Jamie Oliver’s Chicken Fajitas

I finally bought my first Jamie Oliver cookbook. I choose The Food Revolution because it is full of healthy recipes. This is the first recipe I made from it and it was so simple and delicious. I really admire the things Jamie has done for schools across the USA; he has tried to make school lunches healthier with much push back from the bureaucracy.

Put bell pepper, onion and chicken into a bowl and mix with paprika and cumin, squeeze 1/2 the lime over mixture and a bit of olive oil. Mix well and marinate while you make your salsa.

Make your salsa by finely chopping your chile, roughly chopping tomato and cilantro. Mix the chile and tomato together and add salt, peeper and juice of 1 lime, stir in cilantro.

Preheat saute pan with oil and add chicken mixture, cook for 6-8 minutes or until chicken in cooked through. Once cooked through, add juice of lime to finished dish.

Warm your tortillas, grate your cheese and serve it all together…yummmmmmm
