Chicken Fajitas Recipe (Better then Chili’s!) Less then 15 minutes from start to eating!

Thought I’d share a super fast, yummy recipe that has been a huge hit in my house!
Its super fast and from start to eating time will take you only 15 minutes!First take green and red peppers and cut them and throw them in a 2.5 qt dish that is microwave safe. Then add onion. I’m not that big of an onion fan so I add only half a large onion.
Sprinkle well with a Southwest spice mix. I use the Pampered Chef Southwest Seasoning Mix.
Take either a package of chicken tenders or cut 4 chicken breast in long strips. These I used are chicken breast cut because the grocery store was out of tenders.Shake the seasoning over the chicken well.
Look at those yummy spices!
Cover and put in microwave for 10 minutes on high!

I completely forgot to take an after pic because hubby and I were too hungry! Serve with fajita wraps & cheese. Add anything you like really! My favorite part is the only dish I have to clean is the one I cooked it in…which is SUPER easy to clean!These fajitas are sooooo good! I love Chili’s fajitas and these are even better! I don’t eat the onions and peppers when they serve them at the restaurant. I don’t like onions AT ALL! But I eat them in this ONE recipe.This is a Favorite recipe that both of us LOVE!

    I just made this tonight, and it’s in the microwave at this very moment. I’m really excited about it! It smells amazing. I took a peek inside around 6 minutes, and it looks delicious. Thank you so much!

    • Yay! Can’t wait to hear what you think! years later this recipe is still a family favorite!

        It was so good! Since my fiance is more of a fan of spice, I took a bit of a detour in terms of spice, but the result has been consistently delicious! I ended up using paprika, adobo, hot sauce, and black pepper to marinade the chicken, and tossed the concoction into a hamburger bun. I think you may have inspired a new staple in my diet as well! XD

  4. When/how do you microwave the vegetables? There are no instructions. Do you microwave them separately or do you put the uncooked chicken on top of the veggies and microwave all at the same time? I am wanting to use this in a high school cooking class and need explicit directions for them. Thanks.

  5. The instruction say to put the vegetables in a microwave dish. THe photo shows the vegs in a dish. The next instruction says to sprinkle the chicken with seasoning. The photos LOOK LIKE the vegs and chicken are in 2 different dishes. There are no instructions that say “microwave veggies first” nor “layer chicken on top of veggies.” Do the veggies and chicken get microwaved at the same time or at 2 different times. Since I want to use this in a high school class, believe me, I need to have explicit detail in the recipe. Thanks.
