Spice up your lunchtime with this quick and easy recipe that’s perfect for sharing. Featuring sweet chilli infused beetroot teamed with creamy avocado, crunchy red onion and healthy wholemeal wraps, the whole family will keep coming back for more.
Serves: makes 4 wraps
Preparation time: 10 minutes
- 150g cooked chicken
- 180g sweet chilli Infused Beetroot
- ½ avocado
- ¼ red onion, finely sliced
- 4 wholemeal wraps
- A handful Fresh & Naked lambs lettuce
- Small bunch coriander leaves
- Sweet chilli sauce to taste
What to do:
Tear the chicken into pieces, slice the beetroot, slice the avocado and red onion. Put all the ingredients including the lettuce, coriander and sweet chilli sauce into separate bowls. Warm the wraps as per the pack instructions.
Take everything to the table and let everyone build their own wrap. To roll, fold the top and bottom in, then roll up from one side. With the seam downwards, slice diagonally across the middle. This way the filling will stay in the wrap as you eat.
Cook’s Tip 1: Sweet Chilli Infused Beetroot can be purchased from Tesco, M&S, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s, or choose a different flavour from the infused beetroot ready-to-eat range, which is available in major retailers and includes: Spicy Sweetfire Baby Beetroot (Tesco Finest), Sweet Chilli Rosebud Beetroot (M&S), Sweet & Spicy Chilli Beetroot (Waitrose), Juniperberry & Black Pepper Cocktail Beetroot (Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference), Sweetflame Beetroot (Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference), Pomegranate & Cumin Beetroot (Waitrose) and Honey & Ginger Beetroot (ASDA).

It also doubles up as a sweet yet earthy dip, perfect with breadsticks or crisps and can be used as a tasty dressing for salads too. RRP £1.25 for 200g.
French radish sandwich
An open-faced sandwich of butter, radishes and fresh herbs is a French countryside breakfast tradition. This recipe gives it a modern twist, and is a cheat’s delight, using Boursin topped with radishes instead. It’s also a great healthy lunchbox filler.
Drinks match by food and drink matching expert Fiona Beckett: “You might not think of cider as French but it’s hugely popular in Brittany, Normandy and down in the south-west of France near the Spanish border. The gentle sweetness of apple-flavoured drinks work perfectly with these soft garlicky cheese and crunchy radish sandwiches – the perfect picnic. If you’d prefer something soft, the French make lovely old-fashioned lemonades – perfect for all the family with this simple, delicious picnic sandwich. Lemon always plays well with herbs and garlic.”
- 3-4 radish or French breakfast radish
- 2 slices of seeded bread
- 1tbsp Boursin cheese
- Handful of lambs lettuce
What to do
Slice the radish into quarters. Spread one slice of bread with Boursin, lay the radish slices on top and add the lambs lettuce before sandwiching the second slice of bread on top.
