Chicken fajita kebabs make a tremendous kids recipe, though adults will love them, too. The chicken is marinated in a range of punchy flavours, including Tabasco, chilli powder and garlic. For other great chicken dishes for kids view our mouth-watering children's chicken recipe collection.

Method
1.
In a large resealable bag, mix together the lime juice, garlic, hot sauce, oil and chilli powder
Room for a little one
Once you have added all the ingredients to the bag, tie the end and then let the little ones give it a good shake to mix together
2.
Season with salt and pepper. Reserve 1 tbsp of this marinade for the sour cream
3.
Add the diced pepper, onion and slices of chicken to the marinade

4.
Place the bag in a large bowl (in case the marinade leaks) and leave to marinate in the fridge for 1 1/2 hours
5.
Mix the reserved marinade with the sour cream in a bowl. Cover and place in the fridge until ready to use
6.
If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before using
7.
Remove the meat and vegetables from the fridge and allow to come up to room temperature
8.
Meanwhile, add the rice to a small pot, cover in cold water. Rinse by moving the rice around with your hands. Pour off the white milky water and repeat twice more
9.
Drain the excess water, leave to stand for 20 minutes. Add the 300ml of water and place the pot over a high heat. Bring to the boil, cover with a lid and turn down to the lowest heat possible
10.
Cook for 12 minutes, or until the rice is just cooked. Remove from the heat and allow to stand, covered, for 2 minutes before serving
11.
Pierce the chicken and vegetables onto the skewers. Each skewer should hold 4 pieces each of the pepper and onion, and 3 pieces of the chicken - alternate as you thread them onto skewers
12.
Cook the skewers under the grill or on a barbecue until the meat is nicely charred, approximately 3-4 minutes on each side
13.
Lay the tortillas onto plates. Remove the meat and vegetables from the skewers and use to fill the wraps along with some rice
Back to school
Teach your little ones how to wrap the fajitas. Once the chicken and vegetables sit on top, fold the bottom third up, then wrap both the sides in to make a parcel
14.
Garnish the fajitas with the flavoured sour cream and serve immediately
