The Chicken Fajita Stew is a refreshing twist on tex-mex food. In this quick and healthy gluten-free meal, the chicken is marinated in fresh lime juice, Mexican spices and then seared until the chicken is crusted with the most delicious coating.

Then come the fresh vegetables like bell peppers, red onions and tomatoes. The veggies are pan-fried with the chicken until crisp tender.

To finish this tasty dinner, sweet corn, chicken broth and plenty of fresh cilantro. Somewhere in between, I have also added baby potatoes.

The potatoes are cooked separately as not to take away from the delicious spiced up lime broth that infuses the tender chicken and crispy veggies.
