Fajita Chicken Stir Fry

Wow!  That's all can say about this.  The flavor was is as good as it looks.  This dish is not only delicious, but it is packed with a nutritious kick. There are several options for making this dish.  The easiest and quickest choice is to simply grab some fajita seasoned chicken breast at the grocery store.  I prefer to season the meat myself.  To do this you can simply purchase 2 packages of Fajita Seasoning Mix, or make your own mix using these ingredients:
Fajita Seasoning
3 Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp Chili Powder
2 Tbsp Salt
1 Tbsp Paprika
1 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Poultry Flakes
1 1/2 Tbsp Onion Powder
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Tsp Red Pepper      

Stir Fry
4 Lbs Chicken Breast or Thighs cut into strips
2 Peppers (red, green, yellow or orange) sliced into strips
One Medium Onion sliced into strips
1 10 oz package fresh mushrooms sliced

Add 1/4 cup oil to Fajita seasoning in mixing bowl.  Add chicken and cover.  Chill in refrigerator for 2 or more hours.

Place chicken in Wok, or large skillet with 2 tablespoons of marinade.  Stirring chicken frequently allow to cook until tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.  Add fresh vegetables and continue to stir for an additional 10 until vegetables are tender, but not over cooked.

You can serve this the way my husband enjoyed it, with flour tortillas.  You can also serve it over white rice.  Either way you'll enjoy this dish for sure.
