School has started, so it's time to pull out the quick dinner recipes! After having the summer off I always struggle to get back into the swing of working and getting everything else accomplished....not to mention keeping everyone organized on homework.
Here's a quick dish from Reshaping It All by Candance Cameron Bure (my favorite Full Houser). It's quick, healthy and everyone ate seconds. That's an A++++ in my books. Enjoy :)
ORANGE CHICKEN FAJITAS
1 pkg. chicken breast
2 yellow bell peppers (I used 1 yellow, 1 green)
2 orange bell peppers
1 large white onion
1/4 cup 100% orange juice
1 TBSP olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Toppings (I like shredded lettuce, cheese, sour cream, tomato, black olives, refried beans and salsa)
Wash and cut the peppers and onion into thin strips. Cut chicken into thin strips as well. Heat oil in skillet and add chicken, peppers and onion. Cook until veggies are tender and chicken is cooked through. Add orange juice and let simmer 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve on tortillas. Top with your favorite toppings.
I'm a previous stay-at-home mom of 8 years who joined the working world again as the Food Service Director over our local school district and a high school lunch lady. I have 3 kiddies. Makayla (Miss Picky Pants) is 11, Sophie (Worm) is 10 and Chase's 7. I LOVE to cook! If you're looking for plain ol' mom food... you're in the right place! I'm always looking to cook up new recipes and simple, inexpensive meals. My goal's to share old favorites and to make new ones. Thanks to everyone who stops by and visits my blog! You inspire me to keep posting (even when I have a difficult time managing my time!)
