Recipe: Chicken Fajita Seasoning

Blatantly swiped from Toasted Special’s fabulous recipe


  • 2 tsp sea salt (smoked if possible)
  • 2-3 tsp granulated sweetener sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp oregano (preferably the Mexican variety)
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika (smoked if possible)
  • 1 tsp dried onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chipotle chilli powder

Mix together the ingredients (I used a mortar and pestle to make me feel more like an Olde Timey Apothecary) and store in an airtight jar.

Method one:

  1. Brown chicken, onion and capsicum in a pan
  2. Add 1-2 tbsp of fajita mix (to taste, basically)
  3. Enjoy with salsa and zero fat craime fraiche

Method two (my fave):

  1. chop chicken breast into small nugget sized pieces, toss into mixing bowl
  2. toss with the fajita mix and 1/2 tbsp of oatbran until all the pieces are coated
  3. Cook under a hot grill, until a lovely dark golden brown, and enjoy as chicken nuggets

Many thanks to Toasted Special for the brilliant recipe – I’ve been enjoying it tremendously.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing this Charlotte!
    Do you store it in the cupboard or fridge?
    Can’t wait to make it 😀


    • So long as all the ingredients are dried (eg the mexican coriander) I store the mix in the cupboard.

      Enjoy! They’re especially good with an oatbran coating, fresh from the grill – it gives them that breaded feel, esp if the oatbran has gone all crispy.

      Enjoy! 🙂
