Ingredients

  • 2 red onions
  • 2 red peppers
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 spring onions
  • 12 small white tortilla wraps
  • 80g cheddar cheese
  • 2 large British chicken breast fillets
  • 4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 4 tsp ground cumin
  • 4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 160g natural yoghurt
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 32g tomato paste (2 tbsps)

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6. Combine the ground cumin, ground coriander, smoked paprika, dried chilli flakes (cooking for kids? Skip the chilli!), 2 tsp sugar and a pinch of salt on a plate. Mix all the spices together – this is your fajita seasoning.

  • Deseed the red peppers (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and cut into thin strips (as finely as you can!). Peel and finely slice the red onions.

  • Slice the chicken breasts into thin strips.

  • Add the sliced chicken to the fajita seasoning and give everything a good mix up until the chicken is fully coated in all the spices.

  • Boil a kettle. Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the sliced chicken, pepper and onion to the pan and cook for 3-4 min or until the peppers are beginning to soften.

  • Meanwhile, dissolve the tomato paste and the Kallo chicken stock cube in 150ml boiled water – this is your tomato stock. Add the tomato stock to the pan with the chicken and cook for 2-3 min further or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!) and the peppers have softened – this is your chicken & vegetable fajita filling.

  • While the chicken is cooking, add the tortillas to a baking tray and put the tray in the oven for 3 min or until warmed through. Grate the cheddar cheese. Dice the tomatoes finely. Trim, then slice the spring onions finely.

  • Serve the chicken & vegetable fajita filling over the tortillas. Top with the grated cheese and chopped tomato, dollop over the natural yoghurt, garnish with the sliced spring onion and enjoy!
