    Serves: 4


    1 essential Waitrose red onion, finely sliced
    ½ tbsp maple syrup
    4 limes, zest of 2, juice of all, plus wedges to serve
    1kg essential Waitrose Britishchicken thigh fillets, trimmed of fat and sinew
    90g jar Waitrose Cooks’ Ingredients chipotle paste
    1 tbsp barbecue sauce
    2½ tbspessential Waitrose vegetable oil
    28g pack coriander, stalks finely chopped, leaves torn
    3 essential Waitrose large tortilla wraps, quartered
    50g essential Waitrose feta cheese, crumbled


    1. Preheat the grill to high, about 250˚C. Cover the red onion with boiling water for 15 seconds; drain well, then mix with the maple syrup, juice of 2 limes and a pinch of salt. Cover and chill.

    2. Season the chicken thighs and mix with the chipotle paste, barbecue sauce, zest and juice of 2 limes, ½ tbsp vegetable oil and the coriander stalks. Lay on a foil-lined baking tray and grill for 5-7 minutes on each side, until charred and cooked through.

    4. Slice the chicken and divide between the tortilla pieces. Top each with a little feta, the pickled red onion and a few coriander leaves. Serve with the lime wedges and a spoonful of salsa, if liked.
