Chicken Fajitas

Method

  • Heat a pan over medium heat.
  • Transfer the chicken fillets to a bowl. Add the salt, pepper, paprika, finely chopped estragon and the 20 g of olive oil.
  • Sauté for 2 minutes on each side and transfer to a baking pan.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the interior of the chicken reaches 65* C (149* F) (check the temperature with a kitchen thermometer).
  • Wipe the oil from the pan with paper towels and heat 20 g of olive oil in the same pan.
  • Thinly slice the onion and bell peppers.
  • Add to the pan and sauté for 2-3 minutes until they soften. Deglaze pan with lime juice and remove from heat.
  • Place a pot over high heat. Add 1 ½ liters water and 1 teaspoon salt.
  • Remove the hard parts of the asparagus stems and blanch for a few seconds until they soften.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove them from the pot and submerge in a bowl full of ice water so they can cool. This method will help them keep their intense green color.
  • Drain and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil over medium heat.
  • Season the asparagus with salt and pepper and saute for 1 minute, until they turn light golden. Remove from pan.
  • Cut the chicken into slices and sprinkle with some estragon.
  • Serve with tortillas and spicy avocado dip.
