One pan Chicken Fajitas

Here is how I make fajitas.  It is pretty simple and fairly healthy (I think).

1 large chicken breast
1 sweet pepper (any colour)
1 small onion
4-5 white mushrooms
1 can black beans
1/2 cup salsa
4 tbsp chili powder
3-4 cloves fresh garlic
2 tbsp cooking oil
2 cups diced lettuce
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6-8 12″ soft tortillas
salsa
sour ceram

Turn your oven onto about 200F.  Throw your tortillas onto a baking sheet and let them get warm in the oven.

Cut your chicken into long strips and throw into a large frying pan (I use my wok) with the oil over medium high heat.  Cook until chicken is just about brown.  Add the garlic, chili powder and 1/2 cup of salsa to the chicken and let the chicken finish cooking.  Please note always make sure your chicken is fully cooked before adding your veggies.  Another helpful and healthy tip is that if your chicken starts to stick to the pan, don’t add more oil, instead add a little water to the pan, the chicken should un-stick quickly.

While the chicken is cooking, dice the pepper, onion and mushrooms.  Cut the veggies into long strips to match the chicken.  Once the chicken is cooked, throw in the veggies.  Once the veggies start to soften, drain and add the black beans.  Once the beans are warm, remove the fajita fill from the stove.

Remove the warm tortillas and you are ready to eat.  The nice thing about fajitas is that everyone builds their own.  Just have them spoon some fill onto a tortilla, throw on some cheese, salsa, lettuce and sour cream, and then roll.  They are a one pan meal that combines your meat, veg and side all into one.  If you want to add something else you can’t go wrong with chips and fresh cut salsa or maybe some mexi-rice.
