  • Large frying pan or griddle pan


  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 2 bell peppers cut into strips
  • 1 large onion sliced

Fajita Marinade

  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • generous pinch of salt and pepper

To Serve

  • warm tortillas
  • guacamole
  • sour cream
  • pico de gallo
  • grated cheese
  • shredded lettuce


  • Get all your toppings prepared before you start cooking - the fajitas are best served straight away.
  • Add all the marinade ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
  • Cut the chicken into thin strips, add to the marinade and mix together so all the chicken is fully coated. Allow to sit while you slice the vegetables.
  • Heat a large frying pan over medium to high heat and pour in the chicken plus all the liquid from the marinade.
  • Cook for about 5 minutes, tossing regularly, then add in the sliced onions and peppers.
  • Cook, continuing to toss everything regularly, until the chicken is cooked through fully and the peppers and onion have softened a little.
  • Serve immediately with warm tortillas and your choice of toppings. I like to place the warm pan in the middle of the table along with all the toppings so everyone can help themselves!
