While chicken fajitas taste great on their own, toppings can make all the difference. From a dollop of sour cream to cheese or avocado slices, fajitas are a fun way to serve customizable options for your family or a large party! A few of my favorite toppings are pico de gallo and guacamole.
I sliced my chicken into strips to get more seasoning in every bite. Then quickly sautéed and removed with plans to finish cooking later. I cooked my veggies separately in same pan to have more control over how long to cook each items. Did both of those steps earlier in the day, then reheated all together at serving time. It was wonderful. I had cilantro in my garden and also garnished with avocado and a dollop of sour cream. Excellent dish! One night served with rice, another night served in flour tortilla. Nice way to mix things up when eating solo.
Oh my goodness, this was phenomenal. The recipe is absolutely perfect. I made it exactly as written except I increased the seasoning by 25% and added a couple dashes of chipolte chile powder, cayenne pepper, and I through in a diced jalepeno with the bell peppers and onion. I cannot believe how something so simple and easy can result in such wonderful, delicious flavor. Hands down, the best fajitas I have ever made, and I have made quite a few. Served on warm flour tortillas with sour cream, shredded Mexican cheese blend, salsa, homemade pico, and an extra lime wedge. The chicken was so tender- everything was just perfect. I had seconds, son had thirds lol, and super picky daughter actually finished an entire fajita and admitted that it tasted great. Thank you so much for this amazing recipe. I have printed it out on cardstock, punched holes, and filed it in my favorites binder. :)
The other change is to fix a problem of my own making. I do the veggies first, then the chicken, and mix back together in a separate dish. This is only because I am weird and like to cook this dish using a smoking hot pan to get some blackening on both the chicken and the veggies. If you do this (blackening) with the chicken first you end up with loose black bits that get all over the veggies.
This recipe was easy and delicious. I cut up my chicken, seasoned it and let it sit while I cut up veggies. Cooked the chicken on our blackstone grill, took it off, did the veggies and added it all back together. Served with some black beans. YUM!
Make the guacamole: halve, peel, and pit the avocado. Scoop it into a small bowl mash with the remaining cilantro, a squeeze of lime, and as much remaining diced onion and jalapeno as you like. Season with salt and pepper.
In the same pan you cooked the vegetables in, heat ½ tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook, tossing, until browned, 3-4 minutes. Once cooked, add the peppers, onions, ½ teaspoon chili powder, and a squeeze of lime to the pan. Cook 30 seconds, until fragrant, then remove from heat.
