tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Evenly stack the tortillas; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Roughly chop the lettuce. Halve the tomatoes. Quarter the squash lengthwise. If present, remove the pit, then thinly slice the squash crosswise. Quarter the lime. In a large bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, sliced squash, the juice of 2 lime wedges, and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; halve crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, whisk together the chile paste, honey (kneading the packet before opening), and 2 tablespoons of water.

Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 2 minutes. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, frequently spooning the glaze over the chicken, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the chicken is coated and cooked through. Turn off the heat.
