Eating healthy not only helps your body to stay at an optimum weight, but it also improves your mood. With a better mood, you will be able to cope with the quarantine situation. There might not be a lot of groceries at your home at such times. So, we thought of sharing recipes with limited ingredients. Here are some recipes with five or fewer ingredients.
Baked Chicken Fajita
Cut boneless chicken in strips. Put taco seasoning on the strips. Then cut onions and capsicum in strips. Put all the ingredients in a baking tray. Bake at 375°F for 20-25 minutes. When the chicken is tender, it will be ready. You can add cheese to it or savour it with tortillas and salsa. If you don’t have taco seasoning, use soy sauce, salt, and pepper to flavour the chicken.
