What’s for dinner? Hmmmm. Has to be carb-friendly for DH. Has to be something Mr16 will like. Has to be quick. I have chicken, peppers, and onions….Fajitas! Fantastico!
Gather up the chicken, peppers, onions and some spices, and you too can be eating Fajitas Fantastico in a flash!
Olive oil for sauteing chicken and veggies
1 1/2 pounds of chicken (cuts of your choice)
2 bell peppers, one green, one red
1-2 jalepenos (Adjust according to how spicy you want the fajitas. Removing the seeds will tone down the heat even more.)
2 medium yellow onions
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Place a large fry pan over medium high heat. Add a TBSP olive oil. While pan heats, slice chicken into 1/4 inch thick slices. Safety note: Always wash your hands carefully before and after handling raw meat. Be sure your knife is sharp. Use a cutting board dedicated for raw meat–preferably one that can be washed in the dishwasher.
Distribute chicken in the pan, and season with salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, chili powder and oregano. Saute, stirring occasionally.
While chicken cooks, slice the peppers and onions, mince the jalepenos.
When chicken is cooked through–no longer pink, remove it from the pan, set aside. Add veggies into the pan, separating the onion slices into half rings. Saute until they start to caramelize (brown).
When veggies are as browned as you like, add the chicken back to the pan and mix into the veggies. (Feel free to leave the veggies a bit crunchy, or cook them until soft, or somewhere in between–your personal preference.)
You’ve got Fajitas! Fantastico! Place your fajitas into the tortilla or wrap of your choice, add whatever toppings you like and enjoy! Makes enough for 4-6.
I put pesto in mine! I would have never thought of that, but a worker at a local Qdoba recommended adding pesto to my last burrito there. It was a delicious combination! I also added avocado, cheese, tomatillo salsa, and sour cream. Try these fajitas for a fast and yummy dinner!
