Recipe: Leftover Chicken tacos – more of a method, really

This isn’t pretty, so no photos, but it is tasty.

The kids ate at the party they went to this morning, so I needed a quick lunch but wasn’t constrained by their campaign against taste.

If I had raw chicken I would have cut it into strips and cooked it first. Instead, I had leftover roast chicken so I shredded it. I fried some shallots (would have been onion if I had some, the cupboards are pretty bare) and garlic, when softened, I added the chicken and a drained tin of cannellini beans. I cooked these for about 5 minutes until the beans were hot through and then added a good size squeeze of thai chilli sauce and the juice of half a lemon. I left it to simmer for a minute, heated up some flour tortillas and made myself soft tacos, adding tomato salsa. I would have added avocado if there was any.

I love the sour bite the lemon adds.
