Grilled Chicken Fajitas and Weekly Menu Plan

Happy Monday my friends! Here we are, another week has just flown by, it’s crazy isn’t it? Doug made these delicious Grilled Chicken Fajitas for Mother’s Day, so we thought we would share them with you, and our Weekly Menu Plan also!

We had planned to grill out, but I really wasn’t in the mood for the same old burger or hot dogs, and I’m honestly not much of a steak lover, so chicken is what we decided on. After making the Grilled Margarita Chicken Kabobs last week, I wanted to try something different. So I went on a search for Chicken Fajitas…to where else…Pinterest, and found exactly what we were looking for over at Homesick Texan.

Doug did change up the recipe a bit, because I don’t really like super spicy food. The flavors were bold, with a hint of spice, and definitely a recipe we will make again. He also used Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar with Red Pepper for an additional POP in flavor, the recipe called for balsamic vinegar. We loved the different flavor that the Red Pepper Vinegar added.

We paired the Grilled Chicken Fajitas with Spanish Rice and Bush’s Texas Ranchero Grillin’ Beans and a little Pico de Gallo and Sour Cream on the side. The Spanish Rice needs a little more work, then we will share that recipe. And the Ranchero Beans had lots of flavor, they were a bit too spicy for me, but Doug loved them!

OH, and by the way…we are hosting the Bush’s Grillin’ Virtual Recipe Party tomorrow, Tuesday, on Hoosier Homemade, starting at 9 a.m. EST. If you have a Grilling Recipe you would like to share, be sure to add it to the link up. There is a great giveaway too!

Liz says...Loved the bold flavor on this grilled chicken.

Doug says...I think next time I'll only use the Chipolte peppers, love the smokiness they bring... might add 2 or 3. Whatever I can get away with
