Chicken Fajitas Recipe for the Tefal ActifrySince I became a member of the Tefal Innovation Panel and received my gift of a Tefal Actifry I've used it almost daily. In fact I would go so far as to say that it has completely changed to way I cook. We're a big fan of pastas,chilies, curries and Mexican food in our house and I used to cook these in my wok. This meant that I would have to stand over it stirring and supervising. No longer, I simply add the ingredients to my Actifry and set the timer! As a result I've been trying a few new things and recently decided to try cooking chicken fajitas by using my own spice mix,rather than a sachet from the supermarket. Obviously you can use any combination of spices but I found this one worked really well.
Here's my recipe for Chicken Fajitas, to serve 4:
For your spice mix you will need:
1x Chicken Oxo Cube, crumbled (or a chicken stock cube, ground finely)
2 tsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
1/2 tsp Onion Salt
1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground Coriander
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
For the Fajitas:
3x Chicken Breasts, cut into strips
1 Red Pepper, cut into strips
1 Red Onion, cut into Strips
6 sliced mushrooms
Your Spice Mix
Actifry spoonful of your prefered oil
Can of chopped tomatoes
2tbsp of Sweetcorn
8x Flour Tortillas
1.. Combine the spice mix ingredients in a mortar and pestle and grind them until they are of a uniform consistency. Set aside.
2. Place the chicken and vegetables in the Actifry with a spoonful of your preferred oil and cook for 10 minutes.
3. After 10 minutes add the spice mix, chopped tomatoes and sweetcorn, cook for a further fifteen minutes.
4. Transfer your Chicken Fajita mixture into a bowl and serve with the usual accompaniments.
We love this take on Chicken Fajitas and I'm definitely going to continue to make my own spice mix - it's so easy and cheaper than buying a sachet when you have all of the spices anyway! I hope you enjoy my version, why not try cooking it in your Tefal Actifry?
