One pot meals make clean up so easy. The chicken we get from Shopease Foods is so lean I really do not have any fat to cut off of them. Making meal prep so much easier since I just have to thaw my meat and start preparing my meal. The temperatures cooled off a bit for the day so I decided to cook on my stove since I knew it wouldn't heat up the house. 

One Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta


2 TBSP Olive Oil 
1 Pound Chicken Breasts, Boneless Skinless, bite-sized 
1 Envelope Taco Seasoning
2 Cups Bell Peppers, diced
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Cups Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup Half & Half Cream
1 Can Tomatoes, diced
3 Cups Penne Pasta

2. Add 1 TBSP of the olive oil to the skillet and allow it to heat up. 
3. Once heated add in chicken and cook until both sides are seared, cooked and browned. 
4. Remove chicken from pan once it is done. 
5. Add 1 TBSP Olive Oil to the pan and allow to heat up.
