Chicken Fajitas

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free, and many are dairy free. It has been a year since I switched the way I eat. My family eats what I make for breakfast, lunch, and dinner unless I am fasting or have already eaten.

Food is what binds us all together. Food is at the center of any celebration and or holiday. It’s really hard to go to a birthday party or a wedding and not be able to eat anything or hardly anything. Many people don’t understand allergies let alone those of us who feel better when we don’t eat grains. I have heard people tell those with allergies it’s no big deal. Please if you are around others that have food allergies please take what they tell you seriously.

I grew up eating mostly Scandinavian food.  Scandinavian food is a very milk cuisine. But ever since I was a kid I have always loved Mexican food. When I was a kid there was no Tex-Mex cuisine. This recipe is Tex-Mex. This is a simple recipe.

Try with Refried Beans, or Refried Jalapeno Black Beans, Tex-Mex coleslaw or Tex-Mex Egg Rolls.

 

1 recipe Fajitas Marinade

2 lbs chicken breast

2 large onions

4 large bell peppers (red or yellow)

Siente tortillas

 

Preheat oven to Broil. Slice chicken breasts, onions, and bell peppers. Reserve 1/4 cup marinade. Pour Fajitas marinade into a sealable gallon size bag. Place chicken, onions, and bell peppers into the marinade that is in a plastic bag. Place into the refrigerator. Marinade the chicken for 2 to 4 hours. Remove from fridge. Remove chicken, onions, and bell peppers and place on a bar pan. Pour reserved Fajitas marinade onto the pan. Place pan into the oven and broil for 4 – 6 minutes. Remove and allow chicken and vegetables to cool.
