1 Heat the oil in a wide frying pan, then add the chicken, pepper and chopped onion. Cook for 7 minutes over a high heat until the chicken is browning and vegetables are becoming soft.
2 Stir in the coriander stems, plus the pibil paste, tomatoes and some seasoning. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, steep the sliced onion in the lime juice with a pinch of salt.
3 Stir the beans and most of the coriander leaves into the pan with 5 minutes to go. When ready, pull the chicken into big shreds using two forks. Scatter with the remaining coriander and the pickled onions before serving.
This is also a great recipe for using up leftover roast chicken. Make the sauce as above, adding the shredded chicken with
a few minutes of cooking to go.
