Chicken Fajitas

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!

Ingredients
  

  • 200 g chicken breast cut into strips
  • 10 g coriander leaves and stalks finely chopped
  • 10 g mint leaves finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • 8 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 yellow pepper deseeded and sliced
  • 1 red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 large lettuce leaves shredded
  • 50 g mayo
  • 1 tsp nigella seeds optional
  • 4 rotis (link to recipe in the text above) or tortilla wraps

Instructions
 

  • 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.
