Healthy Chicken Fajitas

Chicken Fajita Wrap Recipe

This healthy chicken fajita recipe is one that we presently eat at least once a week, as it is part of a diet we are on at the moment. It is really healthy, easy and quick to prepare and tastes fantastic.

Ancho Chilli Marinade

The Ancho chilli marinade mix we bought from Aldi, but I am sure you can find a similar alternative in your local store. We could have come up with a chicken fajita seasoning recipe, but hey, why make it difficult when you have a solution for less than a $ ? This authentic Mexican chicken fajita marinade is really good!

Bull’s-Eye Smoky Chipotle Sauce

For the smoky taste we used the spicy Bulls-eye Smoky chipotle sauce which we bought at Tesco’s. This is really a great tasting sauce that makes this a spicy chicken fajita recipe.

Fajitas

We discovered this combination really gives a nice taste and it gives you flavorful chicken fajitas which taste just like the ones we used to eat at our favourite Mexican restaurant in Gouda called Xochimilco. This restaurant is an affordable and super little restaurant that serves up fantastic Mexican food in the centre of Gouda. Well worth visiting if you are ever in the neighbourhood.

I once had a holiday in Cancun many years ago and unfortunately could not really enjoy the Mexican food there as I was stricken with a bout of Montezuma’s Revenge for pretty much the entire week. Pretty sure it came from the ice in the margaritas, and not the food, but we will never know for sure.

I do not cook the onions in this recipe as I like them raw sometimes. You could also use a red onion which is what I normally use, but I did not have any in the house when I made this. You could also cook them with your peppers if you prefer. I added the asparagus as a last minute thing as I had a few to use up, but I thought it worked well.

These healthy chicken fajitas are delicious and very easy to make. If you marinade during the day they only take 15 minutes to make.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 500g chicken breast (3 breasts)
  • 1 bag of Ancho Chilli seasoning
  • Bull's-Eye Smoky Chipotle Sauce

  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 6 small tortilla wraps
  • 6 green asparagus
  • 1 brown (or red) onion sliced

Instructions

  1. Chop the chicken into small strips or chunks. Then cover with the chilli seasoning. If you have time it is better if you let it marinade in the fridge for a few hours, but it is not essential.
  2. Prepare the peppers and onion by slicing them.
  3. When you are ready to eat, fry the chicken in a skillet until cooked. At the same time fry the peppers and asparagus in a different pan until browned.
  4. Heat the wraps in the microwave according to the package instructions.
  5. Then assemble the wrap: chipotle sauce, chicken, pepper, asparagus and raw onion slices and munch away!

Notes

These quantities will give you 6 wraps, enough for 3 people.
