|FAJITAS-- 10 MINUTES PREP, 15 -20 MINUTES TO COOK|
It was a great day! I had to give my body a little break from working out and doing any cardio today. I spent a good part of the day working on an outline for the book I'm wanting to write, studying and working on programs for 2 new clients. It takes a little time putting together individual programs. But keeping in mind everyone has different challenges, and it's important that I be mindful in helping my clients learn to eat well AND stay healthy while losing fat and putting on muscle is top on my priority list. Food is obviously a big challenge for most people and I know everyone wants to eat well, but sometimes we lack the creativity and know how of what to do. There are times I love to cook and spend hours in the kitchen getting a Sunday dinner together for the family and then there are times I'll just eat a simple grilled chicken breast with veggies and a sweet potato. But there is one thing this chica can not live without....and that's
Mexican food!! It's definitely a favorite in our house. Although Mother Hubbard's Cupboard were kinda bare, I managed to whipped up these fajitas fairly quick with minimal ingredients. They were a big hit!
*slice a variety if Peppers ( I used one red, yellow and orange pepper)
*slice 1 small to medium Onion
*thin to medium slice 4 small Chicken Breasts
( Perdue from Costco- fit & easy all natural is what I use)
*2 TBSP of light premium Olive Oil
* Alexander's Gourmet Blends 4 in1 herbs
(I used a combo of the Cajun Seasonings-- 1 tsp
1 TBSP Char Grill 'n Broil Spices & Herbs)
Or more depending on your palate.
*Garlic Powder, Onion Powder and Salt to taste
*White Girl Hot Salsa ( my new favorite find from Whole Foods!)
Heat 2 TBSP of Olive Oil in a stainless steel pan ( gets hotter than a nonstick pan)
Add the chicken and season with Alexander's Blend of Char Grill 'n Broil and a pinch of salt. Saute the chicken until it is cooked about a third of the way done. Add the peppers, onions and the Cajun Seasoning ( you might want to add more depending on the flavor you are looking for) Sprinkle with Garlic Powder and Onion Powder. Keep sauteing the chicken and veggies until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the veggies still have a bit of crunch. (about 5 minutes)
Lightly spray your corn tortillas with Olive Oil cooking spray and grill or heat in a pan. Top with your favorite salsa or homemade pico di gallo, some avocado and a squeeze of fresh lime.
We didn't have any avocado or stuff for homemade pico, but they were delicious anyway!
