Chicken Fajitas

At the end of the day I had four mouths to feed and limited time to put it together so I kept it simple. Four chicken breasts were salted and seasoned with Cajun spice, brushed with oil, then BBQ'd to almost done. Let cool. Dice an onion and caramelize. Add clove or two of diced garlic and sweat. Add diced green pepper and diced celery stick, sweat. Add small teaspoon chicken stock powder, a heaping tablespoon of taco seasoning, cook briefly. Add 1/2 cup water and turn up heat to reduce liquid. Slice the breasts up lengthwise and add to the pan when the liquid is almost gone. Heat the meat up and finish cooking it if necessary. Spoon meat mixture onto warm taco shell and roll up. Spread sour cream over top. Top with Salsa and plate refried beans beside.


3 tomatoes
1 jalapeno pepper
3 green onions
1/2 lime juiced
1 tbsp chopped parsley or cilantro
black pepper

Dice tomatoes, jalapeno and onions. Toss all ingredients and serve.

Refried Beans

1 can Old El Paso Refried Beans - they're worth the extra money
1/2 lime juiced
1 tbsp sour cream

Reheat in a pot, add lime and cream, serve.

The combination of Cajun spice on the chicken and Taco seasoning in the pan went over really well. Everyone remarked that the dish tasted phenomenal. It was a smaller plate than I usually put out but everyone had enough to eat so maybe I'm over feeding us a bit.
