We loved this quick and easy fajita recipe. I did marinate the chicken for an hour in a mix of the juice from 2 limes, 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped cilantro, a tablespoon canola oil and a couple dashes of hot sauce. When it came time to sauté the chicken, I added the marinade to the skillet along with the chicken. The added flavor of the cilantro and lime made this dish right on par with the fajitas we get in our local restaurants here in New Mexico. Using the prepackaged onions and bell pepper strips made this recipe so much easier. Instead of Birdseye, though, I used Trader Joe's Fire-roasted Onions & Bell Pepper Strips, as I shop there weekly and it was more convenient. The results were delicious! This is now my go-to recipe the entire family loves. Muchas gracias!

I used 3 bonless breasts which is over the amount called for in order to feed 6 of us. I subbed my own homemade taco seasoning for the cumin and salt. Served on flour tortillas with rice, beans, and avocado. Tasty!


This makes a quick and easy meal and tastes delicious! The only seasoning I had was Taco Seasoning I from this site, so I sprinkled it on my chicken before browning it. Then I added more to the veggie mixture when I added it in. My husband loved this and added hot pepper sauce to his. I added plain Greek yogurt to mine. I served these fajitas with Best Spanish Rice.
