chicken fajitas with hillshire farm #grilledessentials #cbias

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 4:25 PM

Recently I was sent out to make a dinner meal using the new Hillshire Farm Grilled Essentials chicken breast.
It was chicken fajita night and instead of slicing up boneless skinless chicken breast I went shopping for this easy to use chicken. I was pretty nervous especially after I read that to heat this 2-pack of chicken up you pop it into the microwave for just 60 seconds. How good could it taste right?

I found the Grilled Essentials right next to the packaged lunch meat section of my local WalMart. I wasn't sure which flavor sounded better so I grabbed both the Hardwood Smoked and the Italian Style. Other flavor options are Grilled (plain), Lemon Pepper, and Garlic & Herb. All options are just 120 calories per serving and 19 grams of protein!
Tonight I went with the Hardwood Smoked Chicken Breast
Like I said, cooking the chicken was simple. I popped it in the microwave (unopened) for 1 minute and the self ventilating packaging does the magic for you.
Do you see how juicy the chicken is?! It was seriously so moist and so flavorful. I could not believe how tasty it was.
So as you can see I sliced up some red pepper and a yellow onion. I let them sweat in a pan of EVOO and black pepper for a few minutes till the onions were caramelised and peppers were softened.

After slicing up the chicken breast add the onion and red pepper to a tortilla, top with (lots of) cheese and pico de gallo and enjoy!

Using Hillshire Farm Grilled Essentials gave me a quick and delicious meal idea for dinner (and lunch) that I will continue to use!

This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias #CBias. All opinions about the yummy chicken I tried are my own!

I didn't participate in this shop, but I did go out and buy some of these to try. I was SO IMPRESSED. I used them in Chicken Bowtie Alfredo. (A mixture of Italian style and Garlic&Herb). Sooo good!
