Hi, have I got the easiest, quickest meal for you? Yep, I have – Easy Tex Mex Chicken!
I am talking 5 minutes prep in the morning. Leave in the fridge all day and then throw in the oven for 45 mins before you want to eat. I told you it was Easy!! This delicious dish is fab served in Tortilla Wraps Fajita style, or alternatively, as I have, with potato wedges – well if you’ve got the oven already on…..
Recipe : Easy Tex Mex Chicken serves 5-6
750g/1.5lb Boned Chicken Breasts (approx 5)
1 Large Spanish Onion
3 Peppers – the colours are up to you!
1 Packet Fajita Seasoning – alternatively use 3 tsp Fajita seasoning
2 tbs Olive Oil or Rapeseed Oil – I use Kentish Oils
Pat dry the chicken breasts using kitchen paper.
Cut up the chicken into bite sized chunks (I used scissors) and place in a large, freezer bag.
Pour a couple of glugs of Olive Oil over the diced chicken then tip in the contents of a Fajita mix.
Next it’s time to get chopping!
Pop the chopped veggies into the freezer bag with the seasoned chicken and smoosh about a bit so they are covered in the spicy oil.
I prepared the Easy Tex Mex Chicken in the morning and then stashed it in the fridge until dinner time.
To cook, tip the contents of the freezer bag into a shallow oven proof dish. Place in a preheated oven 200C/185C fan and cook for 45 minutes.
To serve either warm some soft tortillas and load up fajita style, or, as I did tonight simply popped in some Baked Garlic Herb Potato Wedges . Since the oven is on it makes sense.
Well that’s dinner sorted!!
Enjoy how easy this feast is!
