Cooking on gas

This weekend we were at the Beaulieu International Autojumble. Essentially this is three fields full of enthusiasts and auto related businesses selling everything from model toys to motoring clothing, cars to car parts and pretty much everything in between.


I was working on a stall with the Other Half and the small person. Friday was dinner at Buckler’s Hard and the rather lovely pub that’s onsite.

Breakfast was generally bacon sandwich and Saturday night dinner was cooked on a two hob gas stove in front of our stall. Usually we would barbeque but currently it is a) broken and B) the replacement is with my mother in Lincolnshire. Time to come up with something filling, easy and vaguely interesting, preferably something that can be cooked in one pan. Introducir la fajita.

A quick trip to the supermarket furnished us with the basics:

Pack of tortilla wraps
Pack of chicken breasts
Onion, finely sliced
Mushrooms, sliced
Pepper, sliced
Fajita spice
Clover Cooking Spray


Using a fry pan we coated the bottom with cooking spray (flavoured with garlic in this case) and fried the chicken for 10 minutes or until cooked through and slightly browned, I sprinkled over the spice about half way through. The chicken was then stored in the grill pan under the hobs in our gas stove. Onions were then well softened in the same frying pan, with peppers and mushrooms thrown in towards the end. Once they were all cooked, I combined it with the chicken again until it was all piping hot.



Whilst it looked fairly classy for an outdoor (and very basic) meal, it was actually one of the easiest, quickest meals one the filling was piled into the middle of a wrap. Can have been too bad, the Other Half had four and the small person had three!
