You can have a healthy, delicious, and fast meal with this 20-Minute, One-Pan Chicken Fajita Pasta. It’s a scrumptious skillet meal that’s made for busy weeknights!
For some reason, the word fajitas conjures up images of glorious summer in my head. Totally weird, since fajitas are typically sizzled up on an indoor pan rather than grilled outdoors.
Maybe it’s the sizzling thing. Or the bold, zesty flavors. Or the vividly bright colors. Whatever the reason, I’ll take any meal that resembles summer just about now.
Especially if it’s a healthy one-pan meal I can dish up any ‘ol Tuesday night…
This One-Pan Chicken Fajita Pasta is quickly and easily tossed together. It’s healthy, clean, and lively with flavor.
If you use a mini chopper, it makes veggie chopping super fast. Grocery stores often sell pre-chopped bell peppers and onions, which can be a weeknight dinner lifesaver.
The chicken is generously seasoned with fajita seasoning; feel free to go with homemade or store bought. [BTW, if you decide to make a batch of your own fajita seasoning, it’ll keep well in an airtight jar for instant use whenever you want.]
Tender chicken gets browned to golden perfection. The veggies get a happy stir in the same pan. Even the pasta gets cooked to al dente deliciousness, all in that very popular pan.
Needless to say, this one’s a home run in our house.
Here’s to Tuesday nights at the dinner table.
