Delicious Chicken Fajitas The Whole Family Will Love!

Delicious Chicken Fajitas The Whole Family Will Love!

An easy idea for a healthy weeknight meal is chicken fajitas.  You can control the ingredients and add as many veggies as you like.  Of course, if you don’t like chicken, feel free to substitute lean beef.  We have this meal pretty regularly around here.  You can prep the night before and then it comes together in a flash when you’ve got hungry peeps waiting on food.

Do yourself a favor and cut up the veggies, grate the cheese, and get your chicken marinating the night before.  It gives the chicken amazing flavor after soaking in all that yummy goodness all night.  But don’t fret – I’ve made this one after marinating for only a few hours and it still turned out just fine!

Chicken Fajitas

You can substitute whatever veggies you like, separate the chicken and make a batch without the cayenne pepper for the kiddos if they don’t like the heat, or even use beef or pork if you prefer. This recipe is so adaptable.  

I also regularly leave off the tortillas and just eat the chicken, peppers, and other veggies with some salsa. This will cut down on the amount of carbs if you’re trying to go lower carb.
