Chicken Fajitas

As the year is going into full swing with school, piano lessons, and sports I have needed too figure out a way to still balance keeping up with the house and making dinners.  My goal is to prepare at least 15 items a month before making any repeats.  For my family this works out really well because we inevitably end up going to family's/friends' homes for dinner at least once on the weekend, we go out to dinner on Friday nights, and often have enough food from one of the previous meals that I prepared for left overs at least once a week--so realistically I will only be preparing something new four times a week!  I can do that!! Here is what we had for dinner last night:

1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 green bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 orange bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 sweet yellow onion
1 lime
1 lemon
a pinch of garlic salt


  1. Cut the chicken into strips or cubes about 1 inch thick and 3 inches long.  
  2. Place chicken inside of 1 gallon Ziplock bag.
  3. Cut all of the bell peppers and onion into strips.  Add to Ziplock bag.
  4. Cut the lemon and the lime into thirds, squeeze 1/3 of the lemon  and the lime into the bag (I also zest the skin of the citrus for added flavor)
  5. Add garlic salt to bag, close bag and shake everything up. Let sit in fridge for at least one hour.
  6. Once ready you can prepare your fajitas in the oven at 350 for 40 minutes, on the skillet on low-medium heat, or on the grill.  I personally prepare mine on the grill anytime the weather permits, I also use a Grill Mat!  It has been one of my favorite purchases.
  7. Once done, heat up the tortillas and serve.  Garnish with the remaining citrus, and black beans if preferred.
***I will usually cut up some lettuce, tomato, and avocado and serve with the meal.****
This is such an easy meal and is a great change up to typical baked chicken (at least in my house!)
