    This is a fast, easy and delicious dish. I marinated the chicken, a clove of garlic and salsa for 2 hours and the onion, peppers, salsa and some garlic in another bag for 2 hours. I pan fried the chicken took it out and then pan fried the vegies till soft but still a little crunch and then added the chicken back in for a few minutes. Top the mixture with some fresh cilantro and served with Recipe#13100#13100, sour cream and some grated cheese on heated tortillas (used corn). Made for Fall PAC Orphanage 2009.

    Yumm Yumm! This was very tasty super easy to make, and low cost! I reduced the serving to 2 for my lunch. I had enough to make one fajita and another for my freezer. I used garlic powder just because I was too lazy to chop up cloves. I also started with pre-cooked chicken and just threw it all in a pan. This was delsih! Very fresh tasting and will make again for sure! Thanks so much! Made for Fall PAC 2008

    This is very easy to make, and it tastes so good! just as soon as i got home from work, i put them in to marinate, and in that time i did some other house stuff, and by the time i was done, i could just fry them up real quick and they tasted delicious!


<img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> I am happily married with 2 sons, 16 and 5, they keep me quite busy but when I have an evening of peace I really enjoy cooking. I look forward to big family gatherings or game nights with friends...trying out new recipes and enjoying great food and friends. My mother really looks forward to trying new dishes and is always willing to be a guinea pig, she gives great feedback and I really love the opportunity to share my cooking with her--after all I wouldn't be much of a cook without her help!! My boys like to try new things so I really enjoy cooking for them, my husband is still set on pasta or pizza--without variation!! BUT we are working on him!! I enjoy just reading cookbooks, I have hundreds of them that I have collected over the years, someday I might have to thin out my collection a bit but until then....Happy cooking!!
