These delicious slow cooked fajitas are perfect for an evening with friends. We’ve used gram flour to make the tortillas which is sometimes referred to as chickpea flour and makes a tasty, healthy and gluten free alternative to your typical tortillas.
When making the tortillas it’s important to make sure you only just cover the bottom of the pan with the mixture, otherwise you’ll end up making them too thick (a bit like pancakes) and they’re much easier to assemble when thin.
We like using the slow cooker to make meals when we have a busy day ahead, as it’s super easy to pop everything in!

  3. Slice the chicken breasts into small strips and layer on top of the onion and peppers.
  4. Sprinkle all of the spices on top of the chicken.
  5. Add the other half of the can of tomatoes, the lemon juice, honey, the rest of the peppers and onions on top, then leave on a low/medium heat for 6-8 hours.
  6. To make the tortillas: mix together all the ingredients until fully combined.
  7. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan, then pour in just enough of the mixture to cover the bottom of the pan and fry on a medium heat for 2 mins each side. Repeat until all the mixture is gone (should make approx 10-15 tortillas).
