Summer is my favorite season except when it comes to cooking.  Don’t get me wrong, you know I love to cook, but it’s way too hot to be spending quality time with my stove. Once summer arrives with all its glory and heat, I turn my back on recipes that involve turning on the oven.  That doesn’t mean we eat out every night.  It just means that I turn to simple, delicious, healthy meals that are quick and easy to prepare.

Quick & Easy Grilled Chicken Fajitas featuring Tyson and Birds Eye

We’re a Tex-Mex loving family, so my Quick and Easy Chicken Fajitas are fast becoming a weekly menu staple in my house. The chicken and veggies are cooked in the microwave.  Yep, in the microwave.  I use Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets and Birds Eye New Steamfresh Southwest Style Protein Blends.  I found them both in the freezer aisle of my local Walmart.

Quick & Easy Grilled Fajitas

I feel good about serving Tyson Grilled & Ready because they’re fully cooked, 98% fat-free and have no preservatives.  Combined with the Birds Eye veggies, I can serve my family a high protein, healthy meal. It’s the perfect meal solution to help me keep my cool and my reputation as a great cook.

This recipe calls for only 3 ingredients and the microwave does most of the work.  I heat the chicken breasts first, according to the package directions, then while the chicken cools enough so that I can slice it, I heat the veggies.

The southwest style of the new Birds Eye protein blend contains a delicious blend of whole grains, black beans, corn, lentils, red bell peppers, and sauce.  This blend would also be delicious with baked tortilla chips.

Grilled Fijitas

I only turn the stove on for just a few minutes in order to heat the tortillas on a grill pan.  I think the grill marks add to the overall appearance and it looks like I’ve been slaving over the stove.  No one needs to know that Tyson and Birds Eye have come to my rescue one more time.

Grilled Fajitas

I’ll let you in on a little secret:  The first time I made these fajitas, my entire family thought I had grilled the chicken. As my husband, the grill master, was eating, he stated, “I didn’t know you were grilling chicken tonight.  This is delicious.”  The entire family (husband, daughter, son, future son-in-law) said they thought I had just taken the chicken off the grill.  It’s that good!  I was a little embarrassed to tell them that the microwave did all the work.

  1. Robin Masshole mommy says:

    We are big fans of Mexican food here in our house. Those would be a huge hit for dinner with my family 🙂

  2. We love chicken fajitas! I never though about using pre-cooked chicken breasts though. They would make life so much easier when the summer heat has already permeated the house! I love the fact that you grilled the tortillas too – it really does make it look like you’ve spent hours in the kitchen!

  12. I am going to have to give this recipe a try. I usually buy the fajita chicken that’s already precooked. Then I heat it on top of the stove. Add grilled onions and peppers. I’ll have to grab this veggie mix next time.
