How to make it
- Heat a frying pan over a medium/high heat.
- In a bowl, cover the chicken breasts in a little olive oil and a little salt & pepper. Add to the pan until golden on both sides (5 minutes each side – but keep your eye on them!). Reduce heat to low/medium, place a lid on the pan and cook for another 6-7 minutes, or until cooked through (if using butterflied chicken breasts, this will be a little quicker. Cooking time will depend on the size and thickness of the breasts. Cut at the thickest point to check if cooked).
- When cooked, remove chicken and leave aside.
- To the frying pan, add the sliced onion, dried oregano and a little more olive oil or a knob of butter. Fry until nicely softened (10-12 minutes). Add garlic and cook for another few minutes, taking care not to burn it.
- Add the Gran Luchito Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix, stock, a handful of the roughly chopped coriander and a pinch of pepper (the Gran Luchito seasoning has salt in it).
- Bring the sauce to a gentle boil then whisk in the sour cream and Gran Luchito Mexican Sliced Cactus. Bring back to a gentle boil, then add the chicken breasts back in for a few minutes.
- Serve with the remaining coriander leaves and a sprinkle of Gran Luchito Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix. Serve with wedges of lime to squeeze over.
