  • 1 lb chicken breast sliced, and diced into small pieces
  • 1 large yellow onion sliced
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 3 tbsp fajita seasoning
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 tortillas can be Gluten free, flour, corn, etc.
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheese dealers choice! I used classic cheddar.


  1. Heat a large frying pan on medium heat with your oil of choice.

  2. Slice the onion and both peppers into thin slices and add to the heated pan. Toss so that the vegetables are fully coated with oil. Cook until the vegetables become fragrant and slightly soft.

  3. Add the sliced chicken into the same pan as the vegetables and sauté until the chicken is almost fully cooked.

  4. Add your seasoning to the pan and toss to coat all chicken and vegetables. Pour the 1/4 cup of water to deglaze the pan and cook the fajita mixture on a medium low flame for approximately 10 minutes.

For the Quesadillas

  1. Heat a smaller frying pan on medium heat and add some non-stick spray (optional)

  2. Add a tortilla and sprinkle a layer of cheese on one half of the tortilla.

  3. Using tongs, take some of the fajita mixture and add it to the same side of the tortilla where the cheese is. Add some more cheese and fold the tortilla in half. Cook for 2-3 minutes and flip. Cook again for 2 minutes.

  4. Repeat for the remainder of the tortillas. Serve with pico or salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.
