Super Easy Chicken FajitasI don’t know about you, but there’s a direct correlation between the amount of summer sun and the amount of time I don’t want to spend cooking. Basically, my goal each weeknight is to get everyone fed and happy so we can get outside and play as soon as possible to enjoy time as a family after work. So, when Foster Farms contacted me about trying out some of their Simply Raised antibiotic free chicken to create an easy weeknight recipe post, I jumped at the chance.

Why Foster Farms chicken?

Because there are no antibiotics administered, they are produced with no added sodium, given 100% vegetarian feed, American Humane Certified, and 100%  natural {minimally processed, no additives or preservatives, steroids or hormones} and they are locally grown throughout CA, OR, and WA. Oh, and the kids love the commercials with the talking chickens.

My summertime meal criteria includes the following: 1) no oven use because it turns the downstairs into a sauna 2) as few pots and pans as I can manage 3) cook extra whenever possible to enjoy leftovers for multiple nights 4) quick and easy meals are preferred and 5) healthy is a must

One of my favorite easy weeknight meals that satisfies all of these criteria is chicken fajitas because they are full of veggies and goodness, can be cooked in one pan, and they are super quick to make and enjoy for multiple nights.


Here’s what you need:
•    3-4 chicken breasts. I use Foster Farms Simply Raised products because my family is huge fans of Foster Farms fresh chicken, and I’m a huge fan of the Simply Raised label.
•    2 large peppers and 1 large white onion, cut into strips. If you are short on time, you can even use frozen peppers and onions. They are already cut up for you and you can simply dump them into the pan after the chicken cooks.
•    Fajita seasoning. You can buy it, or you can make it with the following ingredients: 4tsp chili powder, 2tsp paprika, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp cumin, .5 tsp ground cayenne and .5 tsp red pepper flakes. Of course, you can modify this as you desire.
•    Tortillas, any kind.
•    Sour cream, guacamole, and salsa for topping
•    Beans {optional}
•    Cheese {optional}
Foster Farms Simply RaisedPut your fresh chicken in a large pan {I should note that I *should* have cut the chicken up prior to cooking, but I was lazy. Luckily, the Foster Farms chicken breasts were really tender and I could easily cut it up with the spatula, so basically I saved time AND having to wash a cutting board} and cook until no pink remains. Foster Farms chicken breastsAfter the chicken is cooked through, you can add your veggies, cover and then cook until tender, stirring occasionally. When the veggies are almost done, you liberally sprinkle on fajita seasoning and add water if necessary. Simmer for 5 minutes until the water is mostly soaked up before serving on tortillas with toppings. Chicken and peppers for fajitasAs you can see, this is a lot of food. This recipe is enough for two nights of fajitas for my whole family, or you can add the leftovers to pasta. One night of cooking for two awesome dinners for the family is definitely a summertime win. Chciken fajitasFoster Farms has been family-owned and operated since 1939. As the West Coast’s leading poultry producer they have numerous lines to choose from for any recipe. From frozen chicken strips {which are insanely delicious} to their precooked grilled chicken strips {which are my go-to salad topper or sandwich filling}, there are tons of solutions for easy weeknight meals under the Foster Farms brand.Laughing with burritoIf you aren’t already familiar with the Simply Raised products, I would highly recommend you check out the Foster Farms website to learn about them. In addition to the Simply Raised line, they also have an awesome Fresh & Natural line and an Organic line, all of which are available in CA, WA, and OR.
