Creamy Fajita Macaroni Chicken 5 0 5 1

A creamy Mexican chicken sauce over macaroni - yum!

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs 30 mins
  • 15 mins

    4 hrs 30 mins

    4 hrs 45 mins

  • Yields: 4-6


1-1.25kg skinless chicken thigh fillets

2 x 125g cans of diced capsicum - drained

300ml cooking cream

250g block of cream cheese, cubed

2 tablespoons of concentrated tomato paste

40g sachet of Mexican fajita seasoning

3 strands of green onions/eschalots, sliced

400g (raw weight) macaroni pasta, COOKED

Optional: fresh coriander to serve


1Slice thigh fillets into strips and add to slow cooker

2Add capsicum. (You can also swap this canned variety for one small red and one small green capsicum fresh, diced small, if you wish)

3Combine the cooking cream, cream cheese, tomato paste and fajita seasoning and pour over.

4Cook on low for 4.5hrs - adding in the fresh green onion slices only in the last 20mins of cooking.

5I cooked this in a 5L slow cooker and I had room to spoon in my cooked macaroni. Otherwise use another large bowl to combine the two to mix well.

6Serve immediately

7Lovely served with a sprinkle of fresh coriander (even if I'm the only family member who will eat this herb hahaha)

8Note: This is not spicy so suitable for the whole family
