GRILLED CHILLI LIME CHICKEN FAJITA SALAD

INGREDIENTS

 

Marinade/Dressing:

3 tablespoons olive oil

100ml (just over ⅓ cup) freshly squeezed lime juice

2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro/coriander

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon brown sugar

¾ teaspoon red chilli flakes (adjust to your preference of spice)

½ teaspoon ground Cumin

1 teaspoon salt

 

Salad:

4 chicken thigh fillets, skin removed (no bone)

½ yellow capsicum/bell pepper, deseeded and sliced

½ red capsicum/bell pepper, deseeded and sliced

½ an onion, sliced

5 cups cos lettuce leaves, washed and dried

2 avocados, sliced

Extra coriander leaves to garnish

Sour cream (optional) to serve

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

1. Whisk marinade ingredients together to combine. Pour half the marinade into a shallow dish to marinade the chicken fillets for two hours if time allows. Refrigerate the reserved untouched marinade to use as a dressing.

 

2. Heat about one teaspoon of oil in a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat and grill chicken fillets on each side until golden, crispy and cooked through. (Grill in batches to prevent excess water being released.) Once chicken is cooked, set aside and allow to rest.

 

3. Wipe pan over with paper towel; drizzle with another teaspoon of oil and grill/fry capsicum/pepper and onion strips until cooked to your liking.

 

4. Slice chicken into strips and prepare salad with leaves, avocado slices, capsicum/pepper and onion strips and chicken. Drizzle with remaining marinade/dressing and serve with (optional) extra coriander leaves and sour cream.

 

Serves 4.
