Grilled chicken, halloumi and chorizo fajitas with mango salsa

Grilled chicken, halloumi and chorizo fajitas with mango salsa



  • 1 Mango
  • 1/2 Red onion finely diced
  • 3tbsp fresh chopped coriander
  • 1 Mild red chilli deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 200g Halloumi cheese
  • 8 Chicken fillet strips
  • 100g Sliced chorizo 
  • 4 Flour tortillas
  • Lettuce (shredded) cherry tomatoes (halved)

Method :-
First make the salsa, dice the mango (hedgehog method works best) and add the onion, coriander, chilli, olive oil, salt and pepper, mix to combine and set aside.

Pre-heat your grill to medium, place the chicken fillets on a foil lined tray and cook for 6-7 minutes turning once.  Add the sliced Halloumi to the tray and cook for a few minutes until the cheese starts to brown, turn over the cheese and continue cooking until the other side is also browned.  Whilst the chicken and cheese is cooking, heat a small frying pan and fry the chorizo until it crisps up.

Heat your tortillas according to instructions, place some of the lettuce and tomatoes on each of the tortillas and divide the chicken fillets and cheese onto each tortilla and top with the mango salsa.  

This is a light, fresh and zingy dinner; if you want to go the veggie option remove the chicken and chorizo.  For the chicken I dusted the fillets with Cajun spices to pep it up a bit, also you can spritz flavoured oil onto the Halloumi.
