Easy Chicken Fajita and My Busy Weekend

Chicken Fajita

This Chicken Fajita is part leftover chicken, part leftover tortilla, part fajita seasoning… and a very busy day.

This living in your own home thing  can be quite stressful, you know. You don’t run out of things to do and it keeps on piling up.Weekends was a whirlwind of activities too!  Gasp! I can’t even keep up with the days of the week. It’s already wednesday today but it feels so much like a monday because I don’t think I was awake when I did all the things I did that day.

I wasn’t even able to go to the palengke to buy us food to cook! OMG!  And I had a hungry tummy and a hungry peanutbutter waiting for some warm delicious lunch. We didn’t have to worry about Ykaie because she was at school and even though I am a little zombie-fied in the morning, preparing a nice baon for Ykaie is a priority.

Good thing we had this leftover roasted chicken in the freezer and all I had to do was add a little fajita seasoning mix, and sauté it with some green and red bell peppers, and white onions. The tortilla was from the Apple Pie Dip and Cinnamon Totilla Chips I made last week for snacking.

Tadaaa!! LUNCH!

Just in case you’re wondering what made my head spin over the weekend. Well, here’s a rundown….

Chips Ahoy Ice Cream Creation Event Sm MOA

We were out of the house at 6:30am last saturday and made our way to BGC. We attended the La Filipina Canned Meats event (which I’m gonna be blogging about soon.) That event lasted until around 1 pm.  After that we left and headed over to SM Mall of Asia. We had coffee at Caffe Bene while waiting for the clock to strike at 4pm because we were planning to drop by Chips Ahoy Ice Cream Creations event.

Dinner was at Fresh at Solaire Resorts and Casino. I won dinner for six so I treated my in laws and my cousin Rome. We even had coffee at Starbucks afterwards! That got us home at 12 midnight.

Frozen Party Favors

The next morning (Sunday), Sis and I went to the jungles of Divisoria to buy Frozen party favors… Guess who’s turning seven next month? Then we went to S &R, hunting for Halloween-themed candies.

Causeway in Banawe

Dinner found us at Causeway in Banawe where I feasted on Chicken Feet, Shark’s Fin Dumplings and Pork Asado. Shucks! Having dinner at these delicious places needs to stop.

This week, there’ll be no leaving the house because it’s Ykaie’s exam week plus there are chores and errands to take care of. My calendar’s marked for the weekend, though. Another adventure is coming up.

Happy Hump Day and Thanks for dropping by.

  1. Found your blog through MJ’s post on Facebook! This is a great idea for a fast weekday dinner! I always have roasted chicken in the freezer and this is a great dish to make when I’m tired but want a good meal. I’m saving this for one of those days. 🙂

  2. You gotta love how leftovers and a few herbs become one delicious feast. I remember those days and I swear I do not know how I did, crazy does not even cover how life really is. I am craving some tex-mex!

  3. This is really a nice idea because this is always my problem when I cook roast chicken, naiiwan ang gitna. My family likes legs and wings lang kasi. hehehe!

  4. another yummy recipe mommy! 🙂 i have to say, im amazed that you still managed to whip up this yummy treat despite your busy weekend! moms’ are the best! 🙂

  5. Hi mommy! I was surprised that you know how to cook Chicken Fajita. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to offend you with that statement. Its just that I have never heard of this dish until I came here in UAE. Maybe, I’m not just exposed to different cuisines. Btw, I love the photos you shared on this post. If you don’t mind me asking, what camera did you use for shooting the photo of the Chicken Fajita dish?
