So you know I have been working out lately and trying to eat as healthy as possible by eating real food. One thing I cooked this week was a Simple Chicken Fajitas Recipe. Its pretty much a homemade Chicken Fajitas Recipe that I like to do on my own. I tend to cook a lot of things from scratch and make them at home since they always taste a whole lot better.
Its pretty simple to make and its one of the meals my family loves to eat, I tend to make it a variety of ways. Sometimes I'll grill the chicken and than slice the chicken tenderloins. I would grill the onions and peppers on my electric grill like the one here.
However, that night I did not have much time. So I decided to whip up some easy chicken fajitas in my favorite Cast Iron Skillet.
It just makes food taste so much better! -;)
Especially since Cast Iron Skillets help to even out the heat a lot better throughout the food giving it a even cooking time.
Some of the ingredients I used were:
- Chicken tenderloins
- red, green bell peppers
- I use homemade bought Tortillas the flour ones.
- Mexican Cheese ( I use and Organic Blended Brand)
- Sour Cream
- chili powder
- organic season salt
- garlic powder
The first thing I did was cut up my chicken tenderloins into small bite size strips buy cutting them lengthwise down. Than I sauteed the onions and peppers in the skillet with olive oil until they caramelize to a nice soft texture. I sprinkle on the seasonings also to the peppers so they can have nice rich flavor to them.
Next, I remove the peppers to a serving plate and than I cook the chicken in the skillet next with the chili powder, cumin, seasonings etc… . I grill them until they have nice brown outer covering and are done but not dried out. You want the chicken nice and grilled but not dry.
Next, I transfer the chicken to the serving plate too.
I heat the tortillas in the oven for about 3-5 minutes and than I get out the cheese and serve to the kids with a little sour cream. Fast and simple easy chicken fajitas recipe in less than about 30 minutes.
Like I said before This is one my favorite dinners to cook the kids on nights that I't really busy and I don't have to much time to cook without having to resort to getting take out or running to the store.
