ingredients

  • 1 red pepper, halved, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 1 green pepper, halved, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 2 medium red onions, halved and finely sliced
  • 2-3 skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 fresh red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime

For the salsa

  • ½-1 fresh red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 15 ripe cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Small handful of finely chopped coriander
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

method

  1. Spray a non-stick pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the peppers, onions, chillies, lime juice and spices and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes. Add the chicken, then stir-fry over a high heat for 5 mins until the chicken is cooked.
  2. Meanwhile, tip the salsa ingredients into a food processor, along with the lime juice and a little seasoning and pulse until finely chopped.
  3. Lay out the ingredients on a table and serve.

Tip: Marie says 'We love these fajitas with homemade coleslaw (cabbage, carrot and onion mixed with fat free plain yogurt), grated cheese (Healthy Extra ‘a’ choice) and rice. If I want a tortilla then I check out my favourite brand in Syns Online.'
