Print recipe


  • 8 Turk's free range chicken tenderloins
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped oregano leaves
  • 8 small soft tortillas
  • 8 tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 8 handfuls very finely shredded cabbage or iceberg lettuce
  • 4 handfuls baby spinach, baby silver beet leaves or baby beetroot leaves
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped flat leaf parsley leaves
  • chipotle sauce for drizzling


  1. Place the chicken tenderloins in a shallow ceramic or glass dish and drizzle over 1 tablespoon oil, lime juice, oregano and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover and leave to marinade for about 10 minutes.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Place in the chicken tenderloins and cook for 3-4 minutes, turning once. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
  3. Heat the soft tacos, preferably on a chargrill so you get those lovely dark grill lines plus the bonus of extra flavour.
  4. Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise over each soft taco and top with shredded cabbage, baby spinach and herbs. Place on a chicken tenderloin and drizzle with a little chipotle sauce.
