FAJITAS

Fajitas are one of the finest american foods which also counts for its nutritive value and I promise you wont miss saying a 'OMG' to this meal. Also this is I guess the easiest way to make fajitas in exactly less than 30 mins. The BEST chicken fajitas are so quick to throw together! Chicken gets marinated in the best juicy lime marinade, then seared for that unmistakable crisp-charred outer edge! Serve with onions and bell pepper strips and dear you're so good to gobble up. What are you waiting for - hurry, make and eat!

INGREDIENTS TO MARINATE THE CHICKEN- 

  • Cumin

  • Olive oil

  • Garlic

  • Chili (how about using green chilies rather than the red ones)

  • Lime Juice 

  • Salt (as per your taste) 

  • Pepper

INGREDIENTS FOR 4 SERVINGS-

  • 2 tablespoons  lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 large garlic clove, minced

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2-1 teaspoon ground chili 

  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro (optional)

  • 1 1/2 pounds (650 grams) chicken thighs, skinless and boneless

  • 3 large bell peppers (or capsicums), cut into strips (I use green, red and yellow)

  • 2 onions thinly sliced

  • 2 avocados, peeled, seeded and sliced

LET'S MAKE IT! -

  • In a large shallow bowl, combine lime juice, oil, garlic, cumin, salt, chili and cilantro; mix together. Add the chicken thighs and If time allows, let marinate for 30 minutes.

  • Heat a large skillet or pan (12-inch | 30cm) on medium-high heat until smoking. Add a drizzle of olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Sear the chicken on both sides until golden, charred and cooked right through (about 8 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your fillets). Flip them a couple of times while cooking so they get a nice even char.Transfer chicken to a warm plate, loosely tent with foil and let rest. 

  • Add the peppers and onions to the skillet (drizzle with a little extra oil only if needed), and cook until the onion is soft and the peppers are slightly charred and cooked to your liking. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Slice chicken into strips.Serve with warmed tortillas, chopped cilantro and sliced avocado (plus your desired fillings).
