What to do

  • 1. Fillet the chicken breasts into four servings. Pat dry with paper towel or clean cloth. Season with salt.

  • 2. Put the flour on one plate, the egg in a bowl and breadcrumbs on another plate. Coat the chicken with flour, coat with the beaten egg and roll in the breadcrumbs to coat completely.

  • 3. In a deep fryer or saucepan, heat enough oil that will allow the chicken to submerge. When hot, and fry the chicken fillets one or two at a time depending on the size of your fryer. Fry for 6–8 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on a wire rack.

  • 4. Heat tortillas in the oven for 1–2 minutes. Alternatively, heat a frypan and add the tortillas, one at a time. Cook for 1–2 minutes each side. Keep warm while you heat the rest of the tortillas.

  • 5. To serve, slice chicken breasts into thick strips and place on the hot tortillas. Add the lettuce and guacamole on top of the chicken.

  • Recipe extracted from Tacos by Ricardo Amare del Castillo, published by New Holland Publishers. RRP $39.99 available from all good bookstores.
