Creamy Chicken Fajitas is one of my son’s favorite recipes and it’s also one of the easiest! It combines chicken, bell peppers and onions with fajita seasoning and cream cheese. It’s so flavorful especially over Mexican rice!

Creamy Chicken Fajitas

Ingredients

2 chicken breast, sliced
1 small onion, sliced
1 bell pepper, sliced
1 1 /2 cups chicken broth
5 oz cream cheese, cut into cubes
Optional- chopped cilantro, lime wedges

Fajita seasoning
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
(Can substitute for 1 fajita seasoning packet)

Directions
Combine fajita seasoning together in a bowl.
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in the pan over medium high heat and cook chicken until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Add more oil and sauté onions and bell peppers. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 3 minutes.
Add chicken broth and fajita seasoning and let it come to a boil.
Stir in cream cheese and cook until cheese has melted and sauce is smooth. Return chicken back to the pan and remove from heat. Serve over Mexican rice, chopped cilantro and lime wedges if desired.

Mexican rice (optional)

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups long grain rice (I like to use basmati rice, less mushy)
2 1/4 cups chicken broth
8 oz can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
Salt and pepper

Directions
Heat oil in a pan over medium high heat and sauté rice for a minute. Stir in chicken broth, tomato sauce and season with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover, and lower heat to all the way down to low and let cook for 20 minutes or unit rice is tender.
