125 Best Chicken Recipes plus a Chicken Fajitas Recipe

Chicken is a main staple in this home. And knowing multiple ways to serve it to my family only makes my job easier. So when I was asked to review 125 Best Chicken Recipes by Rose Murray I knew I couldn’t turn down the opportunity. Plus there was a delicious¬†chicken fajitas recipe I just had to share with you!

Not only has 125 Best Chicken Recipes been an easy recipe book to follow, it’s filled with great ideas for all sorts of different cuisine and flavor profiles. I can find something to make when my girlfriends come over or something to make for my selective kids.

And the chicken fajitas dish I’m sharing today is something that was so simple to whip up in under 30 minutes! Definitely a great chicken dish to add to my collection of go to recipes.
125 Best Chicken Recipes book Chicken Fajitas recipeI love how the author sets up each recipe. She starts by sharing exactly what you need to do to prep before even giving you the ingredients.

So for this recipe I preheated the oven first and prepped the pan the chicken and veggies would be cooking in. Then she lists out he ingredients in both the metric and imperial measurements so if you prefer to weigh out your ingredients (or you don’t use imperial measurements) you can easily follow along with out any conversions.

Each chapter is also nicely divided with certain topics to follow along. And included in the back is a great glossary for reference and quick location of specific recipes.

And now for the good part – the chicken fajitas recipe!
