Homemade Chicken Fajitas

Yields1 ServingPrep Time20 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time40 mins

Don't buy packet mix, additive-ladened fajita flavouring when making your own is simple, cheaper and much more tasty.

 4 skinless chicken breasts
 2 onions
 2 large red peppers
 7 large flour tortillas - depending on how many you want!
 1 tbsp olive oil or rapeseed oil
 1 tsp cayenne chilli powder (more or less to taste)
 1/2 tsp ground cumin (more or less to taste)
 Salsa
 Guacamole
 Sour cream
1

Pre heat an oven to 180 c

2

Wrap the tortillas in foil, sprinkling a little water on the top tortilla before wrapping

3

Put the tortilla parcel in the oven and cook for about 15 minutes

4

Whilst the tortillas are warming, mix the onion, pepper and chicken in a large bowl with the oil and spices

5

Heat a large frying pan on the hob and add the oil - it needs to be hot so the food sizzles when it goes in

6

Add the contents of the bowl into the pan and cook, turning frequently to avoid it burning, for about 8 minutes until it starts browning

7

Don't put too much in the pan at once so cook in batches, keeping the cooked batches warm, if there is too much - this helps them cook better

8

Serve up by putting some of the fajitas on a tortilla with the salsa, guacamole and sour cream to taste
