The Great Chicken Experiment Day 5

 Here we are at day 5. My how time flies.
Today I made chicken breast fajitas.
 Ingredients:
Chicken breasts (I used all of the breasts I had left)
Italian dressing (I used Wish Bone Robusto Italian- it was in the pantry)
1 sliced onion
1 large bell pepper ( I used a red one)
 I used my cool griddle pan. I sprayed it with non-stick oil.
Turn the heat on high and let the pan warm up before you start to cook.
 Here is the chicken breasts with the marinade on them.
I poured the dressing directly into the bag with them.
If you want more flavor, let the chicken sit in the marinade for some time.
 I sliced the chicken breasts lengthwise to let them cook faster.
If you don't want to do this, just cook them longer on a lower heat.
Pan fry one side of the chicken and turn when the edges start to turn white.
 Here is the chicken turned and cooking.
 I couldn't fit all of my chicken in one pan.
So, here is the rest of the chicken cooking.
 After I cooked the chicken, I washed out the pan to remove
the sticky pan grits from the chicken.
I added a little butter to help the onions and peppers cook.
I pan fried those on med-high.
 Here are the cooked peppers and onions.
 After letting the chicken sit for a few minutes while I
cooked the peppers and onions, I cut it up. I sliced a
full chicken breast for each plate for dinner. After that,
I sliced the rest of the chicken into cubes for tomorrow's dinner.
 Here is the cubed chicken for tomorrow.
Here is tonight's dinner.

Sliced chicken breast, pan fried peppers and onions, with spanish rice, slow cooked pinto beans, and some avocado. I made enough spanish rice and pinto beans for dinner tomorrow too. Just wait until you see what I do with them tomorrow.
