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)
 Sour cream

Pre heat an oven to 180 c


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


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


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


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


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


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


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