  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet. Caramelize the onion on medium high, stirring occasionally. Add a little water if the onion tends to brown too quickly.
  2. Add the red pepper strips and continue cooking until the vegetables are cooked, but still slightly crunchy. Set aside on a plate.
  3. In the same skillet, cook the chicken strips. Put the vegetables back in the skillet. Add salt, pepper and spices. Continue cooking for about 1 minutes so that the spices can release their flavour.
  4. To assemble the fajitas: put the chicken and julienned cucumber filling in the hollow of a lettuce leaf, then sprinkle with cheese. Then roll up and serve immediately (2 rolls per person).
