Easy chicken fajitas that you can put together any night of the week in under half an hour.
One of my favorite meals ever is chicken fajitas. This is a dish I learned to make a long time ago when I first lived on my own. It’s very easy to make and it’s a dish full of flavor. I would also say it is healthy, because of the ingredients.
Fajitas is a Spanish term and it usually refers to a grilled meat served in a taco or a flour corn tortilla. So you can literally make these fajitas with any meat you like. However, chicken fajitas are my favorite. So since it usually refers to a grilled meat, you can grill the chicken breasts then cut them up in thin strips and pile them up on your tortillas. However, since it’s the middle of the winter, we don’t grill as much now. So for these fajitas I used about 3 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless. Slice them up in thin and long strips and wipe them dry. At this time you can also get your red pepper and green pepper sliced and the onion sliced as well. Because I wanted a little kick to my fajitas, I also chopped up a jalapeno pepper, but feel free to skip this.
