MAKES 4-6 SERVINGS
400g chicken fillets
1 tsp ground cumin
4 tbsp lemon or lime juice
2 tbsp olive oil
- Trim the chicken fillets and cut into 1cm thick strips. Combine the cumin, lemon or lime juice and olive oil in a small bowl. Pour this over the chicken strips in a large bowl and stir to coat. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over a medium-high heat, lay the chicken slices out on a plate and season the top with salt and paprika. Sear the chicken strips in two batches, spacing them a little way apart, for a couple of minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and leave to cool.
