Chicken Curry Fajitas

If you found this page by doing a Google search for chicken curry fajitas then you have to be congratulated...........what the hell are your doing searching for chicken curry fajitas?!

I mean, this has to be fusion cookery in the extreme and it came to me when I'd been camping with my wife for a couple of weeks in Europe and she was starting to crave the things that we get to eat in the UK.

It started in the morning when she said “I could just do with a plate of bacon and eggs” (and that was hard enough to satisfy) but in the evening when I asked her what she fancied for dinner, the answer came back “A nice curry”.

Is there too much in there to wrap it up?

So how do you prepare a curry in the middle of nowhere with a BBQ grill and not a naan bread in site? Well if you're like me you improvise and make curry fajitas. Break out a pack of tortilla wraps and use some curry powder for your rub.

They tasted great and I can't wait to do them again. So there you have it. That's my reason for needing a recipe for curried chicken fajitas, what's yours?

Serves:- 4 people

Preparation Time:- 10 minutes
Marinade Time:- 30 minutes
Cooking Time:- 20 minutes

Total Time:- 60 minutes


  • 4 skinless boneless chicken thighs
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of curry powder
  • 1 clove of freshly peeled, chopped garlic
  • Salad of your choice (shredded lettuce, cabbage and tomatoes)
  • Yogurt or raita
  • Flour tortillas


Place the chicken thighs in a mixing bowl with the curry powder, salt and the chopped garlic and thoroughly mix it in. Allow the mix to stand for 30 minutes so that the flavors can mingle.

Grill the chicken over medium coals for about 10 minutes on each side and then remove from the heat and allow 5 minutes for the meat to rest.

To serve, slice the thigh meat into long thin strips and place them in a wrap with the salad and yogurt (or cucumber raita) roll up your wrap and tuck in.

That's it, now the only problem is how to categorize this recipe, Mexican or Indian?
