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.


Simple Chicken Fajitas Recipe


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
  • onions
  • chili powder
  • cumin
  • organic season salt
  • pepper
  • 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.


Homemade Chicken Fajitas

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.
