Ingredients

For the fajitas

  • 3 chicken breasts cut into strips
  • Juice of 2 limes (and a little bit of the pulp too)
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne chilli powder
  • 1 tsp paprika or smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 bell peppers (red or green) chopped
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • A large iceberg lettuce
  • Pink salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the guacamole

  • 2 avocados
  • Pink salt

For the salsa

  • Large handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 5 spring onions finely chopped
  • Small handful of fresh coriander finely chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Directions

  1. Place the lime juice, oregano, cayenne chilli, paprika, cinnamon and some salt & pepper in a bowl and mix well. Now add the chicken stripes and mix until the chicken is fully covered. (Feel free to leave this to marinate for about 30 mins to maximise the flavour).
  2. Heat the coconut in a pan and add the chicken, cook for about 2-3 mins before adding the onions and bell peppers and stirring well. Cook until chicken is cooked through and the onions and peppers have softened. Whilst this is cooking through you can prepare the guacamole and salsa. 
  3. For the guacamole simply mash the avocados in a bowl with the pink salt. Easy.
  4. For the salsa just mix the tomatoes, spring onions, fresh coriander and olive oil together in a bowl. You are good to go.
  5. Hold the lettuce leaf in your hand, spoon in a portion of the chicken, top with the guacamole and then the salsa, fold the leaf around the filling and sink your teeth in. You will love it 🙂
