Being born and raised in Texas, I have probably eat chicken fajitas at hundreds of different restaurants, no less than 1000 times, and this recipe doesn’t disappoint!
I also like to just grill chicken fajita meat and veggies, and then use them for healthy meals through out the week, like salads and burrito bowls.
2 lbs chicken breast boneless, skinless
1/4 cup vegetable oil extra virgin
2 tbsp fajita seasoning (homemade or store bought)
2 tbsp lime juice fresh
To make marinade, whisk together the vegetable oil, lime juice, and fajita seasoning.
Poke chicken all over with a fork. Place the chicken in a dish or zip top bag and pour the marinade over the chicken to cover completely. Refrigerate for up to 4 hours, with a minimum of 30 minutes.
Heat the grill to medium heat and brush with oil to prevent sticking. Place chicken on the grill and cook for 4-6 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Cook to an internal temperature of 165°F.
Once done, remove chicken from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Then serve warm. Enjoy!
