Continuing on with the theme of comfort food now the weather is changing, I am sharing one of my favourite dishes – chicken fajitas. But this recipe is so easy to make, as everything is done in one pot and pretty much just thrown together. Perfect for those busy Autumn nights we will all be having.

Who doesn’t love a dinner where you can throw everything in to one pan and cook it? It means less washing up, which is always good with me. Not only is this dish packed full of flavour and can be as mild or as spicy as you like, it is low in calories and high in protein. You can serve it with tortillas or have it on brown rice or with a salad.
I love kitchen equipment. Pots, pans, blenders, food processors, spatulas and Tupperware. I used to have cupboards over flowing with the stuff, but now I am going for quality over quantity, which is why I am in love with the Le Creuset brand. I haven’t come across any better quality pots and pans before, which I why I am switching out all my old ones for new Le Creuset ones. They are hard wearing and incredibly easy to wash. They are on the heavy side, but that’s just because of the quality, so see it as a mini cooking workout when you are lifting them up.
