  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Tip the chicken into a bowl, tearing any larger pieces into smaller ones. Stir in 2 tbsp BBQ sauce and the red onion.
  2. On a baking tray (about 20 x 30cm), layer up half the tortilla chips with spoonfuls of half the BBQ chicken and half the mozzarella. Top with the remaining tortilla chips, chicken and cheese, finishing with a layer of mozzarella.
  3. Bake for 10-15 mins until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the tortillas are crisp. Dollop over the soured cream or yogurt, drizzle over the remaining BBQ sauce and scatter with the spring onions and coriander to serve.
