Now fill the pocket 2/3 full with mixture. Rub the flour paste around the edge and press together to form a seal.

You can then fry the chicken fajita triangles in hot vegetable oil. I found that they only took around 20-25 seconds on each side. I flipped them over using a metal spatula. Make sure it isn’t damp when you use it or you will almost burn your house down! Speaking from experience there.
