Notes and Tips

To top off this Chicken Fajitas dish, I recommend that you add a squirt of lime juice, it is going to incorporate a fresh touch that will facilitate its digestion and make it lighter. You can also add to the sauté a bit of chopped cilantro.

Cut the ingredients into thin, uniform strips: To cook the ingredients evenly, it's important to cut them into thin, same-sized strips. You can use a vegetable cutter or a sharp knife to do this.

Season the chicken and vegetables appropriately: Adding spices like cumin, oregano, chili powder, and salt to the chicken and vegetables is key to getting delicious flavor. Make sure to season generously and mix well so that the spices are evenly distributed.

Cook the ingredients separately: To avoid uneven cooking of the ingredients, it's best to cook the chicken and vegetables separately.

Don't overcook the chicken and vegetables: To maintain the chicken and vegetables' soft and juicy texture, it's important not to overcook them. Cook the chicken until it's golden on the outside and well cooked on the inside (but don't overdo it so it doesn't dry out), and the vegetables until they're soft but still crispy.

Heat the tortillas properly: To make the tortillas soft and flexible, it's important to heat them properly. You can do this on a hot griddle or pan for a few seconds on each side, or in the microwave covered with a damp towel.

Serve the fajitas with side dishes and sauces: To give an extra touch of flavor and personality to your fajitas, serve with side dishes like guacamole, sour cream, grated cheese, chopped cilantro, and hot sauce. Your guests will be delighted!

And there you have it! Delicious and colorful chicken fajitas that will not only delight your taste buds, but will also be the center of attention at any gathering.
