Recipe: Chicken Fajitas

We love Fajitas.. all kinds.. and Chicken Fajitas rank right up there…. Fajitas are so easy to make… you can have supper on the table in under 30 minutes.


I make my own seasoning and keep it in an airtight jar.. It’s a great seasoning to use for so many things. Click here for the recipe.

I love yellow and red peppers.. their flavor is much lighter and balances out the strong flavor of the green pepper… use any combination you prefer.

Sweet onions are really good with this.. but if you have yellow onions.. they will work well also.

If you don’t have a cast iron skillet.. any skillet will work. The advantage of a cast iron skillet is that it can get the Fajitas sizzling hot.

The chicken breasts I used were huge… so my chicken was in chunks more than strips.. use whatever you have available.

This recipe doubles easily.

This recipe is delicious over rice also.. if you don’t want to use the tortillas.
