Chicken Fajita Stir-Fry is made with chicken breast, bell peppers, onions, lime juice, and seasonings for an easy dinner any time of the week.
Chicken fajita stir-fry is packed with flavor and serve with tortilla, rice, or even cauliflower rice for fewer carbs.
There was a Mexican restaurant in our town for many years that Mike and I would go to every once in a while. The only thing that we ever ordered at this restaurant was the chicken fajitas. We were in love with this item on the menu and never bothered to think about ordering anything else.
Then a few years ago they sold the restaurant and the restaurant changed the name and the menu. Yes, they still had chicken fajitas on the menu, but they were not the same as the one we fell in love with.
I think we went once and never returned. Kind of a sad thing.
Who knew that making fajitas at home would be so easy. It’s amazing how easy it is to make fajitas at home. All you need is a little time to marinate the meat, cut some vegetables and fry the whole thing up.
So easy and delicious.
What is a fajita?
A dish of Mexican origin made with strips of seasoned meat, slice vegetables, and usually the meat and vegetables are wrapped in a tortilla.
This time around I decided to skip the tortilla and serve it over cauliflower for fewer carbs. It was equally delicious.
