"Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves."
~Dale Carnegie

"I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday."

"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."
~Earl Nightingale

Salsa Chicken

Salsa Chicken
4 servings

1 pound chicken tenders
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 green pepper, cut into strips
1/2 onion, cut into strips
1 cup salsa

Brown chicken, green pepper, and onion in oil. Stir in the salsa and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until chicken is cooked. Enjoy!

So quick, so easy and so good! This would be nice to make ahead and freeze for a busy evening. You could just heat it up and serve on flour tortillas when you don't have the time to fuss with fajitas.
