Grilled Chicken Fajitas

It’s no secret by now Mexican food has my heart, more than anything I love being able to cook my cultural food. It truly is my favorite food to cook and it’s so dang delicious. These grilled chicken fajitas are perfect for lunch and dinner. 

Serve these up in warm tortillas with some Fresh Corn Salsa for the perfect summer meal! 

We like to serve ours with guacamole, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, and warm tortillas. A great low carb option is to serve these over a bed of romaine lettuce, yum! After grilling the chicken and veggies you can dice it all up and toss it or serve as is! 

How to make Grilled Chicken Fajitas

The fajita marinade is so easy to whisk together and doubles as a base to keep the chicken juicy and delicious. 

Fajita Marinade: Whisk all the ingredients till combined. Stick chicken in marinade and coat chicken. Let sit for 30 minutes – 4 hours. 

Veggies: Cut peppers in halves or quarters to grill, that way they don’t slip through the grates while grilling. Slice the onion 1/2-inch thick rounds, do not separate rings. 

Best toppings for chicken fajitas

Serve these up with your favorite taco toppings. Salsa, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, lime wedges are my go-to choices. If serving on a bed of greens still top with all your favorites for the best festive fajita salad.
