Recipe adapted from: BlogChef
I was craving chicken fajitas today. I've seen this recipe over at BlogChef and drooled over it many times; So, I finally made it. Other than the noted changes, I went by his recipe exactly. So good and yummy!
8 flour tortillas (I used wheat)
1.5lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 ½ teaspoons seasoning salt
1 ½ teaspoons cumin
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion (sliced)
1 medium green pepper (sliced)
Optional condiments (can use some or all)-
Salsa - I used a fire roasted salsa - it added an extra depth of flavor
Cheese - I used Monterey Jack
Cilantro, to taste
I also added green onions, to taste
Step 1: Slice chicken into small strips. In a large bowl mix garlic powder, seasoning salt, cumin, chili powder, red pepper flakes, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and lemon juice. Add chicken strips and toss to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Step 2: In a skillet add 2 tablespoons of oil and sauté onions and green peppers for 3 minutes or until the vegetables have reached your desired tenderness. Remove from pan and set aside.
Step 3: Add more oil to the pan if necessary. Add chicken strips and sauté until no longer pink inside (fully cooked). Add vegetables back to the pan and toss with the chicken. Spoon mixture onto flour tortillas; add optional condiments (if you want) and serve.
