Chicken Fajitas

    40 min

    Chicken thighs are used in this recipe, but skinless breasts could be used instead. Be careful not to overcook, as the result could be rather dry chicken. Serve with warm flour tortillas, spicy salsa and soured cream.

    Altered ingredient amounts. added teaspoon cumin, teaspoon smoked paprika and 1/2 lime. Also used half fresh chili in marinade and added a garlic clove and other half of chilli but deseeded when I was frying off the peppers etc. Didnt have cider vinegar but had white wine wihich seemd to work just aswell. This is the most delicious fajita recipe I have found and well defo b sticking with it!  -  31 Jan 2010


    Used different ingredients. I added 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika for a warmer taste. I also added 200g of chopped tomatoes and a tablespoon of tomato pure after frying off the onions and before adding the turkey. This gives you a thick tomato sauce which lets you simmer and reduce softening the meat. Then added the peppers in last 7-10 mins. Lovely recipe. Will defo use again  -  23 Oct 2010
