Method:
Chicken –
Place chicken breast in a small saucepan covered with water. Bring to boil and simmer covered for 45 minutes. When ready, leave to cool till you can touch it by hand and chop it into bite sized pieces (cooking it this way makes the breast juicy and tender).

While the pasta is cooking, mix the sour cream, single cream, fajita sauce, cumin, garlic and onion powder in a bowl.
Spray a baking dish and place the cooked pasta. Stir in the the sauce then add the chicken, sweetcorn, kidney beans, peppers and half the grated cheese last. Top with remaining cheese, freshly ground pepper. Cover with foil and bake in preheated oven 190C/375F for 30 minutes. Remove foil and cook for a further 15 minutes or until cheese on top has melted.
Garnish with sliced spring onions, diced tomatoes and sliced avocado.
Enjoy!
