Chicken Fajitas Recipe
Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: Mexican
  • 8 soft tortillas or wraps
  • 500g (1 lb) chicken breast, cut into strips
  • 1 large red capsicum (bell pepper), cut into strips
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour (or plain flour)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon chilli powder (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Handful of mint or coriander
  • Sour cream and tomato salsa, to serve
  1. Place cornflour, ground cumin, paprika and chilli powder into a mixing bowl and stir until combined.
  2. Add chicken strips to spice mixture and toss to coat the chicken.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large frypan over medium to high heat. Add chicken, turning chicken regularly until golden and cooked through, approximately 3 minutes. Remove chicken from the pan and keep warm.
  4. Turn heat on frypan down to medium and add second tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add garlic, onion and capsicum (bell pepper) to frypan, stirring occasionally, until onion is just translucent – approximately 5 minutes. (If you prefer more of a raw onion flavour and crunchier capsicum, reduce the cooking time).
  5. Place tortilla on a place. Top with capsicum and onion mix in the centre of the tortilla. Add chicken, a few mint or coriander leaves, tomato salsa and a dollop of sour cream.
  6. Wrap it up and get into it! (Or wrap them in foil without the sour cream – heat in a frypan for 2-3 minutes before serving on your next camping trip!)
