Lately, there is this huge Pinterest posting of oven chicken fajitas. I have to admit that I was interested to see this new fad growing ever so greatly. I think it just takes a simple grilled meal and converts it to a meal you can easily throw into a casserole dish and bake. It’s simple but takes plenty more time than grilling. However, I think the idea is great. For this Havarti Chicken Fajita Grilled Cheese Sandwich I did just that. I made oven chicken fajitas and used the leftovers for this sandwich.
I used Arla Dofino Havarti cheese! OMG! Such a great complement to the fajita chicken that I baked. The lime and spices easily pair so deliciously. Havarti grilled cheese sandwiches are always my favorite for that #GooeyGoodness. The Arla Dofino brand of cheese includes a delicious range of family-friendly cheese types such as Havarti and Gouda. Arla Dofino cheeses are naturally good from farm to fridge. The cheese is free of added hormones, artificial flavors and preservatives, and crafted with quality, natural ingredients. Arla Dofino cheeses have been traditionally crafted in Wisconsin for more than 100 years.
Hmm I just love this cheese!
