4. Cook chicken on a preheated barbecue grill for 3-4 minutes, turning or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate.

Tip 1: To save time you can also use a 40g packet Fajita seasoning mix with 2 tablespoons oil instead of making your own marinade.
Tip 2: Tortillas can be torn and barbecued for quick crisps to serve with dip
Tip 3: Replace the chicken with two thickly sliced large eggplants for a vegetarian alternative.
