Saying I LOVE mexican food is an understatement, but I don’t make it often as my husband isn’t a huge fan of it. He can’t resist a good fajita though, and when I across this recipe a few months ago, it became our top “Mexican dinner” recipe. I love it because you throw all the ingredients together and bake! Simple as that. I mean really, you can’t mess it up. It is so good and EASY and can be healthy (if you don’t doll it up with goodies). BONUS: It makes for great breakfast burritos the next morning; just add scrambled eggs!
What you’ll need:
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 4 oz. can diced green chilies
1 medium onion, sliced
1 large bell pepper, seeded and sliced
2 Tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
What you’ll do:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Grease a 13×9 baking dish
Mix together chicken, tomatoes, chilies, peppers, and onions in the dish
In a small bowl combine the oil and spices
Drizzle the spice mixture over the chicken and toss to coat
Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender
I love that you can use or add whatever veggies you have! I like to add mushrooms and jalapeño’s.
