Chicken Fajitas Meal Prep

First of all, this Chicken Fajitas meal prep for the week reminds me of that time I was in Mexico running on the beach…..

Yeah can I go back there to run? Kansas just doesn’t hold anything to running on a beach. Don’t get me wrong I love where I live and what it has to offer in the simplicity here but sometimes…yupe wishful thinking.

 

Chicken Fajitas Meal Prep

This week I decided to do one of my favorite meal prep recipes, Chicken Fajitas. These are so darn tasty and easy to make! I also love that they are very versatile too. Therefore, I make salads, burritos, burrito bowls, or just eat them plain with the veggies and add a salad on the side. You can make up some quinoa or rice to go along with them for the bowl. Then, you add in a little greek yogurt or cilantro lime yogurt dressing and you are set to go!

If I could pick my favorite way to eat this it would definitely be as a burrito. However, during the low carb days of my carb cycling a burrito isn’t really an option so I will go for the salad.

BTW…Has anyone else tried the Bolthouse Farms yogurt dressings? I love these things. Currently in my fridge I have the ranch, creamy caesar, creamy balsamic, and the salsa ranch.

The Recipe

My favorite Chicken Fajitas recipe is one that I adapted from Taste of home. It has a great marinade that keeps the chicken nice and juicy with just the right amount of flavor!
