This is the last recipe I got to make from Jaime Oliver’s new cookbook before I had to take it back to the library. There were several more recipes that I had bookmarked, but I guess I will have to wait and see if I can check it back out again later. In the meantime, enjoy these scrumptious fajitas.
â€¢ 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut in thin strips
â€¢ 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
â€¢ 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast, sliced
â€¢ 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
â€¢ a small pinch of ground cumin
â€¢ 2 limes
â€¢ olive oil
â€¢ freshly ground black pepper
â€¢ 4-6 flour tortillas
â€¢ good-quality low-fat natural yogurt, salsa, guacamole, cheddar cheese
Add peppers, onions and chicken to a medium bowl with the paprika and cumin. Squeeze over the juice of one lime, drizzle over a lug of olive oil, season with a good pinch of pepper and mix well.
Let marinate for five-ten minutes. Preheat skillet/pan.
Use a pair of tongs to put all the pieces of pepper, onion and chicken into your preheated pan to cook for 6 to 8 minutes, until the chicken is golden and cooked through.
As the pan will be really hot, keep turning the pieces of chicken and vegetables over so they donâ€™t burn â€“ you just want them to lightly chargrill to give you a lovely flavor.
Warm your tortillas up in a microwave.
Divide your warmed tortillas between your serving plates.
Halve your remaining lime and squeeze the juices over the sizzling pan.
Serve with yogurt, salsa, cheese and guacamole.
Did I change anything? The original recipe came with another recipe for homemade salsa which I did not make.
What did the family think? The kids just ate the chicken parts with their tortillas, cheese and yogurt…no onions and peppers. Hubby and I really like it and I was so happy to find a fajita recipe that I like, that has taste and doesn’t require a packet of fajita seasoning.
