Being a wife and a mum I thinks it's very important to be able to have home cooked meals every day and it is something that I will also pass on to my daughter when she is old enough. Although she is already helping when it comes to putting together her dinner. She gets the ingredients from the fridge and she helps to break eggs and mix things and she has also started helping me to flip her pancakes. For a two year old this is highly exciting. Chicken Fahjitas are one of my favourite things to cook. They are delicious and are seriously great for dinner parties and when we have friends over as they are quick to cook and leave people nice and full. I cooked this a few weeks ago and took the pictures to see how it turned out. Because of college and my exams I'm only getting the chance to do the post now. I really hope you enjoy.
|5 Chicken Fillets cut into medium sized cubes|
|Half a green, red and yellow bell peppers, cut into cubes|
|An Onion choped finely and 2 cloves of garlic, chopped or crushed|
|Peppers added to pan|
|Allow the veggies to be cooked, but not overcooked|
Throw in your garlic and mix, Remove all ingredients from the pan after the garlic has cook for 1 minute. Any more than this and the garlic loses it's flavour and begins to burn. Remove all vegetables from the pan and Place in bowl for later. Take your chopped chicken and put into your pan on a medium to high heat. Add a little more olive oil if necessary. Toss your chicken until sealed/white all over.
|Coat the chicken and allow to whiten all over|
Sprinkle each of your spices over the chicken and stir in until the chicken is fully coated. I don't have measurements either. I am so used to making it at this stage, I kind of just sprinkle and go.
|Allow to Simmer|
As I have aid already, I am always cooking for a child. This means that every meal I prepare has to have a method to ensure my 2 year old can eat it. Beacuse the fahjitas are slightly messy for a child I prepare it slightly diffently on the tortilla. I take a the tortilla and place the chicken and veg on one side. I add a little sour cream so it's not too spicy for her and then place 2 slices of cheddar cheese on the mixture.
|Preparing 2 year old friendly|
I fold the tortilla over on itself and heat it until the cheese melts. This makes sure that the mixture stays in the tortilla when she's eating it. I slice it up once cool and she adores it.
