Chicken Fajitas

It was a slow week in Cookathon’s kitchen.

It was time to take a small break after the Eid holidays. After all the festivities and the impromptu get-togethers of family and friends, I must say, it was a much needed break from all the cooking. All week long I have been surviving on light sandwiches. They really were pretty simple and not much to share with you guys, except for this one chicken wrap that I am giving out my recipe for.

This Mexican wrap is easy to make and packed with flavours. Its got the tangy sharp cheddar cheese, the crunchy veggies, the soft of the olives, the creamy avocados. But the highlight of this wrap is the chicken that is sautéed in the sour Worcestershire sauce.

Worcestershire sauce! What can I say? Having this sauce is a must in your pantry. Use it as a quick marinade, a dressing or a cooking sauce; a few dashes of this sour fermented sauce spikes up any dish that is lacking in flavour. 

Here is the recipe for my chicken fajitas.
