Chicken Fajitas Recipe made with Zaycon Fresh Chicken

Zaycon Fresh provided me with complimentary products. The opinions I have expressed are my own. #ad Chicken Fajita

If you are like my family, you go through a lot of meat. We like meat in our family: chicken, beef, sausage, bacon… yum! I have found that Zaycon Fresh is the way to go for buying in bulk for our family. I love how easy it is to order and pick up from Zaycon Fresh.

Zaycon Pickup

You go to Zaycon Fresh, enter your location, and pick what you want to buy. You will be told what time and location to go pick up your food. It is so simple to pick up! As you can see from the picture above, you enter by the sign and get in line, although there was no line when I went to pick up. The very nice Zaycon Fresh person will then load what you bought in the back of your car for you. I had no leaking issues, but they put that thick black bag down just to be safe. I was out of there in less than 5 minutes.

Chicken

There is a little bit of processing needed before freezing your chicken, but I don’t mind. 40 pounds of chicken feeds my family for a LONG time. I usually package 2 breasts per package and that is more than enough chicken to feed my family of 6.

I haven’t had a chance to try anything but the Zaycon Fresh Chicken yet, but I’ve heard great things about their bacon. I definitely want to try that and the ground beef. Have you ever tried any of the Zaycon Fresh products? I’d love to hear what you think.

  1. Those fajitas look fantastic! I haven’t ever tried Zaycon but 40 pounds is a LOT of chicken and it could probably last me an entire year!

    This fajita recipe looks really good. I make a lot of Mexican food but have never made fajita’s. I will have to try this.

  3. The most important part of a good fajita is having a good tortilla.
