Chicken Fajitas


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 sliced yellow onion
  • 3 sliced yellow and orange bell peppers
  • 5 smashed garlic cloves
  • cumin, paprika, kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, parsley
  • a ton of fresh cilantro

Be Prepared. Be Very Prepared:

1)  You need a bunch of pulled chicken.  How I do it:

  • Take a whole chicken, remove the neck and giblets, wash it off and place it in your pressure cooker and fill halfway up with water. (I am aware that the current standards say not to wash chicken off anymore because they are convinced you are going to throw chicken water all over yourself and contaminate your kitchen with salmonella.  To me, I like washing the chicken off.  It gets extra feathers off, blood off, goop off and plus you can get a good visual of the chicken just to make sure it looks good. Knowledge is always power. Just keep things clean and wash your hands)
  • Add garlic powder, 1 tsp kosher salt, a few grinds of fresh ground black pepper and 1 tsp paprika
  • Cook on high for 25 minutes
  • Remove the chicken and let it cool off.  Then go into the process of getting all the meat off and putting it into a large bowl, pulled apart.


2) Saute the veg

  • Take the sliced yellow onion, sliced bell peppers and garlic and saute them in a pan for about 3 minutes


3) Combine the two and prepare for Awe

  • Take 2 cups of chicken stock and add 1 tsp of cumin, 1 tsp paprika, parsley, and a ton of fresh cilantro.  Mix together and then pour it over the pulled chicken.  Mix until very well combined
  • Now add the sauted veg
  • Serve in warm corn tortillas with sour cream or guacamole
  • Beer of choice: Heretic Evil Cousin
