We all know how difficult it can be to provide our family with healthy meals they will actually enjoy, when time is limited and kids are notoriously finicky. Today, we are acknowledging Healthy Kids Day by bringing you one of our favorite kid-friendly recipes: Chicken Fajitas with Grilled Peppers and Onions. This quick and simple dish packs in a lot of flavor so everyone at the dinner table will be happy. Add fun toppings like guacamole, low-fat cheese, sour cream or plain greek yogurt, and chopped tomatoes or salsa. Kids love assembling a fajita just the way they like it, so they are more inclined to eat a well-rounded meal with their favorite ingredients. These chicken fajitas are so much fun to prepare and taste great, what’s not to love?
Kristel’s Tip: Make a double batch of chicken and vegetables so you will have leftovers. Pack lunches for your kids with the fajita mix chopped and mixed with Tex-Mex Style Brown Rice for a protein-packed meal option. Alternatively, serve the mix (with or without the Tex-Mex Style Brown Rice) over chopped romaine for a delicious salad. Heck, these meal alternatives sound so good, you should probably pack some for your lunch tomorrow, too!
