Chicken Fajitas

Chicken Fajitas

This is a different take on chicken fajitas. I wanted to use crunchy cabbage and creamy guacamole for different flavors and textures, the result was amazing… I LOVE this dish. It was a tasty dinner that was fun to make.

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 chicken breasts, sliced into thin bite size pieces
  • 1/2 sweet yellow onion, sliced thinly
  • 1/4 yellow pepper, sliced thinly
  • 1/4 red pepper, sliced thinly

Combine all marinade ingredients in a bag and mix thoroughly. Add chicken, onion and peppers. Marinate for 5-6 hours. Heat a skillet over medium high heat coated with cooking spray. Once the pan is HOT, add chicken, onions & peppers. Sauté for about 7-8 minutes.

Cilantro and Lime Cole Slaw Salad:

  • 2 cups of green cabbage shredded (or buy the bagged cole slaw mix with carrots)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 – 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Dash of garlic powder

Make this salad right before you serve the tacos so it stays crunchy. Combine all ingredients until mixed thoroughly.

Other Ingredients:

Cook tortillas (dry) in a hot pan for 45-60 seconds on each side. You want them soft & pliable. Top the tortillas with chicken, onions, peppers, cilantro & lime cole slaw salad, cheese, salsa, guacamole & sour cream. Enjoy.

    My peppers and onions are going to be plain, because the two breasts I used were pretty big and soaked up all the marinade. Can’t wait to make this for dinner!

    Hi, Pam,
    This recipe looks wonderful, but I have one question: do you serve it like in the photo or do you wrap them?

      I wrap them like a taco when I eat them. I hope this helps.
