Chicken Chapatijita's & Two Years!

My favorite way to eat a Fajita is without a lot of spices or flavor added... at least nothing that is too overpowering... I'd rather get the flavor from the bell peppers and onions. I don't have a set recipe that I use and I never measure while making them. This time around, whatever I did made one hell of a Fajita! The easy combination worked out so well that I wanted to make note of it here... and it wasn't just the filling that was so delicious!... I made some fresh chapati's instead of tortillas (hence "Chapatijita"), and it made such a difference! I served it with some fresh tomatoes instead of salsa (which makes this very portable), and had some rice on the side. It was so good, I was sorry I hadn't made more!

For the Fajita, I sliced up 2 chicken breasts, 1 bell pepper, 1 onion, 1 green chili, and 1 clove garlic. I tossed these into a hot pan with some olive oil and sprinkled this with, McCormick Garlic & Herb, McCormick Onion powder w/ parsley & green onion, Spike, about 1/4 teaspoon sugar, salt, pepper, and some dried cilantro. I squeezed 1/2 lime over this and finished cooking until the chicken was done and the peppers were tender-crisp. I chopped up a tomato to put in each Fajita.

And here it is, all ready to be rolled up and enjoyed on a fresh Chapati!

Today my blog turns two years old :) Happy Birthday and/or Anniversary to what was once My Humble Kitchen and is now For The Love Of Food :D

Chapatijita is such a cute and innovative name and dish. I stuff my chappathis and rotis with good old tofu and some veggies too. It is really an easy and quick thing one could put together, and that is what our everyday meals are made of, right?
