One Pan Oven Chicken Fajitas

I love fajitas and this is a super simple way to fix them. They are so good! I was very impressed with how good they turned out and we'll be making them often. These would be great for meal prep as well.

One Pan Oven Chicken Fajitas

2 pounds of chicken tenders
2 bell peppers, sliced into strips (any color will do, I chose green and yellow)
1 1/2 red onion, cut in half and then slice each half into strips
2 tablespoons of olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder
3/4 tsp cumin
dash of cayenne pepper
1 tsp of mexican oregano
1 tablespoon lime juice
salt to taste

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and place a large sheet pan in the oven to also be heating up while the oven is preheating. In a gallon sized ziploc bag, add chicken, peppers and onions. Next add the remaining ingredients. Seal the bag and squish it around, mixing all ingredients together well. Using an oven mitt, carefully remove the hot pan from the oven and empty the Ziplo…

Cookbook Review: Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook

I have heard so much about Trim Healthy Mama, so I was really excited to get a chance to review this cookbook. So many people seem to have great success with their healthy eating ideas so I knew I would want to check out their book.

The contents include: One-Pot Meals, Hearty Mains and Sides, Sunrise Eats, Sweet Treats, Beverages and All Things Smooth and Crunchy. The cookbook includes an intro that talks more about the plan. They include some discussion on portion sizes, kitchen tools you may find helpful and some special mention foods. The intro is super informative and gives you an idea of what to expect in recipes.

So many of the recipes sound yummy! There is Wicked White Chili, Buttah Chicken, Chicken Jalapeno Popper Soup and even some yummy homemade granola recipes! There are a few ingredients called for in a few recipes that I don't typically have in my kitchen. They address these in the intro under the special mention foods. So many have had great results with Trim He…

Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls

Need a quick, easy and delicious meal? This is it! It cooks in the slow cooker and makes enough for leftovers. This would be great to take for lunch and you could even meal prep with this and portion out in individual containers. This stuff is so good! Let's get started!

Slow Cooker Burrito Bowls

3 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I sometimes use tenders as well)
1 can of black bean (drained and rinsed)
1 can of Rotel
1.5 cups of corn (can use frozen, fresh off the cob or canned)
1 cup of salsa
1 tbsp of jarred jalapenos, diced (you can use more or even leave them out)
6 cloves of garlic, minced
1.5 onions, diced
1 tbsp of chili powder
2 teaspoons of cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Add ingredients to your slow cooker (I use a 6 quart oval for this). Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.

Serving ideas: Burrito Bowls (over rice or lettuce), Nachos, tacos, etc. This stuff is so good and we make it often. I hope you enjoy it as much …
