Chicken Fajitas

Chicken Fajitas

I am TELLING you, God is trying to teach me a lesson right now, but I am not getting it, whatever it is.  Maybe it’s to slow down and chillax?  I don’t know.  Remember Monday morning when I fell down the stairs, hurt my tailbone for days and have a nasty rug burn on my arm?  Yeah, that happened.  Then tonight, after preparing this lovely dish, I added all of the leftovers to a container and JUST as I was about to place it on the counter, I have no idea what happened, but it ALL fell down!  It fell on the counter, on the cabinets, and on the floor.  I gasped loudly and thought again, “of course!  Just my luck!”  This has been reoccurring to me lately and I don’t know why!  Waaaah!!

Okay, so moving on. . .

It’s chicken fajita time!  This is a REALLY easy recipe, so it’s great for days when you’re too exhausted to prepare an elaborate dinner.  Not only that, but this is a clean eating recipe.  There’s nothing in here that’ll fatten you up, so you can have seconds!  But I’ll be honest with you, I was full halfway through the fajita.  And mmm, I couldn’t do without the lime.  SO good!  I don’t know why, because I was starving tonight!  I got home late from the office and needed something quick to whip up, so here is this yummy meal!
