Margarita Chicken Fajitas

I apologize for the lack of posts lately.  Life has gotten a bit crazy and my luck with trying new things hasn't been real good lately and I only like to post the best ones here!!  Well I finally hit the JACKPOT with this recipe.  It was oh so DELICIOUS!! After making fajitas the family kept eating just the chicken because it had such an amazing flavor.  I think it could be used for many different dishes. Oh YUM!!
Margarita Chicken Fajitas
4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used about 14 chicken tenders)
1 cup thawed frozen limeade concentrate
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 onion sliced
1-2 yellow or orange peppers, julienned
1 Tablespoon olive oil
 8-10 tortillas
shredded cheddar cheese
diced tomatoes
diced avocados
sour cream
lime wedges

Place chicken in a large resealable baggie.  Add the limeade concentrate, salt and pepper.  Seal bag and turn to coat.  Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.

Remove chicken from the marinade and grill, broil, bake or pan fry until cooked through. *Make sure you grease what ever cooking surface you are using. Slice ore dice the chicken pieces.

Heat a skillet and add 1 Tablespoon olive oil saute onions and peppers until tender.  Season with a little salt and pepper.  Add some red pepper flakes if you like the heat!!
Layer the chicken, peppers and onions on your heated tortilla.
Add any other toppings you desire. 
Fold up and enjoy!!
Next time I am going to use the whole can of limeade an marinade extra chicken for the freezer or just for other dishes!!
DELICIOUS and HUGE hit with the entire family!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
