Sometimes it’s really hard to get kids interested in healthy meals. Meals that are ‘some assembly required’ are great options here. Kids love meals they ‘create’ themselves. As a bonus, these chicken Fajitas are also egg and nut free.
You Will Need:
700 g chicken thighs sliced into strips
1½ tbsp vegetable oil
½ tsp cumin ground
1 tsp paprika ground
¼ tsp cinnamon ground
2 garlic cloves crushed or finely diced
1 400 g can borlotti beans
1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
1 large onion sliced
1 large green capsicum sliced (red or yellow also fine – or use all three)
8-10 small tortillas
½ cup tomato salsa
½ cup natural yoghurt
1 cup guacamole (optional)
Place the chicken strips into a medium bowl.
Mix the oil spices and garlic together then rub over strips.
