Slow Cooked Creamy Chicken Fajitas

Slow Cooked Creamy Chicken Fajitas

1Chicken Fajitas has to be one of my favourite meals. There is just something about the way they taste and how you can enjoy them no matter what the occasion might be.

I have fond memories of a holiday in Lanzarote where we were sat outside at one of the cafes in the sunshine, while tucking into some delicious homemade chicken fajitas. They were so good that during a two week summer holiday we ended up going back twice for some more!!!!

Then I look back to nice date nights. When the kids are in bed and it is just Dominic & I. It is the perfect time to enjoy some chicken fajitas together while watching a romantic movie.

But that doesn’t mean that the kids don’t like them because they do. There have been many occasions where as a family we have sat down on a Saturday night to enjoy some chicken fajitas. From a serving point of view we love to have them with potato wedges, salad and maybe some coleslaw.

Though a lot of the time we have to make up the fajitas for the kids because they don’t do the wraps tight enough and the contents always end up on the floor!!!!

Ingredients
  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 120g Soft Cheese
  • 50Ml Milk
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 1 Large Carrot
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Pepper
  • 1Tsp Olive Oil
  • 1Cm Cube Ginger
  • 1Tsp Garlic Puree
  • 1Tsp Mixed Herbs
  • 1Tsp Mixed Spice
  • 1Tsp Paprika
  • 1Tsp Coriander
  • 1Tbsp Cajun Spice
  • Salt & Pepper
Instructions
  1. Heat up your slow cooker and place it on the low heat. Cut the cheese into bite sized strips, peel and dice the onion and then place both in the slow cooker.
  2. Add the oil and now make the sauce. Add all the seasonings into the slow cooker along with the milk and cheese. Stir it well until it resembles a nice sauce.
  3. Now prepare the vegetables. Create vegetable strips with the peppers and the carrot and then add them to the slow cooker.
  4. Leave to cook on a low setting in the slow cooker for five hours. Stir a couple of times during the cooking process.
Notes
If you need to have more milk to balance the cheese out, in order to make a thick creamy sauce. The way milk and soft cheese mixes together gives you a much healthier option than other traditional sauces.

Also we are wimps when it comes to spicy food, so if you do want to have it hotter then I would suggest adding more Cajun.
