In the Kitchen: Easy chicken fajitas

Since I haven't been blogging in awhile, I have tons of recipes stockpiled that I want to share with you guys! First up is a really simple chicken fajitas meal that's become a favorite of mine. The directions for this are probably a no brainer for most cooks, but it's so delicious I still thought I would share!

Ingredients:
- Chicken breast tenders (your choice on the amount)
- Bell peppers cut into thin slices
- Onion sliced
- Spices; ground pepper, chili powder, Jane's Crazy Salt, cajun spice mix
- One chipotle pepper in it's own juice
- One lime
- Whole wheat flour tortillas
- Shredded cheese
- Tomatoes (optional)
- Guacamole and sour cream (optional)
- Olive oil  


Preparation:
First get the peppers cooking with a little bit of olive oil. Next you can make the guacamole to set aside, I just use a seasoning packet and add a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

Next, take the chicken out and season it with all the spices mentioned above. This isn't an exact science, so feel free to add other spices that you love. For me, the key to the chicken is using the already cut up chicken breast tenders. The small size makes them so juicy and delicious! Heat up a pan to cook the chicken and throw in some olive oil, fresh squeezed lime juice and one chipotle pepper cut up and a little of the juice from the can.



Now throw the chicken in the pan. Once it's in the pan, squeeze more lime juice onto each piece. Let it cook for about 10 minutes, turning a few times.


When the peppers & onion and chicken are close to being done, warm up your tortillas. I've recently made the switch to a true whole wheat variety, and I haven't even missed the white flour much! You can also get out all your toppings, I used shredded cheese, cherry tomatoes and a little sour cream and of course lots of guac!

Shred the chicken into small pieces and assemble the fajitas. YUM! These are so easy and so good! Let me know if you guys like them :)
