My 3 year old is the pickiest of eaters. All he wants to eat are “macky cheese”, “chickie nuggets” or a “grill cheese sammich”. When I prepared these easy chicken fajitas last night for Taco Tuesday, he LOVED them! The picky eater ate two in fact, much to my delight.
Picky Eaters’ Easy Chicken Fajitas
I used butter-flavored spray, lime, sweet onions and bell peppers to make the fajitas taste more kid-friendly. There is mild spice on the Archer farms pre-cooked fajita chicken from Target, but they also sell chicken without spice.
This meal took me 15 minutes, which was perfect because I work full time and don’t have much time to cook a healthy dinner.
I ate my fajitas without tortillas for a keto-friendly meal option. You could use cloud bread instead of tortillas for a low carb option I have lost 55 lbs. now by doing keto and you can read more about it in my keto journey.

A Quick and Easy Meal
If you are tired after working all day, then I highly recommend you try these kid-friendly easy chicken fajitas. It is much healthier and costs less than eating fast food like at McDonalds or KFC.
The recipe calls for pre-cooked chicken strips to save time, but you could try cooking your own if you’d like. There are also frozen chicken breast strips available at your nearest grocery store if you don’t plan to use an entire container of chicken.

For the leftovers, we make chicken quesadillas the following night in order to save more money.
Easy Chicken Fajitas Garnishes
There are several garnishes you can put on the fajitas like sour cream, cheese, guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes and more. It depends on whatever your child may like. Bryan doesn’t like tomatoes and the other stuff so I just served his with cheese. He likes A LOT of cheese!

Are Fajitas a Healthy Option?
Yes, I think they are very healthy as long as you don’t double up on tortillas or pile on the cheese.
You could use low fat cheese or Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. There are so many low fat and low calorie options with these.
Right now, I am doing the keto diet, so I eat the fajitas with cloud bread instead of tortillas. They also taste good with no wrap at all!
