Chicken Fajita Pita | Life, Love, and Good Food

I don’t know about you, but sometimes it’s really easy for me to get into a boring routine when it comes to weeknight dinners.

Just because I write a food blog doesn’t mean that I don’t get stuck in a rut sometimes, especially on weeks when work has been hectic and I arrive home too tired to get very excited about cooking dinner.

When that happens, I look for simple meals (trying to avoid copping out at the drive-thru) like Chicken Fajita Pitas. What I love about this dinner is that I don’t even have to turn on the stove!

Season chicken breasts with a little olive oil and Weber’s Kickin’ Chicken spice then toss on the grill. Add a few sliced peppers and onions in a grill pan, then stuff it all in a pita pocket and eat!

This recipe is versatile — use whatever veggies you have on hand and whatever fajita toppings you prefer — just get a little creative! Top with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes or jarred salsa, sour cream, cheese, taco sauce…you name it!

I decided to top mine with Avocado Salsa, another quick and easy option.
