Chicken Fajita Pasta
I got this recipe from my mom years ago. We like it for a quick and good weeknight meal.
1 T. chili powder
1 t each ground cumin and oregano
2 T lime juice
2-3 boneless chicken breasts cut into pieces or strips
Coat the chicken in the mixture listed above and let sit. I often will do this step in the morning, so when we get home the meal gets thrown together quickly.
Get water boiling for pasta and then get the other items ready:
Cook chicken in 1 T olive oil and remove from pan.
Add a drizzle of olive oil (if needed) and cook:
2 c. pepper strips (red, green and/or yellow). I usually have some of these in the freezer from when they are in season.1 med onion, either diced or in strips
Add cooked chicken, cooked peppers and onions and 1 c salsa to 8 oz. hot cooked pasta. Top with 6 oz or so of crumbled feta.
