Make: Baked Chicken Fajitas

Are you wanting the easiest weeknight meal in all the land?
An entire meal that requires only ONE dish... a meal that is ready in 30 minutes from start to finish?
Well you're in luck because I'm gonna share a favorite staple dinner that we consume often.

Baked Chicken Fajitas

The recipe originates from one of my most favorite cookbooks ever, Taste of Homes Most Requested Recipes, circa 2011.
Seriously, this cookbook is loaded with yummy, practical recipes that we make again & again.

You can find the original recipe here (or in the book below), but I'll share my tips to make this recipe even more easy.






























The recipe calls for one onion, one green pepper & one red pepper, but I've found this lovely melody in the freezer section at the grocery store which has everything you need & is already prepared.






























Once your chicken breasts are diced (1 lb. worth of them), throw them in your baking dish, add 1 can of diced tomatoes, add veggie blend, & drizzle with 2 tablespoons of oil (I use extra virgin olive oil).

Then add your spices (2 t. chili powder, 2 t. ground cumin, & salt to taste) -- stir it all together so everything is evenly coated & bake uncovered for 20-25 mins. (or until chicken is no longer pink & veggies are tender) at 400°. 

*I like to add a little seasoned salt, pepper, & crushed red pepper flakes for extra flavor.






























Wha-laa, it's that easy!






























Enjoy with your favorite fixins', wrapped up in a tortilla shell.
