Fantastic Chicken Fajitas

Easy

Fajitas are a popular Tex-Mex dish made from marinated and grilled skirt steak served in wheat tortillas. The name of the dish is derived from the Spanish term “faja”, which means “strips” or “girdles” that describes the cheap cut of a beef — a thin layering of muscle that covers the diaphragm of a cow. Back in the 40s, workers at the ranch were given the least desirable parts of a cow — the head, intestines and “faja”. They would tenderize the meat by pounding and marinating it in lime juice. After that, the meat is cooked over an open fire and served with a variety of condiments rolled in a flour tortilla.

Since then, the fajitas are enjoyed globally and have evolved to suit our modern palate. These days, fajitas contain more expensive ingredients like the boneless sirloin or beef steak, paired with cilantro, onions, tomatoes, chilies and also sour cream and cheese. Check out this simple fajita recipe as a tasty appetizer or a healthy meal alternative! Firstly, marinade the chicken with lemon juice, cumin, paprika, chili pepper and MAGGI® CukupRasa™. On the side, grill onions and peppers until soft and a little charred. Then, take out the chicken and grill chicken for 5-10 minutes until cooked. Next, prepare the spread by mashing some avocado and add a squeeze of lime to prevent it from turning brown. Lastly, heat up tortilla wraps in a pan and then spread sour cream over it. Place chicken, mashed avocado and cheese on top, roll up and repeat the process for the remaining tortillas.
