This easy one pan dinner inspired by classic Mexican flavours is soon to become a weekly favourite. Not only is this recipe jam packed with veggies, but being a one pan dish means minimal mess. It’s no wonder Laura makes this one pan dinner on the regular!

In our eyes, this dish is pretty much irresistible, not only due to it’s speedy preparation time, but because of the delicious spice blend which coats the chicken and veggies. The spice blend consisting of chilli powder, garlic powder, paprika, ground cumin and ground coriander will have you dreaming of Mexico while delighting your taste buds.

We also love making this dish as meal prep. Often we’ll find ourselves doubling the recipe – one half for dinner on the night we make the dish and the other half we’ll divide into our reusable containers and house them in the fridge ready to grab and go for the following days.

P.s. If you don’t have tortillas on hand, an easy alternative to accompany this dish is steamed rice.
