I don’t know why but I’ve been exhausted every afternoon this week so I’ve been putting the least amount of effort possbile into making dinner. So tonight I turned to one of the easiest one pot meals. Fajitas! This is one of my favorites because it’s simple, tasty, and has few ingredients. It’s a great time saver too since it only takes about 20 min to prepare. It’s a little different than traditional fajitas since it’s more sweet than spicy but they are oh so good!


2 chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips
1 green bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
1/2 large onion, sliced into thin strips
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
1/2 cup Lawry’s teriyaki marinade

Place chicken, bell pepper, onion, and garlic in a bowl. Pour marinade over the ingredients and toss to coat. Refridgerate for about an hour or all day if you have time to prepare in the morning. Heat a skillet over med/hi heat. Remove chicken, peppers, and onion from the marinade and add to the pan. Cook until chicken is done and peppers and onions are softened. Serve on warm tortillas with your favorite toppings (salsa, cheese, tomato, lettuce, etc) These would be great served with rice or a corn and black bean salad.

    I love making fajitas when I’m pressed for time. The teriyaki sounds like a fun twist, like Asian fajitas? šŸ™‚
