Chicken Fajita Tart

April 10, 2014

I have been on a mission to clean out my cupboards and use up all the sachets and seasonings that are lurking inside them before I buy any more. The other day I needed to make a quick meal, we had all come in from work and school and were starving. I had a sachet of fajita seasoning in my cupboard that I hadn’t used. Normally I tend to buy fajita kits so I have the wraps as well as the seasoning but in this instance I had the seasoning but not the wraps. Luckily I did have some Jus Rol pastry in the freezer so I took inspiration from their advert. You know the one where the woman comes in from work, unrolls a sheet of pastry, chops up some chicken and pesto fries it up and bungs it on top on the pastry. She then produces a gorgeous tart from the oven which all the family tuck into. Luckily I had some chicken so I decided to try making a chicken fajita tart.

It was really simple to make, I chopped up an onion, some mushrooms and some red and yellow peppers and threw them into a frying pan with some diced chicken. When the chicken was nearly cooked I added the sachet of fajita seasoning. I then unrolled a sheet of Jus Rol placed it on a baking sheet, added the chicken to the top and placed it in a pre-heated oven for fifteen minutes.

The finished result was delicious and it hadn’t taken long to make at all. If I had made my own pastry it would have taken much longer. I know how to make shortcrust pastry, I still have memories of my domestic science teacher telling me half fat to flour as the ratio for shortcrust. Puff pastry is a bit of a mystery though and I have never made it. It is much easier just to unroll a sheet of Jus Rol and make a gorgeous creation. My family loved the dish as well and I will definitely be trying it again.

  1. I just happen to have all of this in my cupboards/fridge so I may just have to give that a go tonight 🙂

    Jus Rol is great. I always have a pack in the fridge, so convenient, easy and quick, and you can vary the toppings every time. That’s one inspired tart.

  3. That looks like a perfect quick supper. We love fajitas, never thought of combining with pastry, but will give this a go.

  4. I’m a big fan of Jus Rol pastry, there’s not much between it and homemade pastry, but it’s so much quicker and easier. We also love fajitas in our house, so this sounds like a great twist to the traditional fajitas 🙂
