In less than 30 minutes, these chicken fajita lettuce wraps are ready for devouring.
And believe me, they are devoured.
If you didn’t already know, my husband and son just returned from a week-long Scout camp. Their second one of the summer. I don’t believe I’ve ever been so excited to see them.
And then…. they began unpacking their laundry.
I know it probably isn’t exactly the thing to do to talk about dirty, stinky, camp laundry on a food blog, but I know you guys will understand. Hopefully.
I became totally consumed with sanitizing everything that they unpacked, making it smell the freshest of fresh, and getting it all neatly folded and put back away.
It took a whole lot longer than I’d anticipated.
Lost in my laundress overload, I totally lost track of time when all of a sudden, the Mister texted me that he was on his way home for lunch.
First, I thought, I’ll ask him to pick up something for lunch for all of us on his way home.
Then, I knew that just didn’t feel right since he’d been away from home eating camp cafeteria food for a whole week. I need to at least make something homecooked for him to eat!
I knew I had chicken tenderloins I’d just picked up at the grocery store and I always have lettuce, onions, and peppers on hand. So, I quickly threw together these chicken fajita lettuce wraps just in time to see his truck turn the curve in our driveway.
I’d done it. Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps on the table in less than 15 minutes.
I’ll take success where I can get it. Because, you know, that laundry took a whole lot longer.
Here’s my quick and oh, so simple Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps recipe. Make it sometime when you are in a hurry. Or not. Either way it’s fabulous!
