I love chicken you can see in the amount of recipes with chicken that I made. It is light and contains a lot of proteine which is really good for your muscles. Especially when you work out regularly your muscles need proteine and chicken is an excellent option.
This chicken fajitas are so easy to make. In just 5 steps you get the most perfect pulled chicken you have ever tasted. Chicken is a quick cooking meat but can become very dry. That is why I like to make pulled chicken because it will not dry the meat as much. So to get pulled chicken bring water to the boil. You can also use chicken stock if you like.
Boil the chicken on a low simmer and cook for 25 minutes. Take it out of the water and shred with two forks. Put it in a bowl and add the following spices to a separate:
- Cilantro powder
- Pinch of chili powder (hot variety)
- Garlic powder
Combine the spices and put them on the pulled chicken. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the chicken and stir through thoroughly and set aside.
Now heat a skillet with some more olive oil and pan fry the spiced pulled chicken. This will take a couple of minutes. Add some water if the chicken sticks to the pan. Take out of the pan and heat some more olive oil again. Stir fry the sliced bell peppers and onion until soft.
You can heat small tortillas in the oven wrapped in aluminium for about 5 minutes at 350 ℉/ 175℃ and you are ready to plate it up.
