Finely chop garlic. In a small bowl, combine garlic, the soy sauce and the honey. Set aside. Slice chicken breast into 1cm-thick strips.


Thinly slice red onion (see ingredients). In a second small bowl, combine the vinegar and a good pinch of sugar and salt. Scrunch onion in your hands, then add to pickling liquid with just enough water to cover the onion. Stir to coat and set aside.

TIP: If you're not a fan of pickled onion, you can cook it in step 4 with the chicken!


Grate carrot. Roughly chop tomato. Shred salad leaves (see ingredients). Thinly slice fresh chilli (if using). Slice lime into wedges. In a medium bowl, combine carrot, tomato, salad leaves, chilli and a squeeze of lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Set aside.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over high heat. When oil is hot, cook chicken, in batches, tossing, until browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes. Remove pan from heat, then return all the chicken to the pan. Pour in honey-soy marinade and turn to coat.

TIP: Cook the onion with the chicken if you prefer!

TIP: Don't worry if the chicken chars a little – this adds flavour!


While the chicken is cooking, microwave mini flour tortillas on a plate for 10 second bursts, until warmed through. In a third small bowl, combine garlic aioli and a generous squeeze of lime juice.


Drain pickled onion. Spread some lime aioli over tortillas, then top with some salad, Korean-style chicken and pickled onion. Spoon any remaining honey-soy mixture over chicken. Sprinkle with crispy shallots. Serve with any remaining lime wedges.
