Chicken Fajitas

July 2, 2012

Growing up we had chicken fajitas pretty frequently. Often we used a fun little fajita kit. The other day I had a hankering for fajitas and thought to myself, “hmm, I wonder what is actually in fajita seasoning?? It would be really cool to just make my own.” A little sleuthing and here’s what I came up with (and it is darn tasty too).

You will need:

  • 1 lb chicken breast, diced
  • 2 bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • 2 t chili powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t paprika
  • 1 t sugar
  • 3/4 t chicken bouillon
  • 1/2 t onion powder
  • 1/4 t garlic powder
  • 1/4 t cayenne
  • 1/4 t cumin
  • 1/4 t ground oregano
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Tortilllas, lettuce, shredded cheese and salsa

Then you will…

  1. In a large non-stick skillet, cook the chicken over medium heat until just starting to turn golden. Add the peppers and onion and cook until just starting to turn tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine well the cornstarch, chili powder, salt, paprika, sugar, bouillon, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, cumin and oregano.
  3. Stir the spice mixture into the chicken mixture. Continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Add in the lime juice and stir.
  5. Serve with tortillas, cheese, lettuce and salsa.
