Guacamole Fajita Chicken Roll Ups

August 27, 2018 | Author: Ashley McCrary

I was just telling my husband the other night how I have been craving chicken fajitas from our Mexican restaurant down the road. They seriously have the best fajitas that will make your mouth water. I don’t have the fancy serving skillets that they bring to the table so I recreated one of my favorite Mexican dishes in a easy way. These Guacamole Fajita Chicken Roll Ups are bursting with all kinds of Mexican flavors.

To make this a packaged deal, I flattened the chicken breast and filled the middle with smashed avocado, peppers and onions along with my homemade fajita seasoning. Next, I simply took one end of the chicken and started rolling. Once rolled tight, I secured each chicken breast with a tooth pick and sprinkled more of my delicious fajita seasoning over the rolled chicken. It may seem complicated to make, but turns out, it is actually really easy and doesn’t take long at all.

I serve these roll ups with my Cilantro Salsa that is better than any restaurant style salsa and it is also Whole30, Paleo and Keto compliant with no sugar added. If you are craving Mexican fajitas but don’t want to leave your jammies or maybe you are on a Whole30 and need a yummy dinner to satisfy, give this recipe a try.

Can these Guacamole Fajita Chicken Roll Ups be cooked on the grill instead of the oven?

Yes, this recipe can also be cooked on the grill. I choose to use the oven method for this recipe because it seems less messy and way more convenient. I just add the chicken roll ups to a baking sheet, throw in the oven and walk away. If you choose to add these to the grill, you may want to put down aluminum foil to avoid the chicken from sticking. If this happens when you go to turn them, they could fall apart.
