I'm linking up with Gussy Sews again this week for the Inspiration Workshop! (Want to join in on the fun? Click here to find out more!) Every week, she gives us a prompt to blog about, then we go back to her blog and link up our posts. It's like a big blog-community party! :)
The prompt for this week: GREEN. I'm sharing one of my favorite recipes using a GREEN herb- cilantro!
We are in full-fledged cilantro season here in northeast Ohio, because cilantro doesn't like it in mid-late summer when its too hot.
Sidenote: I've heard there are some of you out there who don't like cilantro for whatever reason- cilantrophobia. Supposedly, it's a genetic thing, but you should get over it already because you really don't know what you're missing!
These chicken fajitas are one of my favorite foods! (Ok, ok, my mom tells me that I say that about a lot of things.) :) You will just have to try them for yourself and see what you think.
- 1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
- 4 C. vegetables, thinly sliced (I used red and green peppers and onions)
Cilantro spice paste:
- 1 C. fresh cilantro leaves (finely chopped)
- 2 TB. soy sauce
- 1 TB. olive oil
- 1 TB. chili powder
- 2 t. ground cumin
- juice of 1 lime
Mix the cilantro paste with the chicken and allow to marinate for 15 minutes.
Stir-fry chicken in 2 tsp. of oil over medium/high heat until cooked through.
Remove from the pan and keep warm.
Add 2 tsp. of oil and stir-fry veggies until tender-crisp (3-5 minutes).
Serve in tortillas with your favorite toppings (guacamole is a must! plus- more green!) ENJOY!
