How to make it

  1. Heat a frying pan over a medium/high heat. 
  2. 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). 
  3. When cooked, remove chicken and leave aside.
  4. 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.
  5. 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).
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
