Marinating the chicken not only infuses it with flavour, it also helps retain the natural juices to prevent the flesh drying out as well as speeding up the cooking process. The quick and easy, creamy guacamole perfectly complements the smokey flavours of the marinated chicken, balanced by the sweetness of lightly caramelised capsicum.

You Plate It:

Heat tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds. Divide chicken and veg filling evenly between tortillas and top with guacamole and sour cream. Roll each tortilla up, enclosing the filling and enjoy!
