  1. Heat a splash of olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat.
  2. Add the chicken strips and season with sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper. Cook, stirring often, until no longer pink, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add the onion and season with sea salt (we’re going to season at every stage to ensure the dish is well-seasoned by the end). Cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, around 1 minute.
  5. Add the bell peppers and season with sea salt. Cook, stirring often, until tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes.
  6. Add the cumin, smoked paprika, paprika and chipotle chilli flakes and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
  7. Taste and adjust seasoning, to taste, then build your bowls and serve with your favourite sides and toppings.
