Step 1: You will need

  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 limes
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 2 onions
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 green pepper
  • Parsley for garnishing
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cayene pepper
  • 3 vegetable oil
  • 1 sharp knife
  • 1 chopping board
  • 1 plate or small tray
  • 1 large bowl
  • 1 large frying pan or griddle
  • 1 wooden spoon
  • 1 grater
  • 1 fork

Step 2: Chop the vegetables

De-seed the 3 different coloured peppers. Thinly slice them and the onions and put them aside on a plate.

Step 3: Prepare the chicken

Slice the chicken breasts into thin strips, about 3cm long.

Step 4: Make the marinade

Grate the rind of one of the limes into a bowl then squeeze the juice from both. Into this, add the caster sugar, oregano, cayenne, cinnamon and season with salt and pepper. Mix together well.

Step 5: Marinate the chicken

Add the chicken strips and mix until all the pieces are coated. Set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes – however, the longer you can leave it, the more the juices will soak in.

Step 6: Cook the chicken

Heat the oil in the pan or griddle over a high temperature until smoking hot. Add the chicken and the marinade and cook until tender. This will take approximately 4-5 minutes.

Step 7: Add the vegetables

Stir in the peppers and onions and cook for 3 more minutes until the vegetables are soft. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.

Step 8: Garnish and serve

Garnish with chopped parsley and serve the Mexican way. Put the chicken mixture into a warmed floury-tortilla, then add a spoonful of guacamole, sour cream and tomato salsa and roll it up.
