You’re going to love this easy and healthy recipe for make-ahead freezer chicken fajitas. Simply combine all of the ingredients in a plastic freezer bag and freeze for a busy weeknight. Then, when you’re ready to eat, cook it in a big pan on your stovetop. Easy-peasy, dinner is done!
Here’s what I love about this recipe:
- All the prep work is done ahead of time so it takes less than 15 minutes to cook a delicious dinner for my family.
- It’s simple and healthy.
- I can prep a couple freezer bags at once when chicken and peppers are on sale and save $$$.
To be honest, I’ve been making this recipe for years…in my crockpot. While you can certainly cook it that way, sometimes I forget to plan ahead a need a quick and easy dinner idea.
These chicken fajitas are a family-favorite that I love to serve to guests. The simple combination of sweet peppers and seasonings is to-die-for and it’s very easy to adjust the amount of meat based on how many people you’re serving. Enjoy!Print
