Cook the Rice
1

b) Pour the boiled water into a large saucepan with 1/4 tsp salt on high heat. 

c) Add the rice and cook for 10-12 mins. 

d) Once cooked, drain in a sieve and pop back in the pan. Cover with a lid and leave to the side until ready to serve.

Fry your Chicken and Veg
2

a) Meanwhile, halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips. 

b) Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

c) Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the diced chicken and sliced pepper. Season with salt and pepper.

d) Stir-fry until the chicken is browned all over and the pepper is softened, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. 

Add the Fajita Flavour
3

a) Add the garlic, Mexican style spice mix (add less if you'd prefer things milder) and tomato puree to the chicken. Stir-fry for 30 secs.

b) Stir in the chicken stock paste, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts). Season with salt and pepper.

Simmer and Stir
4

a) Bring the chicken to the boil, then lower the heat.

b) Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is cooked through, 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Time to Salsa
5

a) Meanwhile, cut the tomato into 1cm chunks. 

b) Pop the tomatoes into a medium bowl with a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, then set aside.

Finish and Serve
