  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp hot chilli powder
  • 1 red and 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and thinckly sliced
  • 1 red onion, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 8 flour tortillas, warmed
  • 1/2 a lettuce, shredded
  • 4 medium vine tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado, halved, stoned, peeled and sliced
  • limes, wedges for squeezing
  • 120 g Philadelphia soft cream cheese
  • 2 tsp cold water


1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Toss the chicken with the chilli powder and stir fry for 5-6 minutes until lightly browned and cooked through. Tip chicken onto a plate and set aside.

2. Add peppers and onion to the pan and stir fry until softened and lightly browned, adding the garlic for the last minute of cooking time. Then return the chicken to the pan and cook with the vegetables for 2-3 minutes until hot, stirring regularly.

3. Mix the Philly and water until it reaches a smooth, dropping consistency. To serve, put some lettuce and a couple of sliced tomatoes onto each tortilla. Top with cooked chicken and vegetables, then add some sliced avocado and a squeeze of lime. Finish with a couple of teaspoons of the Philadelphia sauce. Roll up and serve immediately.
