Hey there foodies!
Welcome back for round two of classes. Why not kick of the semester with something delicious in the kitchen? I tried this out not too long ago and I have to share it with you guys. To begin, I was craving Mexican food, think Chilli’s…. *drools* and being the broke student I am, I can’t afford to dine there. Determined to satisfy my Mexican cravings ran off to Kajang and bought stuff to attempt to make chicken fajitas. Honestly, I have no exact recipe for this, I just threw some stuff together and hoped it wouldn’t explode in my face. Anyways, here’s my take on chicken fajitas.
Ingredients1 pack of chicken fillets or breast (cut the breast into fillets) 1 green pepper 1 red pepper 1 yellow pepper 1 onion 1 pack of mushrooms (any kind you like, I can’t afford oysters, so oyster mushrooms? close enough) Tortila wraps (I found Mission wraps in Kajang) Salt Pepper Oil Spices blend is an estimate. Alternatively, you could buy the Mexcian seasoning from Tesco. 1/2 teaspoon Chayenne pepper 1/2 teaspoon Oregano powder 1 teaspoon Cumin powder 1 teaspoon Chili powder Chicken prep 1. Mixed the spices together, as it is a rough estimate, feel free to adjust. 2. Season your chicken with salt and pepper. 3. Rub-a-dub-dub that spice blend all over your chicken with a little oil. 4. Leave it to marinade. Overnight for best results.
Veggie prep1. Wash 2. Slice them up.
Putting them all together
Chicken1. Heat a non stick pan till hot. (Important, it needs to be hot not warm. You want to sear in the juices and no oil required.) 2. Place the chicken on the pan, avoid over crowding. 3. Once the chicken in half cooked through, flip it. 4. Aim for chicken with a little char going on and put it a side to rest.
Veggies1. Heat a little oil in the pan on medium heat. 2. Throw all the veggies in and stir fry. 3. When the veggies are cooked through, you’re done.
Tip: I like my veggies a litter charred so I like to leave them untouched for few minutes on the heat.
Assembly1. Get wraps. 2. Slice chicken and place on wrap. 3. Pile on the veggies. 4. Wrap up 5. EAT
I hope you guys give this a try and enjoy it just as much as I did. If I were to make this again, I’d definitely go spicy with some hot sauce or curry powder. Feel free to experiment too!
Till next time foodies,
