Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the griddle pan on high heat.
  2. Halve and deseed the pepper and cut it into thin strips.
  3. Peel, halve, and finely slice the onion.
  4. Slice the chicken lengthways into long strips roughly the same size as your pepper strips.
  5. Put the peppers, onion and chicken into a bowl with the paprika and cumin.
  6. Squeeze over the juice of half a lime, drizzle with some olive oil, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and mix well.
  7. Put to one side to marinate for 5 minutes or so while you make your salsa.
  8. Finely chop the chilli. Roughly chop the tomatoes and the coriander, stalks and all.
  9. Put the chilli and tomatoes into a second bowl with a good pinch of salt and pepper and the juice of 1 lime. Add some extra virgin olive oil, then stir in your chopped coriander.
  10. Use a pair of tongs to put all the pieces of pepper, onion, and chicken into your preheated pan to cook for 6-8 minutes, until the chicken is golden and cooked through.
  11. As the pan will be really hot, keep turning the pieces of chicken and vegetables over so they don't burn - you just want them to lightly chr grill to give you a lovely flavour.
  12. Warm the tortillas up in the microwave or a warm dry pan.
  13. Divide your warmed tortillas between the serving plates.
  14. Halve the remaining lime and squeeze the juice over the sizzling chicken mixture.
  15. Divide the chicken mixture beween the tortillas.
  16. Top with cheese, salsa, and sour cream.

It is amazing what a few choice ingredients can do to add flavor. These were cooked on the grill in a grill pan. The chicken was moist and well seasoned. Served with the salsa and Guacamole Rotel (Recipe #405930). I do have leftovers and if you add 4 additional tortillas this recipe will easily serve 4. Made for Aussie Swap.

I used to buy the dinner kit but after making this recipe I have not looked back.

5 stars all the way! I'll start by saying that I love chef Jamie Oliver and have never had any of his recipes steer me wrong. These fajitas are simple to make (although it took me longer than 20 min.) and have fantastic flavor. I loved the flavoring of paprika, cumin and lime mixed in with the chicken. The salsa was light and a perfect complement with a bit of spice/heat. I only used half a lime on the salsa and half of a small bunch of cilantro - it seemed like plenty. For the toppings: the guac., I just mashed up a ripe avocado and added a bit of lime juice and salt. All put together, these are fabulous and easy fajitas!
