Instructions
  1. To a large bowl, add the chicken breasts/thighs. Add all ingredients except tomato paste, oil and sugar into the bowl. Rub well until the chicken pieces are well coated. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat a thick bottomed pan. Add oil to the pan. When the oil turns hot, place the spiced chicken pieces in the pan without crowding the pan. Sear the chicken on both sides and remove on to a plate. Continue to sear the rest of the chicken in batches. Allow the seared chicken to cool for 5 minutes. Then shred the chicken using a knife and fork.
  3. To the same pan, add the shredded chicken. Add the tomato puree/ketchup and sugar. Mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning. Cook for 2 minutes or until the flavours have melded. Switch off. Scoop into tortillas, tacos, in between bread or serve alongside rice. Enjoy!
