Chicken fajitas with red pepper salsa

My children love these chicken fajitas and I love sitting with them knowing that they are squealing with excitement over a well balanced meal! I think there is an element of everyone being in control here. By choosing their own ingredients they take ownership of their meal, which I think for them, is half the fun.


First, marinade the chicken. Mix together all the chicken ingredients in a bowl and set to the side for 30 minutes while you make the salsa and dip.

To make the salsa, place all of the ingredients in a frying pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes until all the juices have disappeared and the pepper and tomatoes are tender. Once cooked, add 1 tablespoon cold water to loosen if necessary and taste for seasoning.

Next, make the dip. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix. Taste for seasoning.

Finally, prepare the chicken. Heat 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil in a frying pan. Place the chicken chunks in the pan and cook over a medium heat for 7-10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.

Assemble as you wish. Fold in the bottom end and roll!



I tend to buy mini wholemeal wraps from the supermarket as they are easier for my youngest children to handle, or feel free to make your own! “
