Quick Chicken Fajitas

So technically this is a late post because we had these for dinner yesterday, but I did blog the Skinny Burrito Bowls which makes up for quantity in the blog department. And it’s a Tuesday so the timing is great for that as well. Fajitas are taco’s cousins. 

Quick Chicken Fajitas


  • 3 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 3 chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 1 medium onion, cut into thin strips
  • red bell pepper, cut into thin strips

  1. In a small bowl, add 1 tbsp olive oil, juice of half a lime and spices. Mix well before adding chicken in bowl as well to coat.
