Spicy As Flip Chicken Fajita 1.0

Spicy As Flip Chicken Fajita 1.0

Many MANY years ago I was introduced to the world of fajitas by a friend of mine and I’ve loved playing with the recipe to come up with different ways of making them.

For me this recipe gives me everything I want and I don’t miss the wrap!

It’s a bonus that this recipe is super easy and is one of my staple recipes!

This is one of the many recipes I created when I followed the 90 Day Plan by The Body Coach. Simply use your plans ingredient amounts instead of those shown in the recipe. There are 220 Create Your Own (CYO) friendly recipes in my app and on this website.

Ingredients for 1 serving

267 g chicken breast, cut into thin strips
52 g peppers, sliced
46 g onions, sliced
39 g cheddar cheese, grated
6 g olive oil
1 garlic clove, chopped or crushed
1 chilli, sliced, seeds or no seeds up to you!
149 g salad leaves
1 tsp smoked paprika
46 g reduced fat sour cream
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp water
10 g fresh coriander, chopped
6 pickled jalepeno slices
1 lime, juice only


  • Add the olive oil to a frying pan and put it onto a medium heat.
  • Add the chicken and cook for approx 4 minutes.
  • Now add the peppers and onion and continue to cook them until the vegetables have softened a little.
  • Add the garlic and chillies and give the ingredients a good stir before adding the dried spices.
  • Give everything a good stir to coat the ingredients with the spices and to cook out the spices.
  • Add the tablespoon of water at this point as the pan is likely to be a little dry.
  • Arrange your salad onto the pate.
  • When you’re happy the chicken is cooked (it should be firm to the touch) pour the lime juice over the chicken and arrange the chicken mixture on top of the salad
  • Top the chicken the chopped coriander, cheddar and sour cream.

Recipe Notes

  • If after adding the water you feel the pan is still a little dry, add a little more water instead of oil.
  • And if you’re feeling brave why not have a few jalapeno slices to add another note to the flavours!
  • The pickled jalapeno slices I use contain no added sugar.
