Fajitas are a hugely fun dinner and I get asked for them all the time! These easy chicken fajitas are packed full of flavour and you can create your own delicious combo of toppings each time. Messy, yes. Delicious, definitely!

Not only do these chicken fajitas taste delicious, there is lots of hands-on, make-it-yourself fun to be had. I think that might be why they’re requested so often!

It’s Time for Chicken Fajitas!

The great thing about fajitas is that you can add whatever you have to hand – peppers, baby corn, mange tout, etc – and you could also swap out the chicken for beef or just lots of extra veggies. If you have some leftover pork roast or some beef or turkey you can change it up each time.

Method

  1. Heat some oil in the pan over a medium heat and saute the onion until softened. Add the garlic and chilli (if using) for a further minute, then add in the chicken strips.
  2. Season the chicken and add the spices, stir well.
  3. Once the chicken has browned, add the pepper strips and leave to cook for a further 5-8 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, get all your toppings ready for serving. Let everyone serve themselves, layering the chicken and toppings in the tortilla wraps, then wrap tightly and enjoy!
