chicken fajitas (fa-hee-tas)
I'm going to try to start blogging recipes as I lovelovelove food. I always instagram (follow me here) what me and my boyfriend are cooking so it just makes sense to blog about what we're cooking too!
Let's start with something pretty easy and very yummy.
Pronounced (fa-hee-tas); a mexican dish consisting of tortilla wraps stuffed with a choice of meat, vegetables and spices.
Optional bits n bobs: cheese, although this is a must for me.
You will need:
- chicken breast fillets (6 fillets feeds 4)
- any other vegetables (I used cucumber, onions, baby tomatoes and sweetcorn)
- tortilla wraps
- cream fraiche
- grated cheese (and lots of it)
- some sort of mexican chilli sauce
- lemon juice
- 1/2 garlic clover
The most gruesome part of any meat based recipe. I use kitchen scissors to dice chicken breast fillets as it gets it over and done with quicker!
I put a tiny amount of oil in a wok pan to prevent the chicken from sticking and let it heat up. I then put in the chicken and cooked it until it was white and fully cooked through. I then let it simmer in the juices whilst I did the next step...
I pretty much threw every single item that was in the vegetable drawer in the fridge. Even cucumber. Weird, right? But it was surprisingly nice! I chose red and yellow peppers as I love colour. I could personally live without onions but my dad would have moaned so I chopped up half of one. Added to this was also two cans of sweetcorn and a chopped up few Marks and Spencer's baby tomatoes. Pushing the boat out, I know.
No idea how much this is but it's from ASDA's. Slightly cheating but I was hungry, ok?! I sprinkled the spice ontop of the chicken and let it sink it for a while before adding the whole jar of sauce. I also added some lemon juice (no idea why, was feeling spontaneous), some pepper and two cans of sweetcorn.
Cream fraiche makes a perfect base for the tortillas so they're not too dry to eat. Just spread around a teaspoon of it so the whole tortilla is filled, then add some of the chicken mixture onto one side, add some more pepper, sprinkle some cheese (lots) and wrap it up.
