QUICK AND EASY CHICKEN AND VEGETABLES

In an effort to keep myself feed while my wife diets and eat healthy myself, I quickly prepared this tonight.

Chop up some fresh vegetables like, different colored bell peppers, a red onion, anything you find in the vegetable drawer in the fridge and set them aside.

As usual, heat up some olive oil, garlic, and some hot pepper sauce in a skillet. Throw in some frozen chicken strips; you do not even have to wait until the thaw! As the meat heats up turn them over, salt, and pepper them. Do the other side in about 5 minutes, and turn them often, letting them blacken on each side. Remove the meat from the skillet when cooked well and sit them aside.

Dump in the couple of Roma tomatoes sliced in half and cook them about 3 minutes on each side. They soak up the oil and garlic flavor left in the skillet. Then remove the tomatoes and dump in the chopped vegetables - salt and pepper to taste. Cook the vegetables about 8 to 10 minutes.

Arrange the chicken strips in a flower pattern on a plate, and put the tomato halves in between the chicken strips and finally dump on the cooked vegetables.

Hot, spicy, crunchy, and delicious and you did it all yourself – quick and easy.

Let her eat her bland stuff – you are eating well my friend!

We call those Fajitas around these parts my man. Try takin a tortilla, with cream chese and salsa spread over it, some refried beans and rice, and wrap those grilled veggies and chicken parts up and enjoy.

Oh yeah...we do too, but have been trying to cut back on the bread - not having any luck, but we try.
