Paleo Chicken Fajitas

bake bread (1)

 

Paleo chicken fajitas is by far one of the easiest meal prep ideas I have ever made.  Loads of veggies packed with grilled seasoned chicken.  You can make so many meals and variations with this meal!  So easy to cook and stays well for the whole week of meal prep!

Paleo Chicken Fajitas

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 yellow pepper – sliced
1 red pepper – sliced
1 onion -chopped
1 zucchini – chopped
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cayenne powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. parsley
2 tsp. is garlic powder
1 tsp. pepper
dash of salt if preferred

Directions:
Cut chicken breasts into small bite size strips.  Throw into large skillet with extra virgin olive oil with medium heat.

Throw in all the seasonings for chicken.  Coat both sides and cook until done.

Sauté vegetables in separate skillet with olive oil and cook until desired texture (crunchy or soft).

**Something that I like to do: I put in the veggies with the chicken in the same skillet once the chicken is cooked so veggies get coated and a nice char with the seasonings and the chicken.***

You can combine in a bowl after the fact as well.

 

This is seriously one of my go to dishes. You can interchange the meats however you want!

Enjoy!  Sound off below if you have tried this!

If you would have asked me five years ago that I would love to experiment in the kitchen, I would have thought you were crazy!

Five years later, I cook up a storm for myself.  I love making my food to where it tastes just as good as it does in a restaurant – thanks to my husband for giving me that mentality!  I am always looking for an easy but different recipe too!

Any of the recipes you see on my blog will have some sort of spice element to it.  I love spicy food and it all depends on the type of meat as to how spicy I make it.  Of course throughout these recipes, you can tone it down or add more spice to it!  Here is my recipe for Cajun Shrimp!

Grilled Cajun Shrimp with Chipotle Dipping Sauce and Coleslaw

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time:  15 minutes

Ingredients:

Shrimp:
41-50 count shrimp
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. paprika
dash of pepper
(Feel free to add more seasonings and/or larger portions if you wish – I typically do not measure)

Coleslaw:
Bagged coleslaw (I buy the bag of coleslaw by Fresh Express)
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of light mayo
2 tbsp. of honey
dash of pepper

Chipotle Sauce:
1 cup of light mayo
3 tsp. chipotle powder
1 tsp. paprika

Directions:

Heat a large skillet over oven on medium heat with your olive oil.  Place shrimp in skillet and add all of our seasonings.  Cook shrimp on each side for three minutes or until done.  Place on plate

Place coleslaw mix in a bowl and stir in ingredients – as much as you want.  You can add mayo or subtract mayo depending on how creamy you would like your coleslaw.

Mix mayo and spices for the chipotle sauce in small bowl.  Refrigerate before serving.

Enjoy!

What’s Going On In February?

What's Going On InFebruary_

Welcome back!  Here are some of the great things I am doing this month with Laugh Always and maybe it will give you some new ideas if you are looking to change it up in these categories!

I want to hear from you!  Read on this article and then let me know what you recommend me checking out in the month of March!

Currently Reading:
Life hasn’t slowed down QUITE yet.  I do have a longer commute now that we have moved 45 minutes to the north!  I really want to download some audio books and listen to them on the way home.  SUGGESTIONS for some motivational books is appreciated!!!

Currently Watching:
I SINCERELY HOPE you are watching the latest addition of American Crime Story on FX!  I really truly hope you are.  I am all caught up and every episode has been intense and weird and heart wrenching.  The acting is superb.  I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Darrin Criss – the actor who plays Andrew Cunanan in the show.  Do yourself a favor and discover the gem that is Darren Criss.  If you don’t know who he is, look him up on social media.  He has a small following with his duo bank “Computer Games” (their songs are on my workout playlist!).  He was also on Glee for 5 seasons.  Just check it out!

Currently Cooking:
So I am still trying to find a new routine for myself with my shorter time in the evening.  In our new place, we have an electric stove which is a new experience for me.  Trying to figure that out and not trying to eat out every night!

Currently Eating:
To put this bluntly, I am eating everything in Chicago.  If you have followed along, my husband and I sold our house last month and we moved to Chicago.  Every weekend so far, we have gone to a different restaurant to check it out.  There is just so much that I want to check out that we will probably never go to the same restaurant twice!  One of my favorite restaurants we discovered is called Bellwether.  If you are in Chicago, it is an awesome place and not too pricey either!  We actually went twice in the same weekend; once for dinner and then brunch.  Brunch was awesome!

Currently Loving:
MY NEW PLACE!  The house that my husband and I sold was the house I have lived in since I was six years old.  It has been so hard to leave it behind but it went to a new small family which it couldn’t have been planned out better.  I am in love with the building we chose to start our new adventure in Chicago.  The view from our place never gets old.  I never want to leave!

Currently feeling:
This month I feel like I am finally settling in to the new place!  A new routine has started – rather than working out after work like I always have, I am now getting up at 530 and working out before leaving for work.  New routine but it needed to happen to fit everything into one day!  It’s easier than expected and I don’t have to get into my car and drive to a gym.  My gym is downstairs at my building!

Currently Listening:
I am rediscovering some old Usher songs for my running playlist!  I have been listening to random songs from my iTunes library and some new awesome workout songs have been coming up!  “Scream” by Usher is such a great song to workout to!

Currently celebrating:
Month of love!  Hello!  I mean, I don’t think I am totally into Valentine’s Day and my husband spoils me just about everyday, but it is an opportunity that we go and splurge on a good dinner (not on Valentine’s day – too crazy for us).  We visited this restaurant called “Untitled Supper Club” and OMG you need to go the next time you are in Chicago.  The food was excellent, service and ambiance was excellent and the band was awesome.  We made a reservation ahead of time and had a table right in front of the stage.  You just need to go!
I am also kicking off celebrations with one of my best friends this month – she is getting marred in June of 2019 and we attended a bridal expo!  Got some awesome ideas and the six of us filled up on some free samples of course because THAT IS WHAT MATTTERS.

Currently going:
My husband and I are making an effort to check out at least one new restaurant per weekend.  We don’t want to repeat and want to use our time wisely so each week we have been taking turns on picking restaurants in Chicago to get our exploration on!  Our most recent visits so far have been to Slurping Turtle and Untitled Supper Club – check them out!

Currently crafting:
Still no cricut!  I am inching closer and closer to just purchasing one so I should just do it.  I have too many ideas to create!

I am so tired of this snow and rain and then snow again.  At least we live in a building now, and we don’t have to shovel or worry about flooding.  However, I just want warm weather!  It will make my commute less worrisome – potholes are the worst!

Until next time,

Lo
