Easy chicken fajitas

The protein source can be any meat free alternative or chicken/ beef strips. I used 'the vegetarian butcher' vegan chicken pieces.

Serves 1

For the serving shown (filling split across two tortillas with cooking oil and mayonnaise):



24g protein

1-2 corn tortillas

100g raw chicken breast or meat free chicken

1 small bell pepper, sliced 2 handfuls lettuce leaves

80g sweetcorn

1-2 tbsp fajita seasoning

Sour cream, avocado, mayo, or salsa to top

Olive oil for cooking

  1. Chop peppers and fry in one pan.

  2. In a small bowl coat the chicken strips in fajita seasoning then fry until cooked through.

  3. Cook sweetcorn for 2-3 mins as instructed.

  4. Optional - warm your tortilla.

Remember: you can modify recipes to make them better suit your nutrition needs and/ or calorie budget. For example, swap the cooking oil for a spray to save calories, increase the chicken serving for more protein, do 2 tortillas instead of 1 for more carbohydrate.
