Excellent marinade for fijitas. I nixed the cayenne pepper because I don't like spicy. I let the chicken marinade for 1 hour. As it was marinating, I cut up the veggies. I then placed about 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil in the cold skillet. I put the skillet in the oven and then let it heat up to 425 degrees. When the oven was preheated I added the veggies and raw chicken in the hot oil. Baked it for 30 minutes. Tasted just like what you'd get in a good Mexican restaurant.

By far, the best thing I've made since joining allrecipes. The spices blend beautifully and play off of each other. The marinade time of two hours was ideal. I'm not a big fan of cayenne, so I substituted Badia fajita seasoning and gave the marinade just a dash of cayenne. I will definitely make this again! Feel free to contact me with any questions. I'm always looking for foodie friends. My email is ljs4141@aol.com.

I cut my chicken into cubes and let in marinate over night. I stir fry the entire mixture! It's delicious!!
