Yesterday was definitely an “I’m craving a little Mexican food” day.
I’ve been in a bit of a funk, stressing over starting the new job, so I decided to whip up some comfort food. Fajitas? Comfort food?
I knew I did not want to use fajita seasoning from a pouch, so I hit up Pinterest to see what I could find.
Here’s what I came up with!
Oven baked chicken fajitas!
*1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast , trimmed into 1 inch strips
(I always look for no hormone, no steroid, all natural chicken breasts)
*1 each green, yellow, red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
*1 medium onion, sliced
*1 15oz can organic diced tomatoes
*1 4 oz can chopped green chilies (optional)
*2 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
*2 teaspoons chili powder
*2 teaspoons cumin
*1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
*1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
*1/4 teaspoon salt (I used Pink Himalayan salt)
*1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
*12 tortillas, warmed to serve
*Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
*Grease a 13×9 baking dish, or spray with cooking spray
*In a small bowl combine the oil and spices. Pour spice mixture over the chicken and toss to coat.
*Then decide it probably needs more garlic because, well, what doesn’t? And add two cloves chopped garlic and toss mixture again
*Optional at this point to cover and refrigerate for 30 min to 1 hour so everything can get happy together. I did, and you won’t regret it!
I will likely marinate the chicken alone overnight next time, because that’s how I roll. That, and because these fajitas were even tastier for lunch today..the getting happy together thing is key!
*Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
*Serve with warmed tortillas or open face on top of a bed of prepared quinoa, which I highly recommend! Enjoy!
Recipe adapted from this one!
And to balance out all the yummy goodness of a recipe, here’s what my workouts have looked like this week!
Ugh, I WAS NOT feeling it today. Been a long time since I’ve had a run I just wasn’t into! I was ready to call it quits before the first mile.
Tomorrow I’m aiming for T25 either alpha ab intervals, or beta dynamic core…I’ll sleep on it!
Then hoping to take a little road trip with the hubs this weekend to
get some new running shoes go to Fleet Farm. He’s had a gift card burning a hole in his pocket since Christmas!
I’m guessing no.
Favorite running shoe?
I’ve loved my Saucony Cohesion 6’s, but sooo want to give the Mizuno Wave Sayonara’s a try!
