Prepare a scrumptious meal with these easy chicken fajitas that are bursting with flavor. Follow the simple steps below to create a mouthwatering dish that will satisfy your taste buds. This was reported by SSPDaily.

Ingredients:

- 2 chicken breasts, finely sliced

- 1 red onion, finely sliced

- 1 red pepper, sliced

- 1 red chilli, finely sliced (optional)

Marinade:

- 1 tbsp smoked paprika

- 1 tbsp ground coriander

- Ground cumin

- 2 garlic cloves, crushed

- 4 tbsp olive oil

- Juice of 1 lime

- Tabasco

To serve:

- 8 tortillas

- Mixed salad

- 230g fresh salsa

Preparation:

Step 1: Preparing the Tortillas

Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Wrap 8 medium-sized tortillas in foil and place them in the preheated oven to warm through.

Step 2: Creating the Marinade

In a bowl, combine 1 heaped tbsp smoked paprika, 1 tbsp ground coriander, a pinch of ground cumin, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 4 tbsp olive oil, the juice of 1 lime, and 4-5 drops of Tabasco. Add a generous pinch of salt and pepper to the mixture and stir well.

Step 3: Marinating the Chicken

Place 2 finely sliced chicken breasts, 1 finely sliced red onion, 1 sliced red pepper, and 1 finely sliced red chilli (if desired) into the marinade. Ensure all ingredients are well coated in the marinade.

Step 4: Grilling the Chicken

Heat a griddle pan until it becomes smoking hot. Add the marinated chicken and the excess marinade to the pan. Continuously move the ingredients over high heat for approximately 5 minutes, using tongs, until a pleasing charred effect is achieved. If your griddle pan is small, divide this step into two separate batches.

Step 5: Checking the Chicken

To ensure the chicken is cooked thoroughly, locate the thickest part and tear it in half. If any part remains raw, continue cooking until fully done.

Step 6: Heating the Tortillas

Leave the tortillas in the oven until they are suitably warmed.

Step 7: Serving your Chicken Fajitas

Plate up your deliciously cooked chicken alongside the warmed tortillas. Accompany the dish with mixed salad and a 230g tub of fresh salsa for a delightful burst of flavor.
