How about a tasty, easy to make, recipe for Chicken Fajitas? OK, here you go, my easy family tested and approved fajitas recipe. Chicken has gotten so expensive I saved money by using chicken tenders instead of chicken breast fillets. I mean what the heck, I was going to chop em anyway.
recipe serves 4 – with leftovers.
1 and 1/4 lb boneless skinless chicken tenders.
1 package of flour or corn tortillas.
1 can re-fried beans.
2 tomatoes – diced.
1 red bell pepper – sliced.
1 small white onion – sliced.
1 jalapeno – seeded and minced.
1 lemon – sliced into thick rounds.
2 avocados – skinned and sliced.
1 Tbsp olive oil – use half with chicken and other half with vegetables.
1/2 tsp chili powder.
1/2 tsp cumin.
salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper over chicken tenders.
In fry pan add 1/2 olive oil and heat to medium high and then brown lemon slices on both sides and remove to plate.
In same fry pan heat add spiced chicken and cook until done and browned.
Place cooked chicken in a clean bowl.
In sauce pan heat re-fried beans.
Add the other 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil to same fry pan and heat to medium heat.
To fry pan add onion, red bell pepper, and jalapeno and then saute.
Add chicken to to the vegetables in fry pan and mix. Bring to heated temperature.
Plate chicken mixture with tortillas, add tomatoes, avocado, and lemon round, with side of beans and its dinner time!
After you have had as much pool time, golf, and hiking you desire what’s left to do in the Coachella Valley? How about going to a wonderful Certified Farmer’s Market in Old Town La Quinta just east of Palm Desert. This event has been on our radar for sometime, and all I can say is I wish I had gone sooner!
I knew this was going to be special the moment we walked from the parking lot to the entrance at Old Town La Quinta. And even before I got to the fresh vegetables I was snapping pictures like this water fountain.
Or this one.
There are just too many great other Old Town photos for this post, but how about a couple shots of the mega fresh vegetables.
And how about:
The Old Town La Quinta Certified Farmers Market rocks from around October to May on Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Put it on your to do list!
