Provided by Member recipe by Steven Morris

Categories     Dinner, Main course, Supper

Total Time 25 minutes

Prep Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 10 minutes

Yield 3

Number Of Ingredients 14

2 large chicken breasts, finely sliced
1 red onion, finely sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 red chilli, finely sliced (optional)
1 heaped tbsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp ground coriander
pinch of ground cumin
2 medium garlic cloves, crushed
4 tbsp olive oil
1 lime, juiced
4-5 drops Tabasco
6 medium tortillas
bag mixed salad
230g tub fresh salsa

Steps:

  • Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and wrap 6 medium tortillas in foil.
  • Mix 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 Tabasco together in a bowl with a big pinch each of salt and pepper.
  • Stir 2 finely sliced chicken breasts, 1 finely sliced red onion, 1 sliced red pepper and 1 finely sliced red chilli, if using, into the marinade.
  • Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot and add the chicken and marinade to the pan.
  • Keep everything moving over a high heat for about 5 mins using tongs until you get a nice charred effect. If your griddle pan is small you may need to do this in two batches.
  • To check the chicken is cooked, find the thickest part and tear in half – if any part is still raw cook until done.
  • Put the tortillas in the oven to heat up and serve with the cooked chicken, a bag of mixed salad and one 230g tub of fresh salsa.

EASY CHICKEN FAJITA RECIPE | JAMIE OLIVER CHICKEN RECIPES



Easy chicken fajita recipe | Jamie Oliver chicken recipes image

This quick fajita recipe is a feast of flavours and colours – get stuck in!

Total Time 25 minutes

Yield 2

Number Of Ingredients 20

1 red pepper
1 medium red onion
2 skinless free-range chicken breasts
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 small pinch of ground cumin
2 limes
olive oil
4 small flour tortillas or 2 large
150 ml fat-free natural yoghurt
50 g Cheddar cheese
½-1 fresh red chilli to your taste
15 ripe cherry tomatoes
1 bunch fresh coriander (30g)
1 lime
extra virgin olive oil
1 small handful of mixed-colour rip cherry tomatoes
½-1 fresh red chilli
a few sprigs of fresh coriander
1 ripe avocado
1 lime

Steps:

    1. Put a griddle pan on a high heat.
    2. Halve, deseed and slice the pepper into thin strips, then peel, halve, and finely slice the onion. Slice the chicken lengthways into long strips, roughly the same size as the pepper strips.
    3. Put the peppers, onion, and chicken into a bowl with the paprika and cumin. Squeeze over the juice of half a lime, drizzle over 1 tablespoon of oil, season with a good pinch of black pepper and mix well. Put aside to marinate for 5 minutes or so while you make your salsa.
    4. For the salsa, finely chop the chilli, roughly chop the tomatoes and the coriander (stalks and all), then place in a clean bowl with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Squeeze over the juice of 1 lime, and stir in the coriander.
    5. Using tongs, place the pepper, onion, and chicken onto the griddle and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the chicken is golden and cooked through. As the pan will be really hot, keep turning the pieces of chicken and vegetables over so they don’t burn – you just want them to lightly chargrill to give you a lovely flavour.
    6. To make the guacamole, squeeze the cherry tomatoes onto a board, then finely chop with ½ -1 red chilli and a handful of coriander leaves, including the top part of the stalks.
    7. Halve and destone the avocado, then squeeze it over a board so the flesh comes out of the skin. Discard the skin. Squeeze over the lime juice and chop everything together until fine. Taste and adjust the flavours, if needed.
    8. Warm the tortillas in a microwave or warm, dry frying pan, then divide between serving plates. Squeeze the remaining lime juice over the sizzling pan.
    9. At the table, carefully help yourselves to the chicken and vegetables straight from the hot grill pan. Just be sure to put it down on top of something that won’t burn, like a chopping board.
    10. Serve with bowls of natural yoghurt and guacamole, alongside the Cheddar, a grater, and the lovely fresh salsa.

HEALTHY FAJITA RECIPE | JAMIE OLIVER CHICKEN RECIPES

    1. Put 1 tablespoon of oil into a bowl with the vinegar, chilli sauce, oregano, paprika and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Crush in the unpeeled garlic through a garlic crusher and mix together.
    2. Peel and halve the onion, slice into 1cm-thick wedges, then slice the chicken lengthways 1cm thick and toss both in the marinade. Leave in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or preferably overnight.
    3. Prick the whole aubergine all over with a fork. Blacken the whole peppers and aubergine over a direct flame on the hob, or in a griddle pan on a high heat, until charred and blistered all over.
    4. Pop the peppers into a bowl and cover with clingfilm for 10 minutes, then scrape off most of the black skin, discarding the stalks and seeds.
    5. Pinch the skin off the aubergine and trim off the ends. Nicely slice it all 2cm thick, dress on a platter with the juice of 1 lime and a few picked coriander leaves, then taste and season to perfection.
    6. Cook the chicken and onions in all that lovely marinade in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until cooked through, turning halfway.
    7. Peel, destone and finely slice the avocado, and squeeze over the juice of half a lime.
    8. Warm the tortillas in a dry frying pan for 30 seconds, then keep warm in a clean tea towel. Take it all to the table, with the feta and the remaining coriander leaves, and let everyone build their own.
