Directions

1. To make the creamy chicken fajita skillet: Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and one teaspoon fajita seasoning on both sides.

2. In a large skillet, heat one tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add chicken breasts and cook for about 4 minutes on each side until browned. Once chicken breasts are done and no longer pink, transfer the grilled chicken breasts to a plate and set aside.

3. Add the remaining tablespoon oil to the same pan. Cook onion and bell pepper strips until crisp-tender, then add the fajita seasoning. Continue cooking until onion gets translucent.

4. Slowly deglaze with the chicken broth, then add tomato sauce and softened cream cheese. Mix to combine until smooth while simmering for 2-3 minutes. If the sauce gets too thick, add more chicken broth. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.

5. Add the cooked chicken breasts back to the skillet with the creamy fajita sauce and reheat for 2-3 minutes. Serve the creamy chicken fajita skillet, garnished with fresh chopped parsley, shredded mozzarella, and red chili pepper flakes. Enjoy with cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, or pasta for non-keto!
