What You’ll Need

Any fajita seasoning mix can be used, but I prefer the one below. It is healthy and simple to prepare. It makes it easy to create delicious dishes such as this one.

  • Olive oil: 2 tablespoons of olive oil form the base of the marinade.
  • Lime Juice To get the acidity and fruity taste, you’ll need two lime juice.
  • Fajita seasoning: 2 tablespoons add tons of flavor to your fajitas. A pre-mixed packet of commercial seasoning can be used.
  • Chicken: I use chicken breast meat in this recipe. 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts about 1/2-inch thick is all that’s needed.
  • Bell Peppers, I used two red bell peppers and one yellow pepper. The green onions were also used. You can substitute any color for one, such as substituting an orange one for the one you have.
  • Onion: One large onion, cut in quarters (smaller pieces will not grill properly).
  • Tortillas This recipe can make enough tortillas to make 8-10 fajita-sized ones.

How To Make Grilled Chicken Fajitas

This recipe is great for a quick weekend or weeknight dinner, whenever you don’t feel like cooking on the grill. You don’t have a grill? It’s not a problem! This recipe can be made in a cast-iron skillet, grill pan, or cast-iron skillet.

  1. Marinate the chicken. Mix the olive oil, lime juice, and fajita seasoning in a bowl. Stir to combine. Add the marinade to a large zip-top bag and then add the chicken breasts. Then seal the bag and place it in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes and up to an hour.
  2. Prepare the Peppers. Cut the peppers in half. Discard the membranes, seeds, tops, and membranes.
  3. Prepare the Grill. Preheat the grill to Medium Heat. Clean and oil the grates of your grill.
  4. Grill Everything Take the chicken out of the zip-top bag. Shake off any liquid. Discard the marinade. Place the chicken, peppers, and onions on the grill. Turn the chicken, peppers, onions, and chicken occasionally until they are no longer pink. This should take about 15 to 20 min. When the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F, it is ready.
  5. Place ingredients for serving. Let the chicken, onions, and peppers cool on the grill for five minutes. The tortillas can be grilled for approximately one minute on each side. Serve the chicken, peppers, and onions on tortillas.
  6. Enjoy!

How To Store And Reheat Leftover Fajitas

  • You can store any leftover fajitas in an airtight container and then refrigerate for up to 3 days.
  • Place the chicken in a covered skillet on low heat. Don’t overcook the chicken or it will become dry.

Can I Freeze Fajitas?

  • The chicken can be frozen! You can freeze the vegetables to make soups and stews, but they will get soggy.
  • You can freeze leftovers by placing them in a bag and pressing as much air out as possible before sealing. These can be frozen for up to three months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before reheating.
