Fajita Chicken 

I tried something a little different for dinner last night.  Instead of putting stuff on my chicken breasts, I put stuff in them!


These are the ingredients I used.

I started by rinsing the chicken,  patting it dry and then cut 6 slices partially through the top of them.

I put 2 pieces of pepper in each slice.

And then slices of Monterey jack cheese in each slice with the peppers.

I moved them into a parchment paper lined pan, because I knew it would get a bit messy.

Brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled taco seasoning on top.

I added chopped green onion on top of everything.

And Baked it at 400 degrees for 30 minutes until the chicken was fully done.
