Chicken Fajitas

    40 mins

    Chicken thighs are used in this recipe, but skinless breasts could be used instead. Be careful not to overcook, as the result could be rather dry chicken. Serve with warm flour tortillas, spicy salsa and sour cream.

    Wow, I cant believe that 2 out of the 3 top reviews for this recipe are so negative! I think the people who rated those reviews as "helpful" never even tried this recipe! SHAME ON YOU!!!! IT IS GREAT! I prepared the recipe as recommended, but with chicken breasts. And i have to say I totally loved it! I was worried about such a short cooking time for the chicken, but it turned out just right. And that splash of lemon at the end, incredible, dont leave it out! Hope that you try this, you wont regret it!  -  07 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is the best fajitas recipe I have found. I substituted about 1/2 T of lime (instead of the lemon) and added it to the marinade. I also let the meat simmer in the juices - this makes sure that it won't be dry but juicy instead.  -  17 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought the soy sauce in fajitas was a little strange but because of all the wonderful reviews I put my doubts aside. I shouldn't have. This was an odd tasting fajita. Slightly oriental in flavor. I'm from the Southwest and I've had a lot of good versions of fajitas. These are not good.  -  28 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
