HOMEMADE CHICKEN FAJITAS



Homemade Chicken Fajitas image

Making homemade fajita seasoning is a lot easier than you might think, and you probably already have the ingredients in your spice cabinet. Simply combine a mixture of chili powder, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper, and voila, you're ready to make fajitas. Brighten up this dish with a mixture of red, orange, yellow, and green peppers. Top with your favorite garnishes. We use sour cream, pico de gallo, and guacamole.

Time 5h35m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 12

1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1 ½ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into strips
4 tablespoons olive oil, or more as needed
2 bell peppers, sliced
1 onion, thinly sliced
8 (6 inch) flour tortillas

Steps:

  • Whisk chili powder, paprika, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder for fajita seasoning together in a small bowl.
  • Trim chicken of any excess fat and place in a large, lidded bowl. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with about 3/4 of the fajita seasoning. Toss, adding more oil if necessary, until coated. Poke chicken with a knife to allow penetration of seasoning and oil. Place the lid on the bowl and shake until chicken is thoroughly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator, shaking every couple of hours, for 4 to 6 hours.
  • Remove the marinating bowl from the refrigerator and let sit on the counter until chicken is room temperature, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Make 2 stacks of 4 tortillas, and wrap each one in aluminum foil.
  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add peppers and onion. Stir in remaining fajita seasoning and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • While vegetables are cooking, place tortillas in the oven to warm. At the same time, grill chicken, turning halfway through, until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • To assemble fajitas, fill warmed tortillas with chicken, peppers, and onions.

  • MARINADE: combine the ingredients for the marinade along with 1 ½ teaspoons salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Use a whisk to combine before adding the jalapeño slices and the chicken breast. Let marinate covered in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours. Remove from the refrigerator and allow the chicken to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Set a large cast iron skillet or nonstick skillet over high heat and let heat up for a couple of minutes. Drizzle in a teaspoon of oil and add half the chicken to the pan and cook on each side for about 3-5 minutes or longer depending on the thickness of the chicken. If the pan becomes too hot, reduce the heat to medium-high. Remove the chicken from the panand allow to rest for several minutes. Cooke the remaining chicken the same way. Slice the chicken into thin slices.
  • FAJITA VEGGIES: Add another teaspoon of oil to the pan over high heat, add half the onions and bell peppers. Let the veggies begin to sizzle and toss as necessary. You can drizzle in some of that chicken marinade if you want to flavor the veggies but be sure to cook them well. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Remove the veggies to a plate and cook the remaining veggies the same way.

  • Pull the fajita meat from the marinade and lay flat on a cookie sheet while you heat your grill, or begin your charcoal.
  • When the grill is as hot as it can be, or the charcoal has turned gray, place the meat down in the middle of the hottest part of the grill. Close the chamber or place the lid on the grill. If you're using charcoal, make sure you vent the lid so that the air will feed the coals.
  • Sear the meat 5-7 minutes on one side and then check it. If it's not seared continue to cook it on one side until you can get at least a decent sear on the first side. Flip it, and cook it 4-6 minutes. When you gently poke the meat with your finger it should still be a little squishy. This will give you about a medium cook on the meat, and it will continue to cook as it rests.
