Delicious Chicken Fajitas

These chicken fajitas can be made both with purchase fajita seasoning packets or Homemade seasoning. If you ask me I simply recommend making easy homemade fajita seasoning because the flavor you will get is so terrific. You can make the fajita seasoning yourself with just a handful of ingredients. The benefit of making your own fajita is that you can simply omit those spices which you don’t want and even you can add some other spices like ground cumin which again enhances the flavor.

You can use a combination of yellow and red peppers if you like or simply use red pepper and even you can add sliced poblano pepper as well. You can add whatever you like.

What is a Fajita?

A fajita is any grilled meat which is basically served with colorful bell pepper strips and onions, and wrap them in a traditional flour (or corn) tortillas or lettuce leaf to make it a low carb meal.

The term fajita mainly referred to skirt steak, the cut of beef. Popular meats today also include other cuts of beef, chicken as well as vegetables instead of meat. In restaurants, the meat is usually cooked with bell peppers and onions. Popular condiments include sour cream, guacamole, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, salsa, pico de gallo, refried beans, and diced tomatoes.

Ok, now let me share one secret thing that you may add to get that incredibly flavourful chicken that’s fragrant, savory, and balanced with a hint of sweet. The ingredient that I am talking about is orange juice, when you mix it with other ingredients it simply enhances the flavor. But believe me, you will not get any hint that you have added orange juice in it.

What to Serve with Chicken Fajita?

There are many options, Sometimes I top my chicken fajitas with Homemade Salsa, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream, or simply add some veggies such as carrots, avocados, cabbage, guacamole. Just keep switching the toppings every other day to know what exactly you and your family like.
