Fajitas Chicken

Recipe

Hey there, fajita fans!

These chicken fajitas are the real deal – bursting with flavor and ready in under 30 minutes. They’re perfect for a weeknight dinner that everyone will love. Plus, you only need one pan for the whole thing – easy cleanup!

Chicken fajitas are all about the fresh, sizzling goodness. Perfectly seasoned chicken, colorful peppers, and tender onions come together in a symphony of deliciousness. I can never resist them at restaurants, and now you can enjoy that same restaurant quality at home!

Want to make a full fajita feast? Serve them up with some fluffy Mexican rice and refried beans. Don’t forget a cool and refreshing pico de gallo for that extra pop. My family goes crazy for these fajitas, so I always recommend making a little extra. They disappear fast!

Here’s what you’ll need:

The beauty of chicken fajitas is their simplicity. Just a few pantry staples and a quick trip to the store are all you need for a delicious meal in under half an hour. I love that the chicken is cut into bite-sized pieces, ensuring everything cooks evenly and quickly.

  • Olive Oil: This is my go-to for cooking the fajitas, but feel free to use vegetable oil or your favorite choice.
  • Chicken: Three pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs will do the trick. Cut them into bite-sized pieces for easy eating in the tortillas.
  • Fajita Seasoning: Making your own fajita seasoning is super easy and way more flavorful than the store-bought stuff. It’s just a blend of spices you probably already have on hand!
  • Bell Peppers: A mix of red, yellow, and green bell peppers adds a delightful pop of color and flavor to the dish.
  • Onions: Sautéed onions are a must-have in fajitas. They add depth of flavor and a wonderful texture to the chicken.

For Serving:

  • Flour Tortillas: Flour tortillas are the classic choice for chicken fajitas. You can make your own if you’re feeling adventurous, or grab a pack from the store.
  • Avocado: Fresh avocado slices on top of your fajita are a game-changer! Trust me, you’ll never go back once you try it.
  • Limes: A squeeze of fresh lime adds a burst of brightness and helps to elevate all the other flavors.
  • Cilantro: This is totally optional, some folks love it, some don’t. If you’re a cilantro fan, feel free to add a sprinkle on top of your finished fajita.

Putting it all Together:

There’s nothing fancy about making these sizzling chicken fajitas. Simply cook everything in a skillet and assemble your delicious creation!

  1. Cook the Chicken: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and half of the fajita seasoning. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink and set it aside on a plate.
  2. Sauté the Veggies: Add the bell peppers and onions to the skillet. Sprinkle with the remaining fajita seasoning and sauté until tender.
  3. Assemble and Enjoy!: Add the cooked chicken back to the pan and stir to heat through. Now comes the fun part – assemble your fajitas in warm tortillas and pile on your favorite toppings!
