Cheeky Chicken fajitas with pea guacamole and tomato salsa

This dish feels like a cheeky cheat meal. In reality it is clean, nourishing and will satisfy both your angelic side and your cheeky side.

 Feeds: 2

Cooking time: 20-25 minutes


For the fajitas

  • Cos or iceberg lettuce cups
  • 2 lean chicken breasts, sliced in to strips
  • ½ red capsicum, sliced
  • ½ green capsicum, sliced
  • ½ red onion, sliced finely
  • paprika
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • Tsp. coconut oil

For the guacamole

  • 250g frozen peas, steamed and cooled
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • olive oil
  • Himalayan Salt and cracked black pepper

For the salsa

  • 3 large tomatoes
  • ½ red onion
  • olive oil
  • Handful fresh parsley


I make the guacamole and salsa in advance and leave in the fridge while I cook the chicken.

For the guacamole and salsa

  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend. Ensure that you don’t blend for too long because you want your guacamole to have a lumpy texture.
  • Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate
  • Wash out the food processor / blender and repeat the above process with the salsa ingredients.

For the chicken

  • Heat the coconut oil in a pan over a medium heat
  • Add the chicken, onions, capsicum and spices to the pan, stirring to combine as it cooks through.
  • Serve with the lettuce cups and condiments.

Top tip: If you like your fajitas spicy, you can add chilli to the mix in both the chicken and the salsa.
