Chicken Fajitas - easy and delicious weeknight meal!
I’ve officially reached the point of summer where I have no concept of time. I hang out with the kids all day at the lake or in the woods or whatever and then come home and watch them spray each other with the hose on the trampoline all evening.
And then it’s 8 pm and dinner was supposed to be hours ago and everyone’s hangry and we need food immediately and I just honestly don’t feel like fussing with much.
So I’ve got a list of quick and easy recipes that don’t require me to keep a ton of stuff on hand and that no one will complain about.
These Chicken Fajitas are at the top of that list..

Cranberry Turkey Salad - perfect way to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey!

Okay, guys.

It’s this week. Days away. Nobody panic but, like, have you gone to the store yet?

Tip: go in the middle of the night if you have to go this week. It’s the only way you’ll survive it.

Have you made your minute by minute timeline of the day?!

JK Do people that don’t live on Pinterest actually do that?

Anyway, I’ve got a no stress turkey option today that you guys are going to love!

I’ve never made a turkey on my own. Ever. I wouldn’t know where to start.

Lucky for me, Jennie-O makes it idiot proof with their Jennie-O Oven Ready Cajun Style Turkey. You literally just remove the outer packaging, slice some slits in the top of the oven bag, and roast it for 4 hours. (How to cook it video here!)

That’s it. No basting. No fuss.

Aaaaand it has a gravy packet that you just pour into a pot and simmer until hot and thick.

They turkey turned out perfectly juicy and the cajun spices were a nice change from the usual turkey. (Pssst, they have a regular turkey, too!) My kids came home from school the day I cooked it and said, “Why does it smell so good in here?!”

The Jennie-O website is where you should head if you need any Thanksgiving help. They’ve got several menus, a thawing calculator (you better do that one today!), and tons of recipes for side dishes!

Cranberry Turkey Salad - perfect way to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey!

If you happen to have leftover turkey, lemme suggest you make this uhhhh-mazing Cranberry Turkey Salad. There’s this grocery store in my hometown that makes the best chicken salad with grapes and pecans and, like, sometimes I dream about that chicken salad. So I kind of wanted to do that but switched the chicken for turkey and the grapes for dried cranberries.

It’s so good and even better on a croissant.

True story: was so excited to have an excuse to buy croissants and my evil husky ate the 3 remaining croissants while I was at the gym!

This Spicy Chicken Salad featuring Blue Plate® Light Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt is going to become your go-to lunch! Easy, healthy, and so delicious!

Spicy Chicken Salad - your new favorite lunch! Serve on toasted buns or as lettuce wraps!

What do you usually do for lunch?

I got in this nasty habit of buying salads for lunch a few weeks ago. I used it as an excuse to get out of the house (which is also my work) but it got real expensive, real quick. So I’ve been looking for options that aren’t bags of nacho cheese tortilla chips or boxed macaroni and cheese.

You know, healthier options.

Anyway, I’ve broken the salad habit and the mac and cheese habit and I’m officially hooked on this Spicy Chicken Salad.

Spicy Chicken Salad - your new favorite lunch! Serve on toasted buns or as lettuce wraps!

I’m super duper excited (like, seriously) to share the brand new Blue Plate® Light Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt.

You guys, this mayo has half the fat of regular mayo and is the only mayo out there to offer protein as a nutrient. This is a big deal.

You won’t miss the fat though – it’s got a creamy, tangy flavor that really enhances the flavor of food.

This Spicy Chicken Salad recipe was developed specifically for Blue Plate® Light Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt by James Beard winning Chef Alon Shaya of Shaya restaurant in New Orleans.

I’m a chicken salad person – are you? I am forever making this recipe that calls for sweet things like grapes and pecans so I was excited to try a spicy chicken salad! It’s got chicken, red onion, celery, mint, cilantro! Plus, the Blue Plate® Light Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt and sriracha for the heat.

I found these cute slider buns to serve mine on but you could totally serve it on regular sandwich bread or even wrapped up in lettuce!
