Chicken Fajita
That's a Wrap Chicken Fajita

Maybe not a true fajita (since I'm not overly fond of cumin), but good nonetheless.  Feel free to add fajita seasoning if you wish.

This was a "fun with leftovers" deal.  I had some red & green bell peppers left over from my torta experiment.  I was also trying to work down my freezer this week, so for Tuesday's dinner, it was breaded and baked boneless chicken thighs.  So I combined the peppers and the chicken and put it in a flour tortilla (you can use naan too) and came up with tonight's dinner.

That's A Wrap Chicken "Fajita"

  •  1 flour tortilla
  • 1/4 cup julienne red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup julienne green bell pepper
  • 2 tbs sliced onion (I sliced thick)
  • 2 oz of any leftover chicken*
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • pinch of dried basil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet.  Add peppers & onions and cook only until onion is translucent and peppers are still brightly colored.  Add leftover chicken and heat through.

Place mixture in a flour tortilla (or Naan), fold and serve.  Serves 1

*My chicken was prepared using the Basic Coating Mix on this blog.  You can use ANY leftover meat.  It doesn't have to be chicken.  Get creative!!!
