Chipotle chicken

SERVES 4

This Mexican-inspired chicken dish is very flavoursome. It’s a sort of sweet but smoky barbecue flavour, which is a firm favourite with my son Kyle. And for me, a happy Kyle is a happy house.

YOU WILL NEED

1tbsp veg oil

1 onion, diced

3 garlic cloves, minced

200g frozen peppers

½tsp brown sugar

1tsp chipotle paste

400g tin chopped tomatoes

2 large chicken breasts

HOW TO DO IT

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion for 5 mins. Add the garlic and peppers, and cook for 3 mins more.

Stir in the sugar, chipotle paste and tomatoes, then add the chicken. Simmer for 20 mins.

Remove the chicken and shred with two forks. Add it back into the sauce and stir well. Serve with some rice.
