15-Minute Chicken Fajitas

Some weekdays I get home from work and just don’t have it in me to prepare a meal. But, on those days I also realize that the amount of time it would take me to wait for a delivery meal, I could have a much healthier and easier option at my fingertips. That’s when these 15-minute chicken fajitas come into play! I buy precut fajita veggies, a simmer sauce, and stir fry chicken to make this meal SO easy and SO good! This semi-homemade meal will be sure to please everyone while giving you your night back!

Ingredients

1 yellow onion, cut into strips

1 green bell pepper, cut into strips

1 red bell pepper, cut into strips

1.5 lbs chicken breast (I bought the stir fry cut chicken to make it easier!)

1 package of Frontera Fajita Skillet Sauce with chipotle + lime

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste

Cumin to taste

8 flour tortillas

2 tbsp olive oil

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a skillet. Cook fajita veggies (onion, peppers) in the oil until they start to get a golden color (about 3-5 minutes).
  2. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and cumin, to taste.
  3. Remove the veggies from the skillet to rest on a plate. Add another 1 tbsp of oil. Add in chicken, in batches if needed. Cook through until fully browned and at an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  4. Remove chicken to a plate. Drain excess oil from the pan.
  5. Pour fajita sauce into skillet until it starts to boil. Add the cooked chicken and veggies back into the skillet. Combine until well coated by the sauce. Let simmer for 2-5 minutes on low.
  6. Serve with heated flour tortillas!
