How to make Chicken Fajitas

Ingredients to serve 6 people

2 boneless chicken breasts
2 Limes
1.2 tbsp of caster sugar
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp of cinnamon powder
2 onions
1 red pepper
1 orange pepper
1 green pepper
3 tbsp of vegetable oil
Salt & Pepper

Step 1:

You need to prepare the vegetables. De-seed and thinly cut all three peppers. Then slice the onions thinly. And place them onto a plate.

Step 2:

Slice the chicken breasts into thin strips.

Step 3:

In a bowl grate the skin of one of the limes. Then squeeze out the juice of both of them (works well if you use a fork). Into this add the caster sugar, the oregano, the cayenne pepper, the cinnamon and salt & pepper. Mixing them well.

Step 4:

Add the chicken pieces to the mixture. Making sure all the chicken pieces are coated well. Then set it aside for half an hour or so allowing it to marinade.

Step 5:

Turn the stove onto 'HIGH' and then add the oil to a pan. Heating till smoking hot. Then add the marinade chicken until its tender (usually takes 4/5 mins).

Step 6:

Add the cut up vegetables and cook for 3/4 min. Until vegetables becomes soft. Adding seasoning when needed. Make sure you keep moving the pan so the ingredients don’t BURN.

Step 7:

Garnish with some chopped up parsley. And place contents into a plate.

Step 8:

Serve the plate with some warm tortilla bread (looks like chapatti’s for all those who don't know ;)).

Allowing your guests to fill their own bread with as much chicken and veg as they want. I usually serve with some sour cream and tomato salsa (available at your local supermarket) to add ontop.



Mayb u should add a picture or somthin.
Coz my parents had no idea what Fajita's was until i introduced them to it.

When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it is not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.

Don't u have a recipe for salsa.


I might try that when I need to, Seraph. Thanks your recipes can really help.

I have a friend who went to London to study but had NEVER cooked for himself. And after a week of takeouts he was sick of it. So i tend to pass alot of these onto him.

I just buy my own salsa but im sure you can find a recipe on the net somewhere.
