Chicken Fajitas

This is one of our default meals. We usually have the ingredients on hand, and everyone loves it. If fact it's one of Dave's favorite meals. I often stock up on bell peppers when they are on sale and then slice and freeze them. Admittedly, they aren't quite as crisp frozen, but still tasty, and it beats paying $1.50 a piece in the winter time.

Recipe adapted from Cancun Cafe

2 lbs chicken breasts, cut into strips
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tsp season salt
3 garlic cloves, chopped

1 sliced onion
2 bell peppers, assorted colors, cut into strips

1 dozen flour tortillas

Marinate chicken in bowl with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic approximately 20 minutes. Pour into preheated pan over medium heat. cook until chicken is browned. Add vegetables and cook 1-2 minutes more. Serve wrapped in flour tortillas with sour cream and guacamole.

We always put Mexican rice in ours too.


  1. I like the tip for freezing the peppers. They can get pricey.

  2. These look quick and easy. I don't know why I have never made fajitas before. I will give these a try.

  3. We had these tonight. So yummy and so easy...my perfect combination.

  4. I finally made these tonight. We all loved them. I know I will be making these often. Thanks.

  5. These have become our go-to fajitas. Tonight we tried them with lime juice instead of lemon juice. Very yummy!
