Roasted Chicken Fajitas - Yours And Mine Are Ours

With the prices of beef continually rising, chicken has become  a staple on our menu.  We can typically find boneless chicken breasts on sale for $1.65 a pound verses $2.19 or more a pound for ground beef.  So, we are always on the lookout for new ways to serve chicken.  This is why I was anxious to review 125 Best Chicken Recipes by Rose Murray.  So far we have only had a chance to try one of the recipes, the Roasted Chicken Fajitas, but if they are any indication of the quality of the recipes in this cookbook.. then yum!

The Roasted Chicken Fajita recipe was a huge hit with our family.  It’s delicious, easy to prepare and was ready in about 30 minutes tops!  You can tweak it to use the ingredients you have on hand, what’s in season or on sale.  The recipe as written, calls for 2 large red peppers but as you can see we didn’t have those on hand so we improvised.  It still turned out great!  We also doubled the recipe.  In order to see the recipe as written  by Rose, you will need to buy the book 😉  I’m sharing our version below.
