Tender, juicy grilled chicken is sliced thin and wrapped in a flour tortilla, then finished off with thick and creamy GOLD Premium Sour Cream.

Hun... What's for Dinner? | Grilled Chicken Fajitas #GayLea Foods

8 more day!!! 8 more days to what, you may ask? Why, only eight more days until school is out for summer! This past month has been the bane of my existence. Not only have I been battling a severe case of bronchitis, but I am totally sick of having to get up early for school, to pack school lunches and of homework. I seriously think any homework, or tests of any kind should be outlawed during that last month of school. Seriously, most of us parents are just trying to make it to the end, without teachers contacting CPS on us, for sending our kids to school in dirty clothes, with messy hair, crappy lunches and homework not done. I mean who really feels like sitting down to study about bridges, rural and urban communities, or poetry, when the weather outside is gorgeous? All I want to do is pack up a picnic and head to the beach, or watch the kids have water fights while grilling out on the back deck!

As much as I LOVE comfort food, I also LOVE a good piece of grilled meat. Summer for us means grilling. I rarely cook inside, so as to keep the house that much cooler. Chicken, steak, ribs.... just about anything finds it's way onto the grill. BUT the most important part of grilling for me, is the condiments. I'm always game for a wicked BBQ Sauce, or homemade chutney. How about creamy, silky sour cream? Gay Lea recently introduced us to their GOLD Premium Sour Cream. I have to be honest and say that before this post, I was happy with Gay Lea's regular full fat sour cream. After trying their GOLD Premium sour cream, I am in sour cream heaven! It is so thick and creamy! Almost like a soft cream cheese, which makes it fantastic for dips, in mashed potatoes, or in fajitas!

Grilled Chicken Fajitas

1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast (about 6)
2 tsp chili seasoning
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp salt and fresh ground pepper
1 lemon, juiced
2 Tbs olive oil
small flour tortillas
1 C grated cheese
2 vine ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado, sliced
Gay Lea GOLD premium Sour Cream
hot sauce

Place chicken in a large zip top bag and season with chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper, and lemon juice. Zip up bag and squish the chicken around, so it gets covered with all the seasonings and lemon juice. Place in a large bowl and place in the fridge for at least 1 hr (4 if possible).

Preheat grill over medium high, until it reaches 400 degrees. Place chicken onto the grill and cook for 3 minutes; until the meat releases easily from the grill grates. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Turn the heat off, under part of the BBQ and move all the breasts over to the section which has been turned off. Close lid and continue cooking the chicken breasts over indirect heat, turning once, for another 7-10 minutes; until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Remove chicken from the grill and tent with foil. Let rest for 10 minutes, before thinly slicing each breast.

Place sliced chicken breast into tortillas with your choice of Gay Lea GOLD Premium Sour Cream, cheese, tomatoes, avocado and hot sauce.

I love using sour cream in 7 layer dip

I honestly use sour cream for so much. If I had to narrow it down, I would say I love sour cream on my nachos and I use sour cream to dip my french fries instead of ketchup. So yummy

My absolute favourite way to enjoy sour cream is on top of a baked potato... yum. It is also a necessary addition when I make mashed potatoes :)

I combine it with fatfree gaylea cottage cheese and make my own fromage frais to add to all kinds of recipes (I made cajun chicken pasta salad with it earlier this week)

I have a killer Cheesecake recipe. Besides the cream cheese it calls for 1 pt of sour cream folded into it! I only make it for my Birthday, my Mom used to do to but i lost her 12 years ago. For 12 years she visits on my Birthday in the cake.

Aunt Bee said...

Those fajitas look FANTASTIC! We use sour cream nearly every day for something! <3

I mix salsa with sour cream and use it for a dip for nachos and in tacos.

Brenda Penton said...

I use sour cream a lot for baking. I just used the Gold Premium to make a chocolate cake last week and it was excellent! I also add it to casseroles and make dip with it.

Angela M said...

I use sour cream mostly on the side for a lot of meals, mostly perogies, tacos, and potatoes.
