These Quick & Easy Chicken Fajitas are perfect for lunch, dinner or anytime you want a healthy meal! Simple and delicious, anyone can make these fajitas!
They really are that easy.
You can do the whole process in one frying pan or if you are super fancy get yourself one of those fajita dishes that sizzle when they serve them at restaurants. I found one that comes with the mini oven mitt too, you can pick that up from Amazon for under $15 by clicking here.
These fajitas can be made in any frying pan but I have always wanted one of those pans and for that price, I may have to pick one up anyway. Plus it comes with the oven mitt. It won’t even take up much space for storage but if you want a pan you can use again and again, this standard frying pan is best.
Every time I order fajitas at a restaurant, I get kind of annoyed because it draws so much attention to my table when the waitress brings that violently loud dish out. Everyone breaks their necks to see what I assume they think is a fire as the waitress strolls past them and then they bring it to me, which is just one more reason for them to stare. If you are just tuning into my blog for the first time and have yet to hear one of my rants about people staring, let me fill you in.
For some reason, completely unbeknownst to myself, ever since moving to Iowa, everywhere I go, people stare at me. For no good reason, I swear. I am a normal person with no attention-grabbing tendencies or weird eye-catching looks. I dress plain, I act plain, I do not deserve or desire attention in any way. In fact, I loathe it. I see it as judgment and it angers me. I associate it with negativity because while growing up in New Jersey, it was rude to stare, but I have no idea why they do it and I can not avoid it.
My husband always tells me to see it as a compliment, like they think I am so breathtakingly beautiful that they have to stare. So instead of saying something really snarky to them or flipping every single one of them off every time they stare, I try to see it that way. I must be gorgeous. No matter how many chicken fajitas I eat. I just need to limit the times I order this attention-grabbing dish and make my own chicken fajitas at home from now on.
I wasn’t kidding when I said that anyone could make these fajitas, they really are the easiest chicken fajitas I have ever made. Plus they are delicious and super-fast, too.
The first step is to warm a pan and add in a little bit of olive oil to coat the pan. Chop up the vegetables to whatever size you want, I always go for bite-sized pieces but you can make them any way that you want. Feel free to make them that weird swirly shape that the restaurants do for some reason.
Cook the vegetables until they are soft, this usually takes about 5-7 minutes, depending on the size of your pieces and how thoroughly you warmed your pan. Set them aside and then use the pan to cut your chicken, also cut to your desired size.
Cook the chicken until it is white and cooked all the way through. I always say it is better to overcook chicken than undercook it but you may not feel that way, this process should not take any longer than ten minutes.
Once the chicken is cooked all the way through, add the vegetables back to the pan and season. Stir everything together and cook for a couple of more minutes to make sure that your chicken fajitas are so hot that everyone breaks their neck to look at your beautiful creation as you walk by with it.
