About Chicken Fajita Stir-Fry

This stir-fry will knock your socks off! It’s so easy to make and has big flavor and a bit of spice, and here’s a little tip about it: You can prep all the veggies in advance. Then, when you get home after a long day at work, all you have to do is heat the oil in a skillet and you’ll have dinner within a few minutes. Serve it over rice. or on a tortilla or just eat it straight out of the skillet. You can also top it with guacamole, sour cream, salsa or tomatoes for a delicious and easy weeknight dinner.

I used chicken breast, mushrooms, onions, jalapeno, and yellow bell peppers in this dish. You can easily substitute in your family’s favorite vegetables, other great choices are snow peas, yellow squash, zucchini, and carrots. This also really good made with beef, shrimp, or without any meat at all.

I also recommend using a cast iron skillet for this recipe, while you can use any skillet oh hand, I find cast iron caramelized the veggies the best and brown the chicken well. I have added a link to the one I use at home and love and for the price, it is well worth it.
