Spicy chicken pittas
Spread houmous evenly over 2 pitta breads. Top with shredded meat from 1 cooked chicken breast, 1 sliced tomato, 1 sliced, pickled jalapeno chilli and crumble over a little goat's cheese. Cook under a hot grill until the cheese is lightly browned and sprinkle with some rocket leaves, if you like, to serve.


  1. Whizz everything together in a blender until smooth – loosen with a little water if you like. If you don’t have a blender, mash smooth with a fork or masher. Will keep in fridge for up to 5 days.
