1 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper

4 tbsp Mazola Corn Oil
2 tbsp lime juice
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 heads of romaine lettuce, stripped to leaves
A handful of mint, chopped
1 avocado, smashed
Salsa to serve – optional

Step 1

In a small bowl combine two tablespoons of the Mazola Corn Oil, with the lime juice, oregano, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, garlic, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon of black pepper. Add the chicken strips and toss to coat, before setting aside to marinate for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat one tablespoon of Mazola Corn Oil in a large frying pan over a medium to high heat. Add the onion and red pepper and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until tender and beginning to brown

Step 3

Remove from the heat and set aside for later

Step 4

In the same pan, preheat the remaining Mazola Corn Oil and add the chicken. Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once cooked through, return the pepper mixture to the pan, toss to combine and cook for another minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper

Step 5

Spoon the smashed avocado onto the lettuce leaves and add the chicken mixture on top. Sprinkle with the fresh mint and a spoonful of salsa and it’s ready to serve
