Recipe Review: Chicken Fajitas

The other day I mentioned that we'd had an impromptu meal with some friends, and that the two children were thrilled that they got to enjoy one of the meals they'd inspired me to put on my menu plan.  Finally, a review of the recipe appears!  Normally when we have wraps, or 'roll-up's' as our two little friends have dubbed them, I throw chicken in the pan to cook and then slice it.  Terribly unadventurous, but it worked so that was it.

The other night, after watching the episode on YouTube, I decided to try the recipe from 'Nigella Kitchen' (p52).  A far superior version than my previous attempts, I have to say.  It was full of flavour and zing, and everyone really enjoyed the meal.  Definitely guest-worthy, if we're talking family meals with good friends.  I used a kilo of thigh fillets and doubled the marinade and seasonings on the meat, which fed nine hungry people perfectly.

You'll find the recipe here.  And because I now think I'm so clever, here's the YouTube clip ;0)

Oh, my goodness, I LOVE Nigella! Thanks so much for posting this video. And the idea of fajitas for company is great. Easy to do and so tasty!


P.S. I put something in the mail for Emma yesterday. Let me know when it gets there; I'm curious how long it will take.

See...I knew eventually I'd convert someone!!!

Emma will be ecstatic. Usually things take 1-3 weeks depending on the volume of mail. I'll let you know ;)
