My Husband's Yummy Chicken Fajitas

My husband has been making these fajitas since before we met. It was one of the first things he cooked for me. The problem is- there is no actual recipe, so I could never make them myself. Last night I stalked him with my camera as he made them. Today I will share what I learned. Shhhh...

First. he cut up an onion and a bell pepper and added them to a large skillet. 

Next he added cilantro and 1/2 a finely diced jalapeno. He didn't cook them yet- just got them ready.

Meanwhile, he added three chicken breasts to another skillet. (Yes, that IS real butter.) He seasoned them with  Chef Paul Prudhomme's fajita seasoning, sea salt, and a dash of Tony Cachere's Creole seasoning.

When the chicken was done, he cut it into small strips. 

 He then added the chicken to the skillet with the vegetables.  Remember that 1/2 fresh jalapeno? Well, he took the other piece (whole) and added it to the skillet as well. (He removed it before serving.)

Next came fresh tomato.

He added a little more seasoning...

He mixed these and cooked over a medium heat. He then covered the skillet, lowered the heat, and cooked until the veggies were crisp-tender.

And there ya have it :). Add to warm tortillas along with your favorite toppings- shredded cheese, refried or black beans, pico de gallo, guacamole..whatever you like.

Enjoy :)
