Chicken Fajitas

This quick and easy Mexican-style dish is versatile and fun to make.
This version uses mild seasoning, but feel free to add more spicy stuff if you like it hot.

Ingredients (makes 5 tortillas):
2 Chicken breasts
1 Large onion
2 Bell peppers
Lemon juice
Vegetable oil
Salt
Pepper
Cumin
Paprika
Dry garlic flakes
Flour tortillas

Implements:
Large frying pan

1. Slice the onion and peppers to strips
2. Slice the chicken breasts to strips
3. Put the chicken strips in a bowl and add the dry garlic, cumin, paprika and some lemon juice, stir and leave to marinate while the vegetables cook
4. fry the onion on a medium flame until it softens
5. add the pepper strips and stir, keep frying until the pepper softens a little, but still retains some crunchiness - we don't want a limp filling.
6. remove the vegetables from the pan and cook the chicken
7. warm up the tortillas from both sides and stuff them: put some vegetables in the middle, add some chicken and whatever additions you would like, such as sliced jalapenios, avocado, hot sauce etc.
8. fold up the bottom third of the tortilla, then fold the sides over each other
