Chicken Fajitas for Dinner and Lunch


The other night, I wanted to make some chicken fajitas using some fresh chicken I had just bought from The Meat House (it was my first visit and now I'm hooked! The fresh chicken was so tender and the best I've ever had!) without using a store-bought seasoning packet. I also wanted a recipe that didn't require lime juice, since I didn't have any on-hand, so I ended up using Taste of Home's Chicken Fajita Recipe and was really happy with the way they turned out. The chicken was incredibly tender and the favor was just right - not too overpowering yet not too bland. Big Sis has never been a huge fan of them, but she ate most of hers, which says a lot! The rest of us, Daddy, Littls Sis and myself gobbled ours up.


One of my favorite things about fajitas is LEFTOVERS! Always make enough for leftovers! They make great quick and easy lunches, especially when I'm on the go. Here's how I layered mine today.


And voila!


I packed 'em up with a few sides in my Easylunchbox and headed off to have lunch with Big Sis at school and enjoyed every bite. Needless to say, I was a hungry girl and brought home my lunchbox empty. :)
