I’m About To Turn One Hundred!! (Giveaway Time!!!!) (GIVEAWAY CLOSED)

Hey everybody! Thanks so much for having entered my giveaway! Using random.Org, the number picked was #20. That means that the winner is Sandie ofย  http://sandiesbitchinkitchen.blogspot.com/ Yay!!! I’ll email sandie and she’ll have two days to get back to me. If not, I’ll pick an alternate winner. Congrats Sandie!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes, yes, I am old. But not THAT old darn it! I am not turning 100 in real life though I will be 47 later this month (please feel free to send me bifocals, Geritol and a walker… and chocolate; lots of chocolate. What?! Old people need chocolate. For their hearts… and livers… or something.). This post, right here, the one you’re reading now, this post here, yep, these words, all these strung together letters (ok, I’ll stop now. Sorry. ๐Ÿ˜› ) is my 100th post!! I feel this calls for a celebration. Like maybe giving one of you a subscription to Food Network Magazine (alternate prize if you’re outside of their subscription area). That and CHICKEN FAJITAS!! Why fajitas you ask? Cause it’s what I wanted and made for dinner and it just happened to be on the day that I made my 100th post ๐Ÿ˜‰ In other words, no particular reason lol.

These fajitas are the worlds easiest chicken fajitas. Heck with cooking the chicken, making a home made sauce and all that rot. This is more of a prep and technique than it is a recipe. You know me; if I can make something a little bit easier for you and make a few people think “DOH! Why didn’t I ever do that?!” and give them more time to spend on the important things like family or reading or eating Twinkies, I’m all for it. So that’s what I did today. Tomorrow or Sunday we’ll get more involved when I makeย  Savory French Onion Bread Pudding With Gruyere Cheese and in the next few days, I will also be making duck with some sort of yummilicious glaze or sauce; I’m still working on that one. ๐Ÿ™‚

As for the giveaway, I don’t know about you, but I love Food Network Magazine. I thought about a regular cookbook but I thought it would be more fun to give a gift subscription to them. It’s something, that if you win, you’ll receive for 12 months and I thought that was way cooler than a one time gift :-D. To enter the giveaway, you can do three things; each of them will get you an entry. 1) make a comment here and if you want, tell us all your favorite Food Network Show; that will get you one. 2) Like my facebook page (Look up “From Cupcakes To Caviar” on facebook or find the link right here on the right side of the blog; that’s me ๐Ÿ˜› ) and let me know in your comment that you did; that’s a second entry. 3) Follow me on either Networked Blogs in facebook or Google (here on the blog at the bottom) and let me know ; that would be a third. I will randomly choose someone from all the entries. I will keep this going until August 10th, then I’ll pick the winner. ๐Ÿ™‚

On to the food!!! Again; not a recipe really so much as it is a method using convenience products and a couple of fresh ones. They taste wonderful and are so so easy; great for a rushed night or just when you’re feeling lazy. Not that I’Mย  ever lazy *cough cough*. Just trying to help you out is all. In this, I used Frontera Skillet Sauce (these were created by Rick Bayless. Look him up if you’ve never heard of him. He’s a wonderful chef.). I used the Classic Fajita Skillet Sauce but added more lime because I like the lime zing in fajitas. If you don’t, feel free to omit the lime in this. You can find these sauces at pretty much any decent sized grocery store in the same section as the taco shells and such. This feeds four with a little bit of leftovers (maybe more if you’re not feeding teenage boys ๐Ÿ˜› )

Chicken Fajitas

  • 2 small deli rotisserie chicken, skinned and deboned.
  • 1 pouch Frontera Skillet Sauce
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 orange or yellow pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • juice of one lime
  • fresh cilantro
  • corn and/or flour tortillas
  • cheese, sour cream, cilantro, tomatoes, all the toppings you would use on tacos even though technically they don’t go on fajitas ๐Ÿ˜€
  1. In a large pan over low heat, saute the veggies until soft. Turn the heat up at the end (and stir frequently) to brown them. Be careful not to burn them.
  2. Stir in the chicken, sauce and lime juice.
  3. Serve with toppings in tortillas.
  4. See how easy this was? ๐Ÿ˜› The most time consuming part is pulling the chicken off the bones and slicing the veggies.
