Spiced Chicken Pitas with Mango Salsa
Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground chicken and minced red onion. Season with salt, spices and the plum sauce. Cook, stirring and breaking up the meat with the side of a spoon, until the chicken is fully cooked and most of the liquid has evaporated from the pan. Remove from heat and keep warm.
To make the salsa, finely mince the mango and the green onions and combine with fresh minced cilantro (coriander), lime juice and a pinch of salt. Taste and add more lime juice if it seems too sweet.
To serve, let diners assemble their own sandwiches by filling the halved pita with the chicken and salsa. Pita can be gently warmed in the oven or the microwave.
This recipe also works as an appetizer. Cut the pita into triangles and brush with olive oil and sea salt. Toast on a baking sheet in a 450°F / 230°C oven, flipping after 5 minutes, until crisped and slightly browned, 7 minutes total. Top each triangle with the chicken mixture and top with mango salsa and a small sprig of cilantro.
