Chicken Fajitas! (page 38, Food Revolution by Jamie Oliver)
Serves 2
This recipe goes really fast so be sure to have everything ready to go!
Ingredients:
1 red pepper
 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
 modified: 1/2 large regular onion because I didn’t have 1 medium red onion
 1 teaspoon paprika
 pinch ground cumin
 modified: 1 lemon because I had no limes
 olive oil
 modified: pita bread because I had no tortilla 
 sour cream
 modified: homemade salsa = 1 tomato, bunch fresh parsley because I had no cilantro, juice of lemon, teeny tiny bit of olive oil, chili flakes because I didn’t have fresh chili.)
To Make:
Marinate chicken, peppers, onion in paprika, cumin, salt and pepper, with good squeeze of lemon/lime and lug of olive oil for five mins.  Everything is sliced into strips.  (Very easy.  In fact, I was watching Cities of the Underworld while I made this.)
Heat pan on high until it’s very hot. 
Drop in marinated mix.  It starts sizzling really loud. Sounds like a proper kitchen.  Do not add any oil or butter. 
Stir a lot so nothing sticks.  It’s done in about five-ten minutes, when chicken is cooked through and peppers are softer. 
Heat up tortillas or pita bread and serve. 
I also chopped up the ingredients of the salsa, and mixed a bunch of fresh avocado for make-shift guacamole.  Perfect.  :)
Side note:  Don’t forget to season everything.  Salt and pepper in the chicken mixture, s&p in the salsa, and s&p in the guac.  Just don’t forget or it’ll be strangely bland.  :)
