Clean Eating Fajitas w/Seasoning

SUPER SIMPLE Clean Eating Fajitas w/Seasoning, 4 Ways!I’m a huge fan of cooking one main meal, then reusing it multiple ways later in the week. We all have a million things to do, so why spend extra time in the kitchen if we don’t have to?! This fajita-seasoned chicken can be used SOOOO many different ways.

And you don’t need any expensive/processed packets of seasoning mix loaded with sugar, it’s super simple to make this marinade at home!!! #eatrealfood #feelrealgood

Recently I grilled a triple batch up on a sunny Sunday after church, and we used it to make 4 MEALS that week!
1. CHICKEN FAJITAS  – with Gluten Free brown rice tortillas and salsa
2. CHICKEN SALADS – leftover meat & veggies, served on salad, w/chips and salsa
3. CHICKEN BURRITO BOWLS – leftover meat & veggies, served over brown rice w/salsa
4. CHICKEN DINNER – leftover meat & veggies,with grilled pineapple & quinoa

All four meals were a hit with my toddler and hubby, AND they were super easy and healthy too!! #winwin  These are exactly the type of meal plans I love sharing in my online nutrition group, so I wanted to post it here for you guys as well 🙂

Does your family love Fajitas too??
