Lazy Chicken Fajita Mix

So, I finally cooked. But it was really lazy. How lazy was it? So lazy, that I used chicken tenders from Loblaws and a pre-washed and pre-cut Fajita mix. Yes. I’m cheating a little. But this meal was delicious, healthy and took minutes to prepare.

I even managed to clean the kitchen while it was cooking. Bonus!

PRO TIP: wash dishes in between preparing ingredients for your meal. Empty the dishwasher, or load it up while waiting for your dinner to cook. This will cut your cleaning time in half!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of pre-cooked chicken
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1/2 purple or red onion
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • A few drops of lemon juice
  • Spices: salt, black pepper

Preparation (fixed – lol)

  • Cut all the vegetables into smaller 1″ sized pieces. Heat up a skillet using medium heat on your stove top. Add in the olive oil. Add in the onions and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Add in the rest of the vegetables and mix with a wooden spoon. You can add some more seasoning or sauce here – I just added a few drops of lemon juice and it really brought out the flavour of the vegetables.
  • Cook for 5-10 minutes or until vegetables have reached desired tenderness. I like mine a little crunchy.

You can eat this on its own or serve with a bed of rice or fries. I only used half of my Fajita mix and I’ll have lots leftover for tomorrow’s dinner.

PRO TIP 2: To add more spices to this mix, you can use chili or red pepper flakes. Or you can add some tomato sauce and use this as a taco filling.

Enjoy.

    Prepararation… ha ha ha 🙂 I know its typo but I don’t why it cracked me up so much 🙂 This is my cooking style which you described on here. I’d love to add some of my own choice of spices which I’m sure make it sizzling hot and totally yummy to eat.

    My bad. This is what lack of sleep does haha. I’ll fix it. I use a lot of the same spices like black pepper, basil and oregano.

    Wish I was your neighbor and we could exchange each other’s cooked food like we used to do in our neighborhood when young and my mom used to send me over to our neighbors to exchange whatever she and her neighbor cooked. Things are so different today… so anti-social I suppose! Anyways hope is there for a vaccine to fix the entire world someday. Here’s to your delicious cooking! 🌹👍👏

    Definitely anti-social. I hate my neighbours here lol! They’re all very loud and inconsiderate except for the older dude across the hall. We are the old folks of the building who complain about the young ones haha.
