Indian Style Chicken Fajitas with Mint & Coriander Mayo
A different take on everyone's favourite Chicken Fajita recipe. We coated chicken and vegetables in Indian spices, wrapped them in soft roti flatbreads and served them with a cool and fresh mint & coriander mayo relish! Our novelty Indian Spiced Chicken Fajitas recipe is definitely the one to make when you fancy a hearty flavoursome lunch! Try it with simple wheat tortilla wraps if you don't fancy making the flatbreads! A vegetarian option using paneer cheese is just as good too, if not better!

If you're making your own rotis, start with making the dough first (our recipe to follow: https://somebodyfeedseb.com/indian-flatbreads)
Prepare the relish. Put chopped coriander and mint in a pestle and mortar with a tbsp of lemon juice and crush into a paste. Mix it with mayonnaise, a tbsp of water and a tbsp of olive oil. Set aside until serving.
Mix chicken strips and all the spices in a bowl and set aside to marinade for a few minutes whilst you fry the vegetables.
Fry 3/4 of red onion and all of the sliced yellow pepper for 5 minutes until softened. Add the chicken strips and fry for another 6-7 minutes until cooked through. Finally, add the halved cherry tomatoes and cook for another minute.
Remove the chicken and vegetables from the heat and sprinkle the chicken mixture with nigella seeds.
Serve all the elements separately to assemble at the table: chicken and vegetables, mint & coriander chutney, warmed through rotis or tortilla wraps, shredded lettuce and the reserved sliced red onion.
