked through. Serve with the tortillas and accompaniments, and let everyone help themselves.
