Easy Fajitas Recipe

Don’t we all love Mexican food? I’ve yet to meet someone who doesn’t. The country south of Texas has numerous dishes that are popular with fans, including tacos, burritos, Frijoles y Arroz, and much more. This week, we will be sharing this easy fajitas recipe, a popular and delicious dish in Mexico. Chicken fajitas don’t need a complicated recipe. With juicy, marinated chicken breasts and the addition of bell peppers and onions, you can prepare a tasty midweek dinner.

You will need

  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • Bell peppers (colour of your choice)
  • Red onions
  • Olive oil
  • lime
  • Fajita Seasoning
  • Hot sauce (optional)

Step one

In a bowl mix 3 tbsp of Fajita seasoning, a tsp of hot sauce, 4 tbsp of olive oil, the juice of a lime, and a pinch of salt and pepper. To prepare the chicken, slice it into strips and put them in the bowl. Slice your peppers and onions into long thin strips, add a pinch of salt, and set them aside. 

Step two

Heat a griddle pan until it is smoking hot. Add the marinated chicken to the pan. Keeping everything moving over high heat for roughly five minutes will ensure the chicken ends up nicely charred.

Step three

Remove the chicken from the pan and set it aside. Place the chopped pepper and vegetables into the pan (with a tablespoon of oil) and sauté until the onion strips are soft and the peppers are browned. Add the chicken into the pan again and stir together until the flavours and seasonings are combined.

*Pro tip 1: Avoid crowding the pan while cooking the chicken and vegetables so that they develop a charred look. If your pan isn’t big enough you can cook it in two batches.

*Pro tip 2: To check the chicken is cooked, find the thickest part of the chicken and tear it in half. If any part of that strip is raw, keep cooking until it is fully cooked.

Step four

Toast the tortillas in the pan and serve. Serve it with any toppings of your choosing, such as guacamole, avocado, lemon, sour cream… the choice is yours to make it a wonderful, delicious, and luscious dinner.
