I recently thought about going on a raw food diet. But then I remembered how much I love chicken.
I really love chicken, guys. My family does too. So much so that we buy our chicken wholesale from Restaurant Depot. We actually have to pre-order it since it's halal chicken and not always available, and the few days or weeks that go by without chicken in the house is truly a miserable time for us.
So yeah, no raw food diet for me any time soon. Actually, I plan on making these chicken fajitas every day for the next week because they are SO GOOD.
I don't really dabble in Mexican food much. I've never been to Chipotle. The closest I've gotten to Mexican food is Taco Bell, which some would argue isn't real Mexican food, but I only enjoy one item on their menu anyway, so yeah. You get what I'm saying.
But I had some boneless, skinless chicken breast (my fave!) on hand and I wanted to try something new. And marinated chicken has never steered me wrong. So, I took a shot ....and I scored big time!
These are so flavorful, juicy, and delicious! With the addition of sour cream, my taste buds were literally bouncing off the walls. I could not get enough. I even took the risk of missing part of Scandal's new episode just so I can whip up another wrap for myself. THAT GOOD, people.
By the way, how great would these be for the Super Bowl this weekend?
