Want Mexican food tonight, but feeling a little tired of tacos and burritos? Make this chicken fajita recipe. It’s a little like a burrito, minus the rice and beans — although you could add some if you’d like — and a step above a taco, thanks to the addition of onions and peppers.
  • 1 pound chicken cutlets, sliced lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 bell pepper, sliced
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • mexican cheese blend, shredded
  • salsa, for topping
  • sour cream, for topping
  • cilantro, for garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, season the chicken with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice, lime juice, garlic, and spices; set aside.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, onions, and pepper to a cast-iron skillet on medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until onions and peppers are softened, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Add chicken to the same skillet and cook for about 4 minutes on each side. Add chicken to the same bowl as the pepper and onion mixture.
  4. Place tortillas on the bottom of the cast-iron skillet, then top with chicken, onion, and pepper mixture, and Mexican blend cheese. Place in oven for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the tortillas have warmed through. Once out the oven, top with salsa, sour cream, and cilantro.
