Step 1

Peel the garlic cloves and place in a small food processor or blender with the coriander (leaves and stalks). Whizz together until finely chopped.

Step 2

Add the lime zest, lime juice, cumin, paprika, olive oil, the white wine vinegar and salt. Whizz together again until you have a thick marinade.

Step 3

Slice the chicken into thin strips. Place in a bowl and pour over the marinade. Mix with a spoon until the chicken strips are completely coated in the marinade, then cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to soak up the flavours (note, you can skip the marinating if you're short on time but it does improve the flavour and texture of the chicken).

Step 4

Meanwhile, peel and slice the onion, deseed the red and green peppers and cut them into thin strips.

Step 5

When you're ready to cook, add the onion and peppers to the bowl of chicken strips and mix together until coated in the marinade.  Pour the chicken and vegetables into the air fryer basket or drawer.

Step 6

Air Fry at 200°C for 20 minutes. If your air fryer doesn't have a revolving paddle, make sure you give the basket a shake every now and again to ensure that everything cooks evenly.

Step 7

Once the air-fryer has finished, check the chicken is cooked - if you have a meat thermometer, the chicken should be at least 75°C .

Step 8

Heat the tortilla wraps according to pack instructions.

Step 9

Pop the chicken and vegetables into a serving dish, then bring them with the tortilla wraps, sour cream and grated cheese to the table and let everyone assemble their own fajitas.
