Another quick dinner because of taking one kid to work and getting another kid ready for cheerleading.
NOTE: Since this meal had to be made a little quicker I used precooked chicken instead of raw chicken.
TIME TIP: While the meal is being prepared, here are some things the rest of the family can accomplish around the house during your wait.
- Have all kids place all their items needing to be looked at/signed from school.
- Start kids on their homework for the night.
- Have a kid work on cleaning dishes.
- Also, if you have a kid that likes to cook, have them help out and make it a fun learning experience.
Precooked Chicken Fajitas
1 cup of Shredded Cheese
5 cups of Milk
1 Red, Yellow, and Orange Pepper
1 White Onion
1 Box of Garden Delight Paste (you can use Penne Pasta if you prefer)
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Pepper
1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1 Tbsp. Cumin
1 Tbsp. Garlic Powder
Crushed Red Pepper (if you want more spice in your meal)
NOTE: If you are cooking your own chicken. Cut the raw chicken into strips and cook in a pan first.
Cut the onion into small pieces. Cut the peppers into small strips. Pour into the pot on medium to medium-high heat and stir vegetables around.
Once vegetables have cooked for a little while, add cooked chicken, 1 tsp of Salt, 1 tsp of Pepper, 1 Tbsp of Chili Powder, 1 Tbsp of Cumin, and 1 Tbsp of Garlic Powder. Add in some crushed pepper if you would like the meal to be spicier. Mix everything together.
Pour in 5 cups of milk and pasta. Stir ingredients and place a lid on the pot to let the pasta cook.
TIME TIP: While this is going on, here are some things you can accomplish around the house during your wait. Get the whole family involved to get more done!
- Review all work brought home from school.
- Make your bed (with 13 pillows and 4 sheets/blankets. (Not an exaggeration)).
Pick another side if you would like to serve with the pasta. Chop up some vegetables and make a delicious salad.
Once noodles are done, pour in the cup of cheese and mix together until cheese is melted. Your Chicken Fajita Pasta is now ready to serve.
Make the plates with whatever side you want for the kids and for yourself. Add some crushed red pepper to the pasta if you want more heat.
NOTE: I thought the meal tasted fine, but half the family did not like this meal. This will not be cooked again. I hope you have better luck with your family. Should have stuck with Taco’s for Taco Tuesday.
