Easy Chicken Fajitas

Nuvita Biscuits

This is another recipe that gives your kids assembly options. Cook onions and peppers separately, and set them out in separate bowls, so the children can choose which vegetables they want on their fajitas.


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil, divided
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut across into strips
  • 1 recipe Fajita Seasoning, divided (see below for recipe)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 large onions, slivered
  • 3 bell peppers (one each of green, yellow, and red is prettiest, but not essential), slivered
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 fajita-size flour tortillas, wrapped in a cloth and warmed in the microwave 1 to 2 minutes
  • Salsa and sour cream for serving (optional)


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken strips and cook, stirring a couple of times, until almost cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Add half of fajita seasoning and water, mix well, and let chicken finish cooking. Transfer chicken to a bowl; cover to keep warm.
  2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in skillet until hot. Add onions and peppers; cook, without stirring, until tender and some caramelized brown bits begin to show up in pan, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir; add garlic and remaining fajita seasoning. Let cook about 2 more minutes. Stir vegetables into seasoned chicken. (Or serve the vegetables separately.)
  3. Serve the fajita mixture on warm tortillas with salsa and sour cream on the side, if using.

Fajita Seasoning


  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons chili powder (vary according to how spicy you like it)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside and use just as you would the seasoning packet that comes in those taco kits at the store.

    I have to make the mexican quesidilla recepie for my spanish product and was wondering if goyas tortillas are really the best or are the Mission tortillas better. Also the recipe calls for refried beans and cheddar cheese and jam. Is ham the best choice os meat. Also should I add some home made salsa into the quesidillas cuz i dont know if that will taste good with refried beans. If you have any easy salsa recipe that includes fresh tomatoes list it or give me the site. thanks

    I’m sick and tired of the standby meals that we always have, not to mention that my boyfriend is obsessed with his george foreman and uses it EVERY NIGHT! What should we make tonight. It needs to be a chicken dish though, because that’s all we have.

Also let me know that we need a Cooker to cook Beef or it can be cooked in other ways too?

    Right now, I only eat chicken because my mom forces me to. She said that otherwise I won’t get enough protein and her other reason is that we don’t buy enough vegtables.

    Thanks x

    I have 1 pound of boneless chicken breast that I’d like to bake tomorrow. I was thinking of just putting some garlic and butter and lemon juice on it, but how long do I bake it for?

    Also, if you have some other ideas besides the garlic, butter, and lemon juice that would be easy and cost-friendly, that would be great.

    I hate pork and never really ate it growing up, but I have to cook it for dinner tonight. What is a quick and easy way to prepare them and make them taste like something (good) other than pork?
    I didn’t buy the meat. My roommate did and he won’t be home until late and asked me to cook something, and the only meat we have is the pork.

    I realize it’s still going to taste like pork – I was just wondering what kinds of things would mask the flavour the most.
