Chicken fajitas are an easy and flavourful weeknight meal. A classic Mexican recipe, juicy chicken is seasoned, seared and cooked to perfection, then tossed with sauteed capsicum and onions. A squeeze of fresh lime adds a punch of flavour. Serve them with warm tortillas and toppings. You can’t beat this healthy family favourite recipe.
INGREDIENTS
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 capsicums, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lime
  • your favourite toppings such as: cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, lettuce, diced tomatoes

For the seasoning:

  • 1/2 tablespoon chilli powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Season the chicken. Generously sprinkle the fajita seasoning on both sides of the chicken and use your fingers to press it in.
  2. Cook the chicken. Heat a large frypan over medium heat and lightly coat it with a drizzle of olive oil or avocado oil. Sear the chicken breasts for about 7-8 minutes on each side. Then remove them from the pan and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing into strips.
  3. Saute the capsicum and onion. While the chicken is cooking, cut the capsicum and onions into thin slices. Then saute them in the same frypan over medium heat for a few minutes until caramelised. You’re essentially making fajita veggies.
  4. Mix together. Add the chicken back into the skillet, squeeze fresh lime juice on top and stir everything together.
  5. Wrap it up. Serve immediately with tortillas and extra toppings.
