Pampered Chef Microwave Chicken Fajitas

OK, I realize that this may be limited to those with a Deep Covered Baker from Pampered Chef BUT it was sooo good, sooo fast and sooo easy, I felt I needed to include it here. This recipe is from Pampered Chef so it includes their products in the instructions.

Fast and Easy Chicken Fajitas

3 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1-2 Bell Peppers (red and green)
1 large Onion
1 small lime or ½ lime
2 Tblsp Taco seasoning
6-inch Flour Tortillas

Sour Cream
Shredded Cheese

Fill the Mini Baker with the 6-inch tortillas, cover with foil, and put in a 250 degree oven to warm. Or put the Mini Baker in the microwave covered with a damp paper towel for @ 30-45 seconds to warm.

Slice the bell peppers with the Ultimate Mandoline or the Forged Cutlery Knives. Slice the onion with Apple Wedger. Put onions and bell peppers in the bottom of the Deep Covered Baker, sprinkle with 1 Tablespoon of taco seasoning. Add the raw chicken on top of the peppers and onions (leave a little space between the chicken breasts), squeeze lime over the chicken using the Citrus Press and then sprinkle with another Tablespoon. Cover with the lid and microwave for 15 minutes.

When the chicken is done (cut into a piece or check with the Pocket Thermometer to make sure it is done), cut it up in the baker using the Salad Choppers. Put on tortillas and enjoy!


  1. Judging from the date of your post this fajitas recipe is older than I'da thought. I JST had them at a PC party several weeks ago and they were to die for! I am NOT a fajita person as they just always seem dry to me - but these are juicy and succulent! Note - the consultant used chicken thighs rather than breasts as she likes them better in general. I had my yearly party a few weeks ago - biggest and best one I've ever had and finally got the covered baker for myself (along with the salad choppers) JUST so I could make this recipe! LOL :-) We're having them tonight and cannot wait! FYI - The PC 'margaritas' are fab too - and I'm not a margarita girl either!

  2. That's such a great recipe indeed.I love this dish.Nice recipe.

  3. How many did this serve?

  4. You can make this dish in ANY microwave safe covered baker. You don't need the Pampered Chef one.

  5. I was just thinking, is it possible to make this in a Corning French White, with the lid?
