A fusion of Mexican- Asian style Chicken Fajitas that are both easy and tasty!
Do you love chicken fajitas? I do. There's something about chicken, peppers, and onions wrapped in a tortilla that just makes me seriously hungry. This recipe is incredibly easy to make!
S, long time, no post. If you were unaware, I lost my marbles along with my health on our trip out west. So, long story short I'm okay but confused, worn out and in need of medical intervention. I'm hanging in there though and trying to keep my sense of humour about things. I'll fill you in more on the whole ordeal later this week. For now I'd like to turn your attention to Sunday Supper and our Mexican Fiesta.
Okay truth time. I am wicked sick so I did not do up the fajitas the way I had planned. I can barely stand upright folks. So I did an easy peasy, sorta Mexican- Asian type fajita this week. It is the best I could do on such limited energy. I took on too much this week, but did not want to let my Sunday Supper crew down since I had to bail last week due to the whole "hospital thing". So I powered through and this is my idea of Mexican when I'm tired and can't handle anything too spicy. So if you like watered down, Americanized Mexican food this is the dish for you. If you're looking for authentic, spicy Mexican food I'd suggest visiting the rest of the crew for inspiration. I'm sure they went above and beyond as they always do. This group rocks, and they cook up amazing food. So on with the food. Watered down and otherwise.
- 1 large White or Sweet Onion cut into thin strips
- 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
- 2 green peppers cut into thin strips
- 2 red peppers cut into thin strips
- 2 yellow peppers cut into think strips
- 2 tablespoons Stir fry Sauce such as General Tao's
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Cayenne Pepper to taste
- Red Pepper Flakes to taste
- 1 to 2 packages tortillas we used medium sized
- Cut up your onion into thin strips. Place in a frying or saute pan you've sprayed with non stick spray over medium-low heat and drizzle with olive oil. Let this cook for about 15 to 20 minutes while you cut up and cook the other ingredients. You want them almost caramelized before you add the next ingredient. Stir every few minutes and add extra olive oil if you find it getting too dry or sticking to the pan.
- Cut up your chicken into thin strips, place in a separate frying pan or saute pan you've sprayed with non stick spray, and cook over medium heat until almost brown. Stir it often. Mine took about 10 to 12 minutes but I like mine quick crispy so feel free to reduce cook time to 8 to 10 minutes if you like. Once it's almost cooked add the stir fry sauce and stir often. Then you can add the spices to taste.
- While the chicken is cooking you can cut up your peppers and set them aside until the onions are almost caramelized. Once those onions are just starting to turn golden toss the peppers into the same pan as the onions. Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes more depending how you like your peppers. I like mine just starting to soften with a touch of crunch right in the middle. It's all about personal preference with cooking. Feel free to sort of ad lib when cooking. There's no right or wrong way.
- Once everything is cooked, toss some fajitas into the microwave for a few seconds to soften them up, then pop some chicken and some peppers and onions into them. You can jazz yours up with whatever you like. I kept mine mild.
- Serve with a big old "I need to lie down now" smile!
Hope you like it. This really is a simple dish and easy on the taste buds for those less daring. So this would be good for kids for sure. Plus it's easy peasy and cooks up quick. Save some time by using some leftover cooked chicken or buy a rotisserie chicken from the store. If I had thought of that, (remember I'm on LOTS of drugs right now) I would have just heated up a pre-cooked chicken from the store to be perfectly honest.

Mexican is always my fall back plan when I'm not sure what to make for dinner:) Tonight it's chilli con carne... Love your fajitas.
Oh yum, I love chili. It's just so homey and comforting.
Thanks so much. xx
I happen to love watered down, Americanized Mexican food so this definitely works for me. I'm glad you're doing a bit better now, twin. And glad you're back! *hugs and sloppy kisses*

Thanks Sarah. I am so sorry about your son having surgery. Hope all is well.

Oh Kim! I really hope you are feeling better soon. It's hard to be sick on top of everything you have to do, and yet you still make this delicious food. I've been so busy that I read you are sick on facebook but didn't know it was so bad! Omg, I hope this is not serious. I need the update of what you are talking about in your next post. Please, please do rest. Sending you big hugs and energy to your way... xo
I hope you feel better too! Fajitas will always work in our house. We'll eat just about anything stuffed inside of tortillas!
I'm just glad you are getting better! Kudos to you for finding the energy to still participate. I make fajitas quite often because it's so easy to throw together after a long day.
Doesn't sound good, hope you're OK.
Fajitas look great though...
hope you feel better soon hun! i know how tiring it is to cook when you are sick but it was unbelievably awesome of you to make and share these fajitas. they look delicious!
I do hope you recover quickly. It sounds like you've had a very rough week. Amazing how, as unwell as you've been, you've managed to present a really healthy and delicious looking Mexican/American dish - your fajitas look very yummy xx
