You know how it is, that overcrowded pantry that just won't seem to get empty! We keep buying in the supermarket, replenishing it and then checking again after a while and then most of it is out of date. Now my pantry is just as full as anyone else's. Through press packages that I receive and from suppliers that continue to replenish. Time for some “zero waste recipes” where we will mainly use our stock. If you don't have exactly the same ingredients for these tortilla containers with chicken in your cupboard, see what looks similar and make your own variation. It will undoubtedly be just as delicious as this recipe, and you will have emptied your cupboard a little further. The herbs are added of course my regular supplier Those pots are certainly used a lot here at home!

Somewhere we got the idea that food packaged in cans, cartons (such as beans, etc.) are unhealthier than fresh products, but that is certainly not the case. Just look carefully at the labels. It is often processed very quickly under steam, for example. And there are hardly any extra additions. Of course, there are also packages that are full of sugars, preservatives, E numbers and other junk, but that is up to you. Read what you buy before you throw it in your basket.

Here you will find the complete recipe with all the ingredients you need. I hope you have fun preparing the dish below.

  • 300 gram chicken breast - in cubes
  • 1 Red pepper - cut into pieces
  • 1 ui - XNUMX onion - shredded
  • 1 package lentils in spicy tomato sauce - (from Boon beans) *see notes below.
  • 4 el salsa
  • 4 el crème fraîche
  • 4 small tortillas
  • 100 gram cheddar cheese
  • 2 sprigs of fresh parsley - finely chopped
  • 1 el chicken seasoning
  • 2 el olive oil

Nice and easy: click on the logo of your favorite supermarket to add the ingredients.

And this is how you make it:

  • Season the chicken fillet cubes with the chicken herbs.
  • Cut the pepper and chop the onion and parsley.
  • Heat the frying pan with a dash of olive oil
  • Fry the onion until translucent and then add the pepper and the lentil mix. Add a little water and stir well. Let the mixture simmer for a while over a low heat.
  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
  • Add the chicken to the frying pan and let it cook. (make sure that most of the moisture has now evaporated so that you do not have a sauce that is too wet.)
  • Take the containers for the tortillas, place a tortilla in them and spoon the lentil-chicken mix into the tortillas. Sprinkle the cheddar on top and place in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and carefully remove the ramekins from the mould. Spoon a tablespoon of crème fraîche and salsa on top, and sprinkle with some fresh parsley.
  • Delicious bites!
So if you don't have a package of lentils in sauce, you probably have a different type of package with beans in sauce. You can use this for this. If you don't have that, you can just use canned beans and add some tomato sauce/passata.
