Very good flavor. Everyone liked it. In the future, I’d personally cut back on the Cumin.
Has anyone made without cilantro? We are that family who doesn’t like it. ;)
Hi Nicole, you can easily skip the cilantro if you don’t like it.
Wow, awesome recipe! The entire family loved it!
I make this recipe once a week my husband and me we love it.
Thank you for this delicious yet simple recipe. The marinade is so flavorful. My family really enjoys this meal.
Don’t do this inside. Makes so much smoke. I am doing this outside next time. It was good but messy and smoky.
This was excellent! Grilled the chicken and it was delicious. Will definitely make it again and again.
What type of onion did you use? Yellow or white?
Hi Jeanette, you can use white, yellow, or red.
OMG this is the BEST marinade I’ve ever made! I used very flavorful limes and the smell was intoxicating! I only had dried coriander but it worked. I never thought of slicing the chicken in half and it made all the difference! I marinated it for 3 hours and the grilled it on the BBQ (didn’t take long) and then let them sit while I did the peppers and onions. Everyone raved about it and I can tell you this is now my go-to recipe!! I’m actually doing a double recipe today so I can have chicken for all our lunches this week. Thank you!!
They are so good that I don’t even mind taking the batteries out of all 4 smoke detectors in my apartment when I make them. Searing in a cast iron skillet is definitely key to their success. Caution: Remove cast iron skillet from stovetop before adding additional oil or you will risk catching the skillet on fire. I used canola oil and still almost had to call the Fire Dept. I use Flank steak for my beef fajitas. Expensive, but worth it. Super-fantastic recipe. Thank you, Elise.
Do you no how much protein ,carbs and fat in each serving ?
Hi, Ras! We don’t currently calculate nutritional information on our recipes. I’d suggest inputing the ingredients into a nutritional calculator like this one. Thanks!
This is a hit!!!!! I swear the best chicken fajitas ever. My family love it !
Hi Ras, I’m so glad you and your family liked it!
This recipe super easy to put together. I prefer sliced the chicken and then marinated overnight. Presiding was a mistake. Didn’t help with presentation but still tasted great…thanks
I Love How Juicy It Become. All My Friends Like It.
Great a regular in our dinner rotation
My family loves these chicken fajitas! I’ve been looking for a better way to make my fajitas rather than using leftover chicken and winging the spices. This marinade is a winner—Shall I say it?—Winner winner chicken dinner! And the cast iron skillet is the way to go! We grilled some chicken on the BBQ but family like the skillet cooked chicken better because the flavor of the marinade came through better. Thanks Elise!
I love this recipe. The marinade is perfect. The only thing I would add to the “extras” is your favorite cold beer. I will make this over and over.
They are INDEED the best fajitas EVER! We make them ALL THE TIME, mostly when we have company. I learned about meat’s need to rest, awesome! Thank you so much for this.
I made these tonight for my family(I’m a vegan so I didn’t eat them) My family loved them. I will definitely make them again
Wonderful! This is one of our favorites and on regular rotation at our house. The kids like it without the peppers, and we have even done it as a Whole30 recipe–with the addition of guac and without tortillas.
You could use a Bibb or Boston lettuce leaf instead of the tortilla.
