Chicken Fajitas...

Remember how we started these past few recipes? 

Chicken cutlets were on sale and I wanted to share with you
how I take advantage of them when they're on sale. 

If you read my post on how I prepare my pre-cooked chicken cutlets
you'll remember that besides pre-cooking the cutlets,
I also wrapped half the package of cutlets individually in 
aluminum foil and placed them in a freezer storage bag in the freezer.

That way, when I want to use the chicken cutlets for a variety of meals,
I just pull how many cutlets I need for the meal.   

I've always frozen my chicken cutlets wrapped individually in aluminum foil 
since I was first married many, many moons ago. 

Here's a recipe we all love...
Chicken Fajitas

  • 3 Chicken breasts
  • 3 Peppers, try to use different colors.  When I made these only green peppers were on sale.
  • 2 Onions
  • Italian salad dressing
  • Flour tortillas
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa
 Cut the onions and peppers up early in the morning.
Place them in a Tupperware, toss them with some of the bottled Italian dressing
and let them marinade in the refrigerator all day.

Here they are going on the grill.
They can take up to 30 minutes to cook.
Remember to check them and stir them!
I purchased this great grilling basket last year.  

Grilled vegies all done and ready to go!

Take 3 chicken cutlets from the freezer the night before and let them 
defrost on a plate in the refrigerator. 

In the morning,  unwrap and place them in a baking dish or a Tupperware
and marinade them also in some Italian dressing.  
Place them back in the refrigerator until you're ready to start dinner.

All grilled and looking delicious...

Here the fajitas are all assembled...
Feel free to add sour cream and salsa,
which I did AFTER I took the above picture! 


Please note, if you DO NOT have a grilling basket like mine, you can STILL make this dish!
Just place your peppers and onions in some aluminum foil
and place on the grill.  
You'll need to really watch them so they don't burn on you. 
This is how I use to make them before I purchased the grill basket.  


  1. Yummy!! Oh you have made me so hungry for lunch with this one. Too bad I only have a turkey bagel waiting for me!

  2. Hi girlie,
    Those fajitas look awesome. I will certainly be trying those soon.
    Great idea to grill them, I have sauteed them on the stove but it wasn't quite the same as when you get them at the restaurant, so now I know the secret!! Love all your helpful hints,
    about storing the chicken and precooking and all that. Great ideas my friend. Thanks,
    Love and Blessings, Nellie
