One pan meals take the stress out of all the dishes you acquire when cooking. These one pan fajitas are easy to prepare and are ready to eat in under 30 minutes. Fajitas are a delicious way to get more protein (from the chicken) into your diet. Our organs, tissues, muscles and hormones are all made from proteins. When you consume foods rich in protein, you’re providing your body with the essential nutrients it needs to function at its best. Getting enough protein in your diet helps to support blood sugar balance, brain health, improves mood, supports heart health, bone health and much more.
