Notes

  • You don't have to use chicken in this. Swap the chicken for extra veggies, or use tofu, king prawns or steak strips.
  • You could serve this on top of rice, or with tortilla wraps, salsa and guac.
  • Try making your own fajita seasoning and store it in an air-tight container.
  • For extra flavour, try marinating the chicken and vegetables over night.
