Fajita Ingredients

  • 2 large chicken breasts finely sliced
  • 1 red onion finely sliced
  • 1 red pepper sliced
  • 1 green pepper sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper sliced
  • Tortilla Bread

Chicken Marinade Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp of ground cumin
  • Salt/Pepper to Taste
  • Vegetable Marinade
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Salt/Pepper to Taste

Serving Sides

  • Mexican Blend Cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa


  • Mix marinade ingredients together and set aside. Each separately.
  • Cut chicken into finger length slices, and toss in marinade. Set aside for 30 minutes. If your chicken is straight out of the fridge let it sit marinating in room temperature, this is better for baking later so it does not harden.
  • Preheat oven to 200C.
  • Meanwhile arrange veggies in your roasting tin, and rub with the vegetable marinade.
  • Arrange chicken next to the veggies, and then place in oven until well done.
  • Wrap the tortillas in foil and place them in oven to heat up and serve with the chicken, sour cream, cheese, and salsa.
