Method

 
Heat a pan on medium and add the olive oil. Add the chicken strips and fry on both sides till browned.

Add sweet chilli sauce and stir through the chicken until it’s cooked. Don’t overcook – chicken will dry out. Add salt to taste.

Mix all slaw ingredients together, or add to the pita as separate components.

Place pita breads in toaster, slice in half and stuff with chicken and beetroot slaw.

Squeeze lime juice over and serve.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
