Fajitas are such a fun food to eat. In our house, we love them. You can mix and match them with whatever fillings you prefer, but these here are our favourites. It is just classic and simple. It is also a fun way to entertain as everyone can make their own.
Chicken Fajitas Dinner
Makes 10 / Prep time: 20 minutes / Cook time: 30 minutes
4 chicken breast, cut into strips
1 red pepper, finely sliced
1 onion, finely sliced
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
Juice of 2 lemons
1 tablespoon of cumin
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 chillies, finely chopped (optional)
½ of a head of iceberg lettuce, roughly torn
1 large tomato, chopped
1 cup of sour cream or Greek yoghurt
2 cups of shredded cheese of your choice, we like medium cheddar
10 Flour Tortillas
In a large bowl, combine the chicken with garlic, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, cumin, chillies (if using), salt and pepper. Stir to coat the chicken, then cover and refrigerate for several hours.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet add the other tablespoon of olive oil with the peppers and onions. Cook over high heat for a few minutes until they are slightly browned. Then reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook until they are quite soft. Remove from heat and set aside.
In another skillet, turn heat to high and add the chicken. Stir frequently and cook the chicken over high heat for about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat along with the peppers and onions. I like to serve the chicken on top of the peppers and onions as shown above. Serve with the Avocado dip, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, sour cream and Flour Tortillas. Enjoy!
