Although in northern Mexico ‘fajitas’ refers to a specific cut of beef, elsewhere in the world the term has come to describe a combination of sizzling pan-grilled chicken strips with peppers and onions, wrapped in a flour tortilla. The dish has very little fat, but lots and lots of fresh flavours.

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.
