  • 3 red onions cut into wedges
  • 2/3 hot chillies finely chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves crushed
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 limes grated and juiced
  • 6 chicken breast fillets cut into even sized pieces (3cm)
  • 8 peppers sliced into strips (red,yellow,orange mixed)
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 12 flour tortillas
  • Guacamole & soured cream to serve


  1. Put chillies, garlic, chopped coriander, lime rind and lime juice into a shallow dish.

  2. Add chicken and mix thoroughly. Cover with cling film and marinate for 6 hours.

  3. Add onion wedges and sliced peppers into a large shallow oven proof container. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and mix thoroughly to coat.

  4. Place vegetables into a pre-heated oven at 180C Fan and cook for 45 minutes turning occasionally.

  5. Heat the remaining olive oil in a wok to a medium high heat and cook the chicken in batches. Cover and keep warm until all the chicken is cooked.

  6. Cover tortillas with foil and place in a warm oven to heat gently.

  7. When all ingredients are cooked, take a tortilla wrap, place a small amount of soured cream and guacamole in the middle of the wrap and spread around the tortilla. Add onions and peppers followed by 5/6 pieces of chicken. Fold up from the bottom first and then in from the sides to form a wrap and hey presto, Mexican Fajitas!
