Cooking is more than just a hobby

I have found that cooking is very therapeutic for me in many different ways. For instance cooking makes a great exercise for the muscles in my right arm. They are not as strong as the ones in my left. One of the challenges I face is holding certain vegetables with my right hand while I use my left to hold the knife to cut or slice it. For me the process sometimes can be very slow and frustrating. But whenever I do get frustrated I am constantly reminded that I am doing it for God’s Glory.

The other night I prepared these delicious Chicken Ranch Fajitas. They have chunks of chicken, onion, and sliced peppers cook in one pan on the stove top. Mix in some flavorful spices and ranch dressing for the best 30-minute meal. These fajitas are excellent for a busy weeknight.

Skillet Chicken Ranch Fajitas

Ingredients

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped or sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
1 yellow or orange bell pepper, sliced thin
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small bite-sized chunks
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper optional
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp ranch dressing

Instructions

1. In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add sliced bell peppers and onions. Let cook, stirring every couple of minutes, for approximately five-eight minutes until softened.

2. While peppers/onion are cooking, combine the cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, (If using) chili powder, and salt in a small bowl and sprinkle over the chunked chicken. Using both hands mix until all chicken is coated.

3. Move peppers and onion to one-half of the skillet. Add the chicken to the other half. Let cook for approximately ten-twelve minutes, turning chicken, until chicken is cooked through. Stir the pepper mixture a few times so it does not burn. Mix the chicken, peppers, and onions together in the skillet.

4. Add the ranch dressing. Stir to combine. Serve with choice of tortilla, cilantro, sour cream, and guacamole or avocado. You could also serve with additional ranch dressing to drizzle over the fajita.
