Chicken Fajitas {Recipe}

The other night my husband and I were stuck on what to eat. I’m sure you know the feeling! You’ve got some food in the fridge, but nothing really prepared… and no leftovers (I LOVE leftovers!) I knew I had some chicken breast in the freezer and some peppers and onions, so I decided to whip up chicken fajitas! I’m a huge fan of making dinners that take less than 30 minutes to prepare. I don’t like “slaving” over food for hours only to eat it in 10 minutes. Many of the meals we make are quick and simple, like this one.

I started by slicing a red pepper, an orange pepper, an onion, and some mushrooms. I placed these in a frying pan with some grape seed oil. (Grape seed oil is great for frying because it has a higher smoke point than olive oil).

While that was frying, I “fired up” my indoor grill and started cooking my frozen chicken breast. With everything cooking, I quickly put together a homemade fajita seasoning.

I used some for my meal of course and the rest I put in a small glass “jam” jar.

By now my chicken was ready, so I sliced it up and added it to the veggies. Since the chicken was already cooked, I just tossed it around in the pan so the fajita seasoning would get on it and a few minutes later it was ready to eat! YUM!

I had mine in a lettuce wrap with my homemade spicy salsa and some homemade guacamole, while my husband used a whole grain wrap.

  • This is a recent favourite of ours. We have been making them with your suggestion of homemade whole wheat tortillas. I also do homemade guacamole and salsa. Yum!

      Jenn,

      Sounds delicious!! I’ve been thinking it would be really easy to prep a few meals and freeze in individual baggies. Stayed tuned for a blog post on it in the future. :)
