Kankuntastic Chicken Fajitas

Kankuntastic Chicken Fajitas

  • Pack of flour tortillas
  • Chicken fillets 
  • Bottle of Kankun Mexican Marinade Sauce
  • Grated Cheese
  • Chopped jalapeno peppers
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ pepper thinly sliced
  • Kankun jalapeno and habanero sauce
  • Guacomole
  • Sour cream


Method:
The quantities in this recipe depend on how many people you are cooking for.  Generally I find two fajitas per person is ample and I allow two piece of chicken fillet per fajita or one piece if using small tortillas as I did for this recipe (then 3 fajitas will do per person!).

Place the chicken fillets in a container and pour over enough of the Kankun marinade sauce to coat evenly.  You want to allow the chicken to marinade for at least 30 minutes, but preferably longer if time allows.

Grill or fry the chicken fillets until cooked through, this should only take around 10 minutes or so.  Heat your tortillas according to the packet instructions (unless of course you made them yourself, in which case, I'm pretty sure you know how to heat them up!).  I'm sure everyone has their own way of fashioning their fajita, however I like to spread the tortilla with a good dollop of quacomole, on top of which I place the pepper and red onion.  Unlike traditional recipes, I do not cook the veg that goes into my fajitas, I like to keep it crisp and raw!!  Then place your chicken ontop and dollop with sour cream and a good few dashes of the jalapeno and habanero sauce and the jalapeno peppers.  For the purposes of this post I put the cheese on top after I had taken the photographs, otherwise you wouldn't have been able to see anything! (I do like my cheese..).

In our household, this is what we call messy food so make sure you have a napkin to hand when eating and watch out for any spills!!  This meal is great at any time of the year and is a staple in our house.
