Migraine Friendly Chicken Fajitas

 These are so quick, easy, and always delicious!

 I use the same recipe for the seasoning as the taco seasoning (which is wonderfully easy to make–and I always make a big jar of it, so that it is ready when I need it for a quick meal).

Migraine Friendly Taco and/or Fajita mix (no MSG, no preservatives, low sodium)

Migraine Friendly Taco and/or Fajita mix (no MSG, no preservatives, low sodium)

Mix the following and store until needed

1/4 Cup Chili Powder

1 Tbsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Cayenne Pepper

1 Tbsp Dried Oregano

2 Tbsp Paprika

1/4 Cup Cumin

1/4 Cup Low Sodium Salt

1/4 Cup Pepper

Fajita Ingredients

1-2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast strips

2 Bell peppers (any kind you like–green, red, orange, yellow)

1 Shallot

Soft tortilla shells

Directions

Chop Shallot

Cut the bell peppers into long slices (relatively thin)

Cook the shallots and bell peppers in a large pan with olive oil on med-high until tender

Remove the shallot/peppers

Put the chicken tenders into the pan with olive oil and cook on medium high for ~5-8 minutes (until they are cooked through)

Add the shallot/peppers back to the pan

Pour ~3-4 Tbsp of seasoning + 1 Cup water

Cover pan with a lid for ~3-4 minutes (this lets the chicken/veggies absorb spice mix without evaporating water

*The reason I use extra water with this recipe is to have a sauce to pour over my fajita in place of salsa which can be a migraine trigger*

Assemble

I layer the chicken/veggie mix, chopped lettuce in a soft tortilla, roll it up, top with a slice of American cheese and sauce from the pan

Put in microwave for ~30 seconds to melt cheese.

Hubby uses sour cream, cheddar, salsa in his (migraine triggers for me, but they are delicious—mine are too, I promise).

Enjoy!
