Instructions

The Meat

In a medium metal bowl pour in the oil and Soy Sauce. Add some honey and all the spices (curry powder, coriander, ginger, cayenne pepper, sea salt and black pepper). Mix with a balloon whisk and taste.
Stir in the chicken and rub it all over. If you have a little bit of time, you can cover the bowl and let it sit for some time. If not, continue.

Mold the meat into a small frying pan and roast it on high heat. Mix and let it nicely darken and bake through for about 3 minutes.

Next, stir in the shallot and let it soften for 2 more minutes. Done.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

The Salad

In a small mixing bowl put avocado and mango. Add a pinch of chili and sprinkle with some lemon.

Stir in the baked chicken and add some Feta.

In another small bowl place 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of mustard and honey. Mix well until you get a homogeneous dressing. Pour it over the salad. Mix.

Bake the tortillas in the oven for about 2 minutes, depending how soft/hard you want them to be. Take them out and place them onto serving plates.

Layer each tortilla with 1 tablespoon of yogurt or crème fraîche. Divide The Salad on top of it and close them as you wish. Serve with a glass of white wine.

Makes 3 serves.
