Make the cabbage slaw
Make the cabbage slaw

In a large bowl, combine the red cabbage and a good drizzle of olive oil. Squeeze over the juice from 1/2 of the lemon wedges and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside. TIP: Adding lemon juice to the cabbage helps it to soften.

Coat the chicken
Coat the chicken

Place the plain flour, the mild Mexican spice blend and the salt (use suggested amount) in a plastic bag and shake to combine. Add the chicken strips and shake again to coat the chicken in the spice. TIP: Shaking the chicken in a plastic bag helps it to coat evenly and prevents mess.

Cook the chicken

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken strips and cook, turning regularly, for 5-6 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
