Notes

We are proud of ourselves for this one. The chorizo powers through and creates a full flavoured blast with every mouthful. The spices added to the breadcrumbs give them an extra kick, depending on how spicy you like your food adjust accordingly. 

We used Asda’s gluten free breadcrumbs. 

Our dip was made using mayo, chipotle paste and lemon juice. 

It is important to tenderise the chicken first, or it becomes dry during cooking.
