John and I have been kicking some serious butt meal planning and making dinners at home...
Dare I say we are getting into a rhythm?!
Don't get me wrong, we aren't eating four course meals... but one course (or two, if you count our apres dinner Ben & Jerry's... mmm, half baked!!) is good enough for us beginners!
This chicken fajita bake is so simple and wonderfully tasty - it will be a definite go-to in the future!
Begin by placing two chicken breasts in a baking dish with a non-stick spray.
Sprinkle taco/fajita seasoning on top of the chicken breasts.
Top with peppers... and lots of 'em!!
Drizzle with olive oil.
And now for the best part... top with shredded cheese!
Bake for 45 minutes at 375 degrees, or until the chicken is cooked through.
And don't freak out... it may look a little crispy, but it is just the cheese mixed with the taco seasoning (can you tell that I had to convince John that it wasn't burned...?).
After baking, let the chicken rest for 5 minutes.
Serve with rice and any other fajita toppings that you enjoy!
This recipe is the perfect "for two" dinner... you aren't left with large amounts of left overs and nothing will go to waste! Sounds like a win to me :)
