Whole30 Baked Chicken Fajitas Salad

Hi All! I just wanted to share one of my easiest whole30/paleo/clean recipes I have on hand! It’s budget friendly and you can get ingredients anywhere! So please go ahead and enjoy my recipe for Whole30 Baked Fajita Salad!

Ingredients:

4 servings

10 minutes prep time

45 minutes cook time

  • 3 chicken breasts (roughly 1 lb) or 1lb of chicken tenders
  • Avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 different colored peppers (you can do red, yellow, orange or green)
  • 1/2 chopped yellow onion (can leave out if need be)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper or smoked cayenne
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • Mixed greens
  • Salsa (if doing a whole30, make sure to check your labels for no added sugar)
  1. Preheat open to about 375F.
  2. Chop up the peppers into about 1in to 1/2in slivers. Then chop the breasts into 1 in to 1 1/2 in pieces, basically so they are easy to just eat with a fork.
  3. Put those contents into a baking pan and pour the Avocado Oil over it. Then take the spices and sprinkle vigorously and generously over mixture. Once done, mix the spices with the meat and peppers into the pan so everything spreads out easily. I bak it in the oven for 45 minutes.
  4. I serve the mixture over the mixed greens and use the salsa as a dressing. You have the option of heating the chicken separately or eating it cold on the salad.

Hi my name is Gabby, 26 and I work full-time as an accountant and I am in graduate school for my MBA part time. I have always been one busy bee, even before graduate school. Post-undergrad, I worked at a public accounting firm AND was studying for my CPA. My first year post grad, working crazy hours and trying to pass a beast of exam, took a toll on my body, my mental capacity and brain power. I started the Whole30 journey in January 2016 and fell in love with how I felt. But let me tell you it took some adjustments like setting aside time to meal prep and realizing I may not be able to a make a certain recipe because I just don't have the time due to studying or busy season. A lot has changed since then, I've switched jobs and passed my exam, but one thing stays consistent...I stilllove to cook efficiently. I've yearned all my life to have that "I am sexy" confidence and with healthy eating and exercise, I'm getting there. I started this blog to help others who are in a similar position as me, who want to become the best version of themselves but with realistic expectations. For the busy moms, for the students, and for overworked accountant, these are my stories and recipes on how to live a simple easy whole life.
