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.  You can find them both in the freezer aisle at your 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.

Only 3 Ingredients!

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. Plus, 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

Easy, Peasy, Recipe

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.

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

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!

Zan June 26, 2015 - 7:59 am

Simple and easy enough for me. My hubby is the one who grills so maybe I should get this chicken and pretend like I grilled it (funny). I love your easy summer fixes Alli!

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle June 26, 2015 - 11:14 am

This recipe is so perfect for me! I don’t have a lot of time to cook, but I don’t want my family living off of mac & cheese. Thanks for sharing this!

Christy Maurer June 26, 2015 - 11:24 am

I love fajitas! This recipe looks extremely simple and yummy! We just had chicken, corn, black beans lasagna (using tortillas) last night. Mexican food is so good!

Lynsey Jones June 26, 2015 - 12:37 pm

This looks like a quick and easy meal idea for the summer. I like the fact that it’s made with healthy options.

My husband love chicken fajita forhis lunch at work. I haven’t tried grilled though. Thanks for sharing this, I will try it next time.

Fajitas sounds like a good idea for this weekend. They’re so quick and easy with this method!

Chantal June 26, 2015 - 7:04 pm

These look delicious! Using pre-cooked chicken is such a great idea and a huge time saver!

Carly Brydon June 26, 2015 - 11:28 pm

Fajitas are one of my favorite dishes! I love the idea of using Tyson’s grilled frozen chicken and Birdseye’s vegetables!

Uplifting Families June 27, 2015 - 1:17 am

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.

I like quick and easy recipes like this. I want to make this for my family.

Jeanine June 27, 2015 - 10:18 am

Yum! Do these ever look amazing! I haven’t ever made Fajitas, my husband has in the past so I may give these a try!

I LOVE chicken fajitas and that Tyson already grilled chicken is the BEST!! It’s so quick and easy and tastes yummy!!

This time of year I’m all about quick and easy meals. My family eats tacos a lot, I will be adding in chicken fajitas to our rotation.

These are one of my go-to meals for a busy weeknight. They are so easy to make and also easy to personalize!

My husband is a huge fan of fajitas, we actually bought that for dinner last night. I’m going to make my own from now on!

Krystal June 27, 2015 - 8:21 pm

You’re definitely making me hungry. This looks like a tasty idea for a fast dinner!

I worked in a mexican restaurant for a long time and eating fajitas was something I never got tired of! I never add corn, and your recipe uses it. I am going to give this one a try

Nile June 28, 2015 - 11:42 pm

I make a version of this in my house. I also do a tostada type version too. It is really delicious. I urge others to try this out if they haven’t already. 🙂

I cannot believe that those chicken breasts were made in the microwave. I veto the you, I would love to know how you made the corn salsa. Looks delicious.
