Easy Chicken Fajitas Recipe

We all know that I am a huge fan of Mexican food. I could pretty much eat it every day of the week and be happy.

Something like Southwest Baked Chicken is a super simple dinner that gives you all that great spice and melty cheese that you think of when you think Mexican food.

When we go out for Mexican food I pretty much always order chicken fajitas. They are probably one of my favorite things.

Well, I also order a margarita. But we are talking about dinner here, right?

The spicy, sizzling chicken and veggies that I get to assemble and top how I want just gets me every time.

This chicken fajita recipe uses a homemade fajita seasoning. If you want to make them even easier you can use the store bought packet.

But it takes 2 minutes to put the fajita seasoning together, and there are no other extras or weird things in there, so I like to make it myself.

There are all different chicken fajita recipes out there. You want to make it all in the oven all on one pan? Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas are a great alternative.

And I am a sucker for a good copycat recipe, so I love this Copycat Chili’s Chicken Fajita’s recipe.

These easy chicken fajitas come together in just minutes with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. They are sure to turn taco night into something special. 

I think what makes these chicken fajitas special is the fajita seasoning recipe. It has the spices that you know and love from Mexican food.

You can add heat with some cayenne pepper if you want, but I left it out there. I like to top my fajitas with a spicy salsa or fresh pico de gallo for the heat.

How to Make Fajitas

Chicken fajitas are really easy to make! You really just need a hot pan and it does all the work.

I mix the fajita seasoning recipe together and then toss over the thinly sliced chicken.

Once you have a super hot pan you add the oil to the pan to get it nice and hot. Then just toss everything into the pan – the chicken, peppers and onions.

It all cooks really quickly, because the chicken is so thinly sliced. You don’t want to over cook it or the chicken will get dry.

Once it is cooked you are done. Just serve with warm tortillas and your favorite toppings on the side.

So the next time you are looking to take your taco night up a notch or even just want to do something other than basic chicken for dinner this chicken fajita recipe is a must!

The chicken gets such great flavor from the seasoning. Plus you get to top however you want!

Someone in your family doesn’t like avocado, that is fine they don’t put any on theirs, but you can put extra!
