  1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and peppers to the pan and cook for 5-10 minutes until softened and light golden brown. Stir in the chicken and fajita seasoning and cook for a further 2 minutes, stirring.
  2. Pour in the barbecue sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring, until fully heated through.
  3. Serve the chicken and vegetables in tortillas with a variety of your favourite accompaniments.


Fajitas are great served with accompaniments. Why not try salad, jalapeños, limes and spring onions.

Serve the fajitas with some grated mature Cheddar cheese sprinkled over, if you like.
