{Ultimate} Chicken Fajitas - Recipe!

When I'm looking for a quick & easy recipe for dinner that doesn't heat up the house, one of my go-to meals is Chicken Fajitas.  You might think it doesn't heat up the house because we grill them but, no that is not the case.  I actually cook them in the microwave in the Deep Covered Baker, a Pampered Chef product.  I used to sell Pampered Chef products so, I have a slew of wonderful kitchen products that I don't know if I could live without - the Deep Covered Baker being one of them!  Ok, so here's how I make some of the best Chicken Fajitas in the microwave...


3-4 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 med Bell Pepper
1/3 med Onion
Your choice of fajitas seasoning - mine are Southwestern Seasoning & Chili Lime Rub
Tortillas - Our favorite, fresh made wheat tortillas from Central Market
Fixings: Cheese, Salsa, Sour Cream, etc

One - Cut the Bell Pepper & Onion into strips & place into the Deep Covered Baker.  Sprinkle the Southwestern Seasoning & Chili Lime Rub so that it covers the vegetables.

Two - Cut the chicken breast into strips and place in the Deep Covered Baker.  Once all the chicken is cut add the Southwestern Seasoning & Chili Lime Rub to the chicken.  Note: There are no seasoning measurements but, just enough to cover the veggies & chicken.  Mix the chicken, vegetables & seasonings together.

Three - Place the lid on the DCB and put it in the microwave.  Cook for 10 minutes and then take it out, mix the chicken & vegetable & place back into the microwave.  Cook for another 5 - 8 minutes and they are done!  While the fajitas are cooking grate your cheese & warm your tortillas.  Serve with Salsa, Sour Cream, Guacamole, etc.

Have you ever cooked Chicken Fajitas in the microwave??
