Chicken Faijtas Unwrapped

One of the things that is perfect to make with leftover chicken is chicken fajitas. My electric skillet is the perfect cooking vessel for this job. This recipe is quick and easy, especially if you are using leftover chicken, that only needs to be heated back up.

Leftover chicken (about 2-3 servings worth, broken into bite size pieces)
1 orange, red, or green bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 small onion, chopped
1 teaspoon freshly ground cumin
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
cilantro, chopped
canola oil
grated cheddar cheese
sour cream

Set your electric skillet to 300 degrees. Add enough oil to just barely cover the bottom of the skillet. Then add your onion and bell pepper. Cook until both are soften, making sure to stir often. Now add in your chicken along with the cumin. Cumin is the key spice to any fajitas. If you have a spice grinder, grind whole cumin for the best flavor. Cook the chicken until it has taken on a little bit of color and is fully reheated. Stir in some cilantro. Add some freshly ground black pepper to taste if you desired.

Serve in a your favorite tortilla. When picking out tortillas (unless you want to make your own), look for local companies instead of the national brand. They are usually fresher and don’t have add chemical or preservatives. The Ann Arbor Tortilla Factory is a great option for those living in my area. Add your favorite cheddar cheese, please shred it yourself, and sour cream if you like for dipping.
