Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

“The key to making a recipe with only a few ingredients taste more complex is all in how you season it. This meal relies on boneless skinless chicken breast, bell peppers, and onions (doesn’t get more basic than that, people) but the McCormick Taco Seasoning Mix is the secret ingredient that brings it all together and makes these fajitas anything but bland. This spice pack is full of all the same herbs and spices I’d mix myself, but so much quicker.”

Potato Crusted Pizza

“You can give your pizza crust some unexpected crunch when you begin with a base of seasoned shredded potato rounds.

Basting the chicken every fifteen minutes as it bakes means the flavors from the peppers and tomatoes are roasted deep into the meat, meaning that you’ll be able to savor them in every bite.

Deviled Chicken Thighs

“In cooking, the term ”deviled” has several meanings, but it most often implies a preparation with a sharp flavor, most often derived from mustard, vinegar, cayenne or other chiles. In this dish, you don’t need vinegar, because there is plenty of acidity in Dijon mustard. Nor, strictly speaking, do you need cayenne (and I omit it when cooking for children); the taste is strong without it.”
