Looking for a delicious and easy weeknight meal? This Simple Chicken Fajita recipe ought to do the trick. With just a bit of slicing and and a few minutes over the heat you can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.
This is one of my go to weeknight meals, it’s the perfect meal for those nights when I just don’t feel like being in the kitchen. I actually serve it a few times a month, I just change up the protein so that the family doesn’t feel like I’m serving the same thing over and over again.
This is a pretty simple recipe, it uses both fresh ingredients and processed ingredients. I use the processed ingredients to cut down on the time spent in the kitchen. When I’m feeling a little more chef-y and have the time I’ll mix up my own fajita mix or make my own flour tortillas to avoid the processed versions.
