Chicken Fajita Wraps – Cooking with kids

I regularly cook with my boys.  Not always sweet things, but dinners too and one of our family favorites is this simple recipe for chicken fajita wraps.

This is a brilliant and simple recipe for the boys to cook, which is filled with colour and flavour and both of them love wraps.  There is something really social about sitting round a table full of bowl and eating with your hands.

We have been growing our own peppers in the conservatory this year and this is a great recipe for using them.  The boys have had so much fun, growing, cooking and then eating their own peppers.


  • Chicken Breasts – one per person
  • 3 peppers
  • 2 onions
  • Fajita seasoning – we use swartz, but you can make your own
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato puree
  • Wraps


We have two ways of cooking this, one in our crock pot and the other in a large pan, depending on our plans for the day.  It is a great slow cooker recipe, but you do have to drain the additional liquid off it before serving.


Cut your chicken breast into bite sized pieces before frying with a tiny bit of oil, until golden brown.


Slice your peppers into colourful strips.


Cut your onions into rings of slices.  We always leave the root on when cutting onions as it reduces the release of chemicals that make you cry when cutting them.

Add the peppers and onions to your pan and cook for 10 more minutes before adding fajita seasoning and also 2 tablespoons of tomato puree and cook for a further 5 minutes.  We use Swartz seasoning, but Daisies and Pie has a fab recipe including all you need to make your own seasoning.


We warm our tortillas in the microwave for convenience.

We often serve this with lots of different accompaniments including sour cream, guacamole, cheese, salsa and fresh salad.
