Easy Fajitas

I could eat these every day of my life and they took only the amount of time that it takes for chicken to cook.
10/10 would do again 😫⭐🌟😍

Welcome back to another episode of Café Budgét where budget is pronounced like Bougie 😉

Table for how many?

On today’s menu we have Easy Budget Fajitas!

These fajitas are super delicious and I scarfed mine down in less than 6 minutes.


For this recipe, you’ll need some:

chicken–the amount is up to you, depending on how much you like per fajita.

Bell peppers


and spices: Salt, Garlic, Rosemary

as well as some Olive Oil

Let’s Get Cooking

If you are beginning with raw chicken breast, you’ll want to cook that first, in a boil. I add salt and olive oil to the water I cook it in. I slice the bell pepper (and any other veggies you’d like in it) during this step.

Once it is looking mostly cooked, (some pink is fine), drain the water and kind of sauté it in just a small amount of olive oil (to cover it), Rosemary, a little more salt to taste, and a generous of Garlic. …In my book, there’s almost no such thing as too much garlic, but even with a generous amount, I didn’t taste the garlic. Rosemary will give it a little bit of a smoky flavor.

Then I added the Bell Pepper. I let these sauté until the chicken was fully cooked and nicely seared. I probably cooked it on a medium-low heat.

Finally, I turn the heat down low and add the tortillas on top to warm and be infused by the flavors.

Once that tortilla is nice and soft, it’s time to serve!

I had already taken a bite of it, don’t @ me 😭😍

One thing I noticed about this recipe was that Rosemary. I used quite a bit (gently dusting the top of the chicken), but I think next time, I would use a slight bit less rosemary–just a tad less–I didn’t think it was a perfect companion for the Bell Pepper. Nonetheless, I scarfed this down and was hungry for more.

Overall, I could eat this recipe every day of my life and pretty much be content.

I had also planned on making beans with this recipe, but my beans were frozen and I was too antsy to eat. But next time, I’d like it sided with beans and rice, maybe some corn.

This recipe is really so simple and adjustable; add what you love, take out what you don’t. But let me tell you–cooking your chicken in olive oil and then searing it with garlic and rosemary? *Chef’s kiss to the max* Gorgeous combination.

I do know that I did not provide y’all with a cost breakdown on this one, and that is because chicken is such a personal choice. Organic, free-range, or you don’t care, there’s different prices. Generally, I saw that the better chickens were going for about $5/lb at Walmart. and for a single-serve fajita, I recommend two thinly sliced breasts. (I used one and was pretty satiated, but would have wanted leftovers.)

Anyhow, I hope y’all enjoyed dinner tonight! Come back soon for Budget (and mouthwatering!! 🤤😍) Chicken Alfredo!! (using the same chicken recipe as listed here 😋)

See you next time!
