Thanks to Zaycon Fresh for providing me with a case of chicken breasts. All opinions are my own.
Happy Friday friends! What a week! It started out perfect here in Colorado. Warm weather and lots of sun. I even got out for a couple of afternoon hikes. Then come Thursday morning the cold, wet, snowy weather moved in. Can you believe it, SNOW in the middle of April…such is spring living here. Today hasn’t been much better, but hopefully the sun will be back tomorrow. Until then there won’t be any grilling going on, but there will be these fabulous Skillet Chicken Fajitas!
Chicken breasts are a staple item around our house. We use them in everything from salads, pasta dishes, casseroles, and one of my favorite ways, fajitas! A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to receive a case of Zaycon Fresh Chicken Breasts. If you’ve never heard of Zaycon Fresh they are a great farm to consumer company. I love that they skip the middle man so you can be sure you are getting the freshest quality products! Picking up my case of chicken was such a smooth and organized process. To be honest it was a lot less stressful than standing in line at the grocery store. I simply drove up to the pickup location (which was only a few miles from my house), pulled up to the Zaycon delivery truck, gave the driver my name, and he loaded my case of chicken into the trunk of my car. The whole process took maybe 2 minutes and I didn’t even have to get out of the car!
So now that I had 40 glorious pounds of quality chicken breasts, I needed to freeze them and then figure out the first thing I was going to cook with them. Here’s where the skillet chicken fajitas come into play.
The recipe for these chicken fajitas is one that my mom has always used. I made a couple changes, but nothing major. The fajitas use all natural and simple ingredients. No premixed seasoning packets, just a few basic spices and a whole lot of flavor! If you are gluten free or following a Paleo diet these fajitas just happen to be both. How you serve the skillet chicken fajitas is up to you. I enjoyed mine in lettuce cups the first night topped with homemade pico de gallo and on top of a salad the next night. My husband prefers more carbs with his dinner so he had his in tortillas.
With Cinco de Mayo coming up and busy end of the school year nights, these skillet chicken fajitas are perfect for serving. They only require the use of one cast iron skillet and they cook up super fast! If you love fresh and flavorful chicken fajitas this easy skillet version is just what you need!
