Lemon & Parmesan Breaded Chicken Fajitas

Lemon & Parmesan Breaded Chicken Fajitas
  • Pack of chicken fillets
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Finely grated parmesan 
  • Golden Breadcrumbs
  • Flour tortillas
  • Sliced Jalapeños
  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 Pepper
  • Spring onions
  • Salsa, Sour cream, Guacamole  
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • Flour (small amount to dust the chicken)

Place enough breadcrumbs in a bowl to coat the amount of chicken fillets that you are using, grate the lemon zest and the Parmesan into the same bowl, mix it all together so there is an even spread throughout the mixture.  Dust the chicken fillets in the flour, dip into the beaten egg and then coat with the breadcrumbs.  Once done, put the chicken fillets in the fridge to firm.

Slice your pepper into thin strips, top and tail your spring onions, cut them down the middle length ways and then again with each half, then separate the layers.

In a frying pan heat enough vegetable oil in which to shallow fry your chicken fillets.  Once hot enough cook the fillets, turning every so often to ensure you get a good even crunch.  

Heat your tortillas, put some salsa & guacamole onto each one, top with a few slices of pepper and spring onion, place on a couple of chicken fillets, top with cheese, sour cream and the sliced jalapeños.  I also put a few shakes of Kankun Habanero Sauce on top, then fold your fajitas and enjoy.
