Barbecued chicken fajita skewers
Skill level Easy
Servings Makes 6-8 skewers
Get the kids in the kitchen to prepare this easy BBQ chicken recipe, then assemble together with creamy guacamole on tortilla wraps.
For the fajitas
2 limes, plus wedges to serve
3 tsp Fajita Spice
1 tsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed or finely grated
4 chicken breasts
3 mixed coloured peppers
1 red onion
For the guacamole
2 ripe avocados
6 cherry tomatoes, halved
warmed tortillas, chopped coriander, soured cream or yogurt, plus chilli sauce for the grown-ups, to serve
1. Make the marinade. In a large bowl, juice both the limes. Add the oregano, , olive oil and garlic, and Fajita mix together. Dice the chicken, then get your child to stir it through the marinade, and set aside.
2. Prepare the vegetables. Deseeding the peppers and halving the onion is tricky, so do this yourself. Children aged from about seven or above can cut them into chunks using a child-friendly knife.
3. Make your skewers. Carefully thread alternate pieces of chicken, peppers and onion onto your skewers. Smaller children might find this a little hard, so the best way is to stab the ingredients and push them up the skewers. When you've used up all the ingredients, set aside. Can be made several hours ahead and chilled until ready to cook.
4. Prepare the guacamole. Stone and peel the avocados, then tip into a bowl with the other ingredients. Get your child to use a potato masher to mash everything together and tip into a serving dish.
