Cheaters Handbook: Chicken Fajitas

How convenient that one of my favourite suppers also just happens to be super fast, easy, and can be made even easier with a little help from my Cheaters Handbook! Chicken fajitas are already very easy to prepare when cooking your own chicken as a filling, but it is made all the more easier when you purchase precooked, sliced, boneless skinless chicken breasts from your grocery store.

Yes, it's true that the flavour can be amped up to amazing levels when preparing your own chicken, but for someone like me who is always on the run, it's good to have a quick and easy alternative to cooking. Precooked boneless skinless chicken breasts can be stored in the fridge, ready to be added to any sandwich, salad, or tortilla. Despite taking the shortcut of using precooked chicken, you can still add loads of personality and flavour to your fajita by raiding your fridge for fillings. You can also easily prepare some special fillings in advance that you can store in the fridge until serving. Try sauteing some chopped onions with jalapeno peppers. Or how about throwing some bell peppers on the barbeque to roast. See what you have on hand and play! The options are endless!
Tip: To heat your flour tortillas, wrap them in tin foil and bake in the oven or toaster oven for 5-7 min

Suggested Fillings:
  • Sliced chicken
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Monterey jack cheese
