One pan chicken fajitas

  • ½ red pepper
  • ½ green pepper
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 pinch ground cumin
  • 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • fresh coriander


  • 4 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 limes, juiced

To serve

  • 2 small flour tortillas
  • 180 ml natural yoghurt
  • 75 grams Cheddar cheese grated


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Halve the green and red pepper and deseed them both. Slice half of the pepper into long thin strips. 
  • Top and tail the onion and remove the outer skin, cut into thin slices. Slice the chicken into strips.
  • Put the chicken, peppers, and red onion in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, paprika and cumin. Squeeze the juice of half a lime over everything, season with salt and pepper and mix well. 
  • Put it in the fridge to marinate for 20 minutes or more. If you’re short on time, just move on to the next step.
  • Oil a baking tray. Using tongs, place the pepper, onion, and chicken strips onto the oven tray. Make sure each piece has its own space and cook for 20-25 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Turn the pieces over once halfway through your cooking time.
  • Meanwhile, in a blender mix the cherry tomatoes, avocado and lime juice to make the guacamole.
  • When ready, remove the chicken and vegetables from the oven and sprinkle with fresh coriander leaves to garnish.
  • Serve with warm tortilla wraps, grated cheddar cheese, natural yoghurt and creamy guacamole. Enjoy!
