Fajitas are delicious, and I find, an opportunistic meal. I had a few peppers and an onion in my fridge, with my spice cupboard stocked all I really needed was a little chicken and some tortillas and I was pretty much ready to go!

Serves 2
Calories Count:
350 per serving
Cooking Time: 20 minutes

2 chicken thighs
2 peppers (different colours)
1 onion
Tortilla Wraps
Turemeric, Salt, Chilli Powder, Cinnamon and Cayenne Pepper.

Get a nice big pan on a medium high heat with a little oil. Not too high though, as otherwise the chicken will cook too fast on the inside and be dangerous on the inside, it's better to be careful with chicken, take your time. You can't rush perfection!

Chop your chicken into small bite size chunks, use either a plastic chopping board, for health reasons, or (my preference) snip it into a bowl with scissors. If you put a piece at a time into the pan, it'll cook at different speeds.

Once each piece has gone a nice white all over, snip your onion, peppers (and any other veg) into thin ribbons. They're a lot easier to wrap this shape! Give these about five minutes.

At this point your peppers should still have plenty of colour, but should have gone nicely succulent and juicy! Now, time to make that spice mix! Just so you know, regular spice mixes are ok, but this, for me, is just another level!

Mix a teaspoon of each of your spices in a small bowl... maybe a little extra chilli powder for a little more punch! Test a little of it, you want it to be EXTREMELY flavourful, as this is going to be in with not only chicken, but your veg, wraps AND whatever sauce you're going for.

Mix this all through in your pan. Not only should you have plenty of smokeyness from the cayenne and the chilli powder, the salt will give it some bite, the turmeric will give it colour and a nice hum, and the cinnamon which will give it a beautiful aroma.

Serve this up with a little cheese, some fresh cherry tomatoes, maybe a little salsa and guacamole too?
