A really nice flavor to this dish. I did not really know what I was going to make the other day so looked in the pantry. I saw that there was a packet of Fajita mix. This was right up my alley and everything fell into place after that. its great for a cool or cold night with loads of taste and its sure not going to blow out the budget either! I served it with hot vegetables but it would be great with rice

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dust Chicken with the flour - I use a plastic bag to shake my chicken in - shake off excess flour and place to one side.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a skillet or frying pan and sear the chicken pieces, this will take a couple of goes, and place in a casserole dish.
  3. Sauté the onions and garlic in the remainder of the oil gently until it looks at least half cooked.
  4. Add the celery, tomatoes, capsicum stirring for a few minutes then put the fajita mix (half is usually 2 ounces - as too much makes it too hot) in with pepper and salt adding the chicken stock. Simmer for just a minute or two and spoon over the chicken,
  5. Cook in a moderate oven for about 1 1/2 hours, or in the microwave on simmer for 45 minutes - thicken before serving with the corn flour mixed with a little water into a thin paste.
  6. Serve either with hot vegetables or on a bed of rice.
