Directions

  • OVEN-BAKED METHOD:
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients for the fajita seasoning in a bowl
  • and set aside.
  • Cut the onion and bell peppers into strips. Place them in a large 13x9 baking dish. Slice the
  • chicken breast into thin strips and add it to the baking dish with the vegetables.
  • Sprinkle the seasoning over the meat and vegetables. Drizzle the vegetable oil over
  • everything and then use your hands to toss the ingredients until they are well coated. Bake
  • for 35-40 minutes, stirring once half way through.
  • ALTERNATE SKILLET METHOD:
  • In a bowl, sprinkle fajita seasoning over the chicken and toss to coat the chicken.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp of vegetable oil over medium/medium-high heat, and add the chicken.
  • Saute the chicken for 7-10 minutes until its fully cooked and golden brown and slightly charred.
  • Remove chicken from skillet to rest on a plate.
  • Add the remaining Tbsp of vegetable oil to the skillet. Add the onion and peppers to the skillet and saute for about 5 minutes, until softened.
  • Add the chicken to the skillet, mix with peppers and onions and cook for about 1 minute.
  • TO MAKE THE QUESADILLAS:
  • Add a bit of butter or oil to a large skillet and heat over medium heat. Add 1 flour tortilla, sprinkle one half of the tortilla with a little cheese, then add a handful of cooked chicken fajitas, and top with another sprinkle of cheese.
  • Fold the other half over to create a half circle. Pat down with a spatula. Cook for a few minutes, until golden brown on the bottom.
  • Carefully flip the quesadilla over to cook the other side until golden brown. Remove to a plate, slice and serve.
  • Serve garnished with lime wedges and fresh cilantro.
  • Serve with whatever dips youd prefer.
