Easy Peasy (super simple oven chicken fajitas)

I LOVE simple recipes! Seriously, if a recipe has more than, like 10 ingredients (including salt and pepper) I’m out. I just don’t enjoy complicated recipes. I cook dinner almost every night, so you’d think I’d be into it, but simple is best, especially when paleojr is back in school.

Being a full time mom and retail manager there’s no time for complicated dinners during the week.

Occasionally on a weekend I’ll get a wild hair and make a crazy recipe with more ingredients and more steps, but never, ever during the week!

So, last Wednesday was the official first day of school, and the official last day of summer vacation…..boo hoo!

Back to school is always so bitter sweet because I do appreciate routine, but random summer trips and lounging in shorts, tanks and flip flops really is THE BEST. Plus, my baby is growing so fast, it’s breakin my heart! I want to spend every extra minute with him, so that’s when a simple recipe really comes in handy.

Easy dinner = more time with my boys!  So tonight I am making Super Simple Oven Chicken Fajitas from Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook. They are in the oven right now, which is why I’m taking a few minutes to share this easy and delicious recipe with you, then it’s family time!! Have a great night!!
