The Best Mexican Chicken Fajitas Recipe- Cooking Chicken Fajitas My Way

Tonight we are having chicken fajitas, my
way. These fajitas are so versatile! You can use anything. You can use seafood, beef chicken, turkey or even tofu. Tonight is fajita night and welcome to Tess’s Kitchen. I have about a pound to pound and a half of sliced up chicken breast and I’m going to add the juice of half of this lemon. In goes a teaspoon of chili powder,
aboutt a quarter teaspoon of cumin and a quarter teaspoon of black pepper. Going
to add about a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and give it a good mix.
See how big the slices are? And now for the rest of the ingredients
we are going to be cooking. I have one green bell pepper sliced, one red bell pepper sliced, some white onions sliced, and one seeded finely diced
jalapeno, 1 tablespoon of minced garlic and black pepper. I knew I wanted some kind of relish or
sauce on top. I had these tomatoes and they needed to
used so i thought I’d make a little salsa. Here I have about a cup of finely diced
tomatoes, about a half a cup of jarred roasted red bell peppers, one small
can of green chilies, and one tablespoon of finely diced red onion. We’re just going to put everything
in the bowl and give it a good mix. Adding a little bit of salt and pepper. Here is a little drizzle of extra virgin
olive oil. And remember that other half of lemon, I’m going to add the juice. I’m also going to add half the
chipotle pepper minced up fine. I’m going to put it in the refrigerator and let it
chill until we get the cooking done. Another thing you can add to the salsa
would be some chopped-up cilantro. We don’t like it so I don’t use it. Now for the cooking. I’m using my
large cast iron pan and I’m adding about 2 to 3 tablespoons of oil and then
adding the chicken. I’m going to cook for 5-8 minutes until the chicken is done. It
won’t take long. I did not slice the chicken very thick. This smells awesome! You can find this recipe and more of what I’m cooking on Facebook. Please remember to
come visit me! Now I’m just going to scoop out the
chicken pieces and set them to the side.
Look at all that goodness on the bottom of the pan and we’re going to use it! Adding about a tablespoon of oil and all
the vegetables and going to give it a good stir. I added some salt and pepper and now I’m adding about a quarter cup of water to
help the vegetables cook. Now the minced garlic. I’m going to let it cook… a minute or two to get those flavors going. Now my chicken is going back into the pan and don’t forget to scrape in all those drippings. Give it a big stir and once it’s all
thoroughly mixed, it is done! The sliced white onions that i used did not hold up very well during the cooking but they needed to be used. You probably better using a sliced red
or yellow onion. And now the fun part, the assembly! i lightly heated the tortillas on both sides in my cast iron pan. For the fixin’s I have my meat mixture, I
have my salsa, some leafy greens, sour cream, a little bit of avocado slices and
a squeeze of lime. This is what I happen to have but you
can certainly add the toppings of your choice. Maybe some fresh parsley, cilantro, basil…. maybe add some black beans, corn, rice. Of course, the chipotle pepper and
jalapeno are optional. We love the heat and I love the
smokiness that the chipotle pepper gives. There you go! D you want to take a bite?! And there you have it! These are chicken
fajitas , my way. I hope I inspired you to make your own,
