Chicken Fajitas Recipe!!!
You will need:
Cooking dish with lid or pan
500-1kg of chicken breast- I recommend seasoning the night before as this really helps with the flavour
I use fajita seasoning, garlic seasoning, chilli powder, salt and pepper
Onion x1 chopped or sliced (I always go for slices of onions for fajitas)
Salsa for topping
Supermarket Tomato Onion & Garlic sauce (you can make your own but for quickness I use out of a jar)
Pack of tortillas
Your fave veggies or salad to go on the side!
x1 teaspoon of Mr.Naga for extra flavour and spice
Step 1: Firstly grab your chicken out of the fridge and either put in a grill, the ninja or you can fry until brown. I always use the ninja because it keeps the chicken more succulent and prevents it from drying out. The ninja also helps the chicken stay warm while you are doing the other parts. Pop the chicken into the ninja for 15-17 mins on air fry or brown the chicken for a good 10-15 mins.
Step 2: Wait 10 minutes and then grab your pan or dish and spray fry light generously. Add in your onions and peppers and get them on a medium heat for 5-10 mins. Watch them closely otherwise they may burn a little. If you are using a pan already for the chicken just add it all in once the chicken is browned.
Step 3: Once that's done take the chicken out of the ninja and add this to the mix of onions and peppers. To maintain the heat try to use a lid over your dish! I always recommend using a cooking dish as it maintain heat so much better! Mix that up and leave for a few mins.
Step 4: Then you are going to add in your tomato sauce, I always use the whole thing but you can just use half of the jar if you don't like it too saucy! If you want to make things really spicy you can add a teaspoon of Mr.Naga at the same time you are adding the tomato sauce.
Step 5: Turn the heat right down and leave to simmer for at least 10-15 mins, this will give more flavour. Once this is done, at the last 5 mins remove the lid and allow the air to get in so the sauce can reduce down a little otherwise it will be too saucy and the wraps will just drip!
Step 6: Once that's all ready get your tortillas ready! Take all the tortillas out, if you are only making for 1-2 people you may want to use less. I do find with tortillas they are smaller, so if you want try to get wraps from the supermarket that aren't tortillas this will work just as good and you may be able to load them up more.
Step 7: To heat up your tortillas and preventing them from sticking together use a tiny bit of water on your fingers or hand, do this for each wrap as you place them on a plate before putting in the microwave. Get your salad and veggies ready and add these to your plate. They will only need about 20 seconds in the microwave!
Step 8: Once you are all ready I would recommend weighing out 150-175g of the fajita mixture and split this into two separate tortillas or wraps. Use a teaspoon of salsa along with a small handful of cheese and obviously pop some salad in there too! Enjoy!!!
