  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 150g diced pancetta
  • 3 skinless chicken fillets, cubed
  • 150g button mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped

  • 200ml chicken stock
  • Freshly ground white pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2tbsp chopped chives
  • 2tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten

 

Method

 

Shortcrust pastry

Sift together the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl then add the diced butter, rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Mix in the cheese then add just enough egg to bring the mixture together as a firm dough. Knead lightly and the wrap the dough in cling film and chill until required.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.

 

The Filling

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, fry the pancetta until golden brown, remove to a large mixing bowl, in the same pan, fry the onions and garlic until they begin to turn light brown. Remove to the large bowl, then fry the mushrooms until golden, season with salt and pepper. When cooked put them with the pancetta and onions.

Add 1 tbsp Olive oil to the frying pan, make sure the chicken is dry before frying, then season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook the diced chicken in small batches, again cook until the cubes begin to turn golden at the edges. Remove the chicken and mix with the onion and mushrooms.

 

The White sauce

Melt the butter in a small-medium, clean saucepan, stir in the flour and cook for about 3 mins, stirring constantly until it has formed a thick roux, (smooth paste).

Heat the stock and milk, and add some white pepper and salt to taste. Pour the liquid slowly into the flour mixture in three batches, whisking all the time until smooth. Simmer over a gentle heat, stirring constantly, for about 5 mins or until the sauce has thickened.

Stir in the parsley and chives and pour the sauce over the chicken and mushroom mixture. Mix well, then spoon into a pie dish and leave until completely cool.

Roll out the pastry on a lightly-floured surface until it is the thickness of a pound coin.

Brush the edges of the pie dish with beaten egg then lay the pastry on top, press down the edges and trim. Brush the top of the pie with beaten egg and make 2 or 3 slits in the top of the pie to allow steam to escape.

Bake in the oven for 25-30 mins or until golden brown on top.

  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper

  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded, cut lengthwise into 6 pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, cut lengthwise into 6 pieces
  • 2 red onions, halved and each half sliced into 8
  • 2 Courgettes, cut into 12 long strips
  • 12 flour tortillas

Method

Puree the lime juice, chili powder, cumin, olive oil, and coriander and season this marinade with salt and pepper.

Place the chicken into a plastic bag and pour the marinade over it, turning to coat. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the top and chill for an hour.

Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a lagre pan and fry the asparagus, courgette, onion and pepper, until they are tender. Transfer to a roasting tin and keep warm in the oven.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and in the same frying pan, cook the breast fillets for 3 minutes on each side until lightly browned and cooked through. If unsure, cut one of the fillets through the middle to check it is cooked.

Grill the tortillas for one minute per side, or heat in the oven.

Arrange the chicken and grilled vegetables on a large warm plate, and place on the center of the table for all to help themselves.

Serve the warm tortilla wraps with the Mexican Rice, Guacamole, Salsa, grated Cheese, Sour Cream, sliced green Jalapeno Peppers, hot Chili Sauce, and chopped fresh Coriander then people can make their own fajita wraps.
