Chicken Fajitas | Slimming World Friendly Recipe

    Delicious spicy chicken fajitas, completely Syn Free* when following the Slimming World plan. Lean, healthy and a hit with all of the family.

    Almost 11 years ago (whilst living the Sunny lifestyle in Lanzarote) I decided to make Chicken Fajitas for the first time ever.. and MrFatgirlskinny protested greatly… I think his words were “Oh i don’t want them… you know i hate peppers and stuff why would i like them?”…. I ignored him and made them anyway and now it’s his very favourite meal! Oh how i love to prove him wrong lol!

    We usually have Fajitas at least once a week and I wasn’t about to stop even being on my Slimming World plan! I have put together my Syn free recipe for you all to enjoy 🙂

      Hi, love this recipe and thank you, using lettuce leaves instead of wrap is a great idea! Thinking you mean tsp rather than tbsp of chilli/cayenne powder etc though as it would be really hot haha ( not that I would be complaining) 😉
