Chicken Fajita Salad

I’m going to set up an official Costco rotisserie chicken page because all of these ways to use them are so good and save so much money!

George came up with this one and it was a home run. We both wanted it in the standard rotation.

This recipe serves 2. One whole chicken and 3 or 4 onions would serve 6 – 8. We serve it over chopped lettuce. If you’d rather add a carb to your meal, you can serve it over beans and/or Mexican rice.

Start by making some fresh salad and dress it lightly with olive oil. We like lettuce and tomato but do yours any way you like as long as the flavors will meld with Mexican flavors.

Cut at least one onion (two are better) in half and slice all the halves. Cut a fresh pepper (or use the Costco jarred red peppers) into strips. Toss all the veggies in a skillet with some extra virgin olive oil and cook until they get tender (letting them carmelize adds even more flavor).

Meanwhile remove the meat from either one breast or the two leg quarters and slice it into strips about the same size as you sliced the veggies. Put the meat in a bowl and sesason well with chili powder and cumin. Just sprinkle it on and start tossing. You can taste the meat to get an idea of how seasoned it is. When we make it, we like to see spice on all of the meat. Just do it to your taste.

Toss the meat in the skillet, stir and continue cooking until it heats through. You may have to drizzle on more olive oil.

Spoon the hot fajita mixture over your salad greens (or your beans and/or rice). We like to serve homemade fresh salsa on the side. Other condiments you could add are the typical avocado, sour cream and shredded cheese.

I zeroed out fuel and last week we didn’t have to fill up at all. Having one car has it’s advantages. Today’s powerup is $80.
