Who wants to be a slave to the cooker ? Umm not me don’t get me wrong I like cooking , I like trying new recipies but when it comes to dinner time it need to be prepped cooked and served especially midweek when life is a bit busier. Marinade in the morning or the night before then it’s a case of throwing it in the pan and voila !
- Chicken fillets
- Red yellow & green peppers
- Romano lettuce
- Sour cream
For the marinade
- Chilli flakes
- Crushed garlic
- Olive oil
I used chicken fillets for this recipe , but thighs would work well . Place the chilli flakes paprika crushed garlic and oregano in a bowl add a good glug of olive oil and little bit of water and give it a good stir
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and add the chicken to the spices and cover . Leave in the fridge until you are ready to use .
For the salsa
- On the vine tomato
- Red onion
- Red or green chilli
Deseed the tomato and cut into small pieces and the chilli. Dice the cucumber and red onion and place them all in a bowl and give it a good stir
In a large pan heat some olive oil , remove the chicken from the marinade and place in the frying pan and fry until it starts going brown
Add the sliced peppers and fry until they soften and the chicken is cooked all the way through .
Cut off 2 leaves of the Romano lettuce and rinse under a tap pat dry with kitchen towel and place in your bowl .
Sprinkle some of the salsa over the lettuce and spoon the chicken over the lettuce and sprinkle a little bit more salsa on top and to finish a dollop of sour cream .
Your tacos are now ready to eat …. if your really want to indulge you can sprinkle some cheese on top and then the sour cream but I forgot this time ….
