  • ¼ Cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 head Romaine lettuce, washed and separated into individual leaves

Instructions

Begin by making the Fajita seasoning.

Prepare the fajita seasoning by combining all ingredients in a small bowl and stirring until thoroughly blended. Store any excess in an airtight container for later
use.

Next make the Cilantro-lime sauce

Combine all of the cilantro-lime sauce ingredients in a medium glass or other non-reactive bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

TIME TO MAKE THE FAJITAS

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the peppers, onion, and balsamic vinegar to the skillet and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook for about 10-12 minutes or until the onions and peppers are tender.

Add the shredded rotisserie chicken, 2 Tbsp. of fajita seasoning, and chicken stock to the skillet and stir to combine. Cook until heated through and excess liquid is gone, approximately 3-4 minutes.

Taste and add additional fajita seasoning, if desired.

Remove skillet from heat and stir in the cilantro, green onions, and fresh lime juice. Serve on individual Romaine lettuce leaves. Drizzle cilantro-lime sauce over.

Serve and Enjoy!

Notes

Make the Fajita seasoning to keep on hand.

Prepare the Cilantro-Lime sauce the day before making this meal and store in the refrigerator. The flavors will marinade and you will save time preparing the meal the day of.

Serve on flour tortilla shells instead of Romaine lettuce if you like.
