Chicken Fajitas

So here's another recipe I tried that is scrumptious! (Hubby also loved- as you can see...he's pretty easy to please.) Ok, Oven Bakes Chicken Fajitas! These were wonderful, I also made my own tortillas because I forgot to buy them at the store..let me tell ya- home made ones are like 10 times better than store bought. Anyway here it is


1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1 tomato cut up in chunks
1 4.5 oz can of Old El Paso Green Chilies
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 green pepper, seeded and sliced
1/2 red pepper, seeded and sliced
12 tortillas
Toppings: cheese, sour cream, guacamole  rice etc


Preheat oven to 400 degrees, place chicken strips in a greased 13x9 baking dish.
In a small bowl combine the oil, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, oregano, and salt.
Drizzle the spice mix over the chicken and stir to coat.
Next add the tomatoes, chilies, peppers, and onions to the dish.
Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and veggies are tender.
Add toppings desired and enjoy

I don't like sour cream or guacamole but the cheese and yummy! It was more like a burrito at that point but who cares right?! Mexican food is amazing! My husband LOVES guacamole more than his life
(not really but he does like it alot!) This is also takes very little time to put together- so for you moms out there that have far more hectic lives than I do..this recipe is a real keeper- Unless of course your family doesn't like Mexican and if that's the case...just check out my other recipes lol
