Chicken Fajitas
Chicken fajitas with onions, sweet peppers, green onions, and other ingredients.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 boneless chicken breast halves, cut in thin strips
  • 1 medium onion, cut in wedges
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 mild green or red chile peppers, seeds removed, sliced
  • 1 sweet red bell pepper, seeded and cut in strips
  • 1 sweet green bell pepper, seeded and cut in strips
  • 1 zucchini, trimmed, cut in strips
  • 8 flour tortillas, warmed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • guacamole
  • 6 to 8 green onions, trimmed, sliced


Heat the oil in a heavy skillet; cook the chicken strips over high heat, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, or until cooked. Drain and serve.

Add the onion, garlic and chile peppers to the oil in the pan and sauté over high heat for 2 minutes. Add the bell peppers and zucchini; cook over high heat for 4 minutes, or until the vegetables have begun to have a blackened look around the edges.

Return the chicken to the pan and heat until sizzling hot. Serve right away, with warm tortillas, sour cream, guacamole, sliced green onions, and chopped tomatoes. Serve with hot cooked rice and refried beans, if desired.
Serves 4.

This recipe for fajitas is simple and simply scrumptious! My belly is very happy right now. Thank you, recipe-writer!!! Note: you might want to warm up the tortillas in a different pan (very low heat, not for a lot of time) a little bit before the veggies are done cooking, then wrap them in a kitchen towel. Mine were still hot that way. Mmmm. I fully reccomend this recipe!
