6 (6 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, thinly sliced
sliced red bell pepper
taco seasoning mix
8 (1/2 inch thick) slices
shredded Cheddar cheese
very good! I added sliced avocado and sliced tomatoes underneath the chicken mixture and added extra cheese. I also used rye bread which turned out yummy! One tip: toast the bread on both sides under the broiler so it won't get soggy when you add the toppings.
A good base recipe which can be tuned to personal tastes. Would recommend toasting the bread before putting the salsa & chicken on it, was way too soggy for us and folded in on itself.
What a great idea Laughingmagpie! We love fajitas, and this was a delicous way to make them! I did toast my bread first(as I do for Bruschetta). Will make these again and again. The only thing I will do different, is to use fresh spices (garlic, cilantro, lime juice, etc.)next time to season the meat, instead of the taco packet:just a preference. Thank you, for a new favorite!
thanks laughingmagpie! these were great i only made a few changes. i used ortega fajita seasoning instead of taco seasoning and i didnt slice my bread just halved it to make them into french bread pizza fajita melts. will def. make these again.
This is my recipe and want to point out that these are not "fajitas," they are melts; open-faced sandwiches that are topped with cheese and broiled (ie tuna melts, patty melts). We still have fajitas sometimes, this is just a different quick meal, cooks relatively quickly and goes down quick.
Oh yum - a quick and easy way to have all the deliciousness of chicken fajitas with about half the work! I cut this down for myself to have at lunch and used one chicken breast seasoned with "Taco Seasoning II" from this site. I toasted my bread first and eyeballed the rest of the ingredients. Fabulous topped with a little avocado and a dollup of sour cream!
Quick, easy, and delicious! We really enjoyed these. Besides cutting the recipe down (there are just 2 of us), the only thing I changed was to omit the onions and added a clove of garlic to replace the flavor. Definitely a keeper, thank you laughingmagpie! :)
Very good! I put my chicken mix on a tortilla instead of bread and it came out delicious! :) I will be making this again, thank you laughingmagpie!
