Keto Chicken Fajita

Chicken fajitas are super easy to make and oh so satisfying. I love that it comes with colorful veggies. It’s also really easy to customize and make keto friendly. You can wrap it up in homemade keto tortillas, store bought flaxseed lavash bread or turmeric coconut wrap

No low-carb wraps, no problem! Just eat it by itself or over a nice green salad. Make it your way and keep it interesting with different topping. I love toppings avocados, shredded cheese and sour cream. 

My ketofied chicken fajita was inspired by Cafe Delites’ Best Chicken Fajitas recipe. I love it because she only used 5 ingredients for the chicken fajita marinade. I cut my chicken thighs into bite sizes pieces to expedite the cooking process. 

Make this easy chicken recipe and have dinner ready within 30 minutes. It’ll be a big hit with the family. The chicken marinade is made with clean ingredients that are already in your pantry. 

This is totally optional, but I added Bae Blend’s #tacotuesday seasoning.  Bae Blend’s is made with wholesome ingredients and takes your food to the next level! 

Here’s the description of #tacotuesday:
