This was REALLY good, the whole family enjoyed and my boys went up for seconds, which is rare. I added a dollop of sour cream on top, perfect Saturday night TV dinner. Fab

Don't like kidney beans, used a tin of mixed bean salad instead. We both loved it but if using 200grms chicken makes enough for 3. When making again will use less.

Also added a bit of fajita spices and a squirt of BBQ sauce. Very tasty and 5 clean plates which is very rare!
