Chicken Fajitas

If you’re like me, you struggle to make moist, flavorful fajitas. That’s why I was so thrilled when I concocted a recipe that was able to deliver amazing fajitas. You won’t be disappointed!


  • 3 chicken breasts, sliced 1/2 in. thick
  • 1 can adobe sauce
  • 2 T lime juice
  • 1/3 cup canola or olive oil
  • 6 T cilantro
  • 1/2 cup red onion
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 T brown sugar (optional)


Combine all the marinade ingredients in a blender and puree. Slice the chicken breasts lengthwise to create fillets that are no more than 3/4 in. thick, and add them to a dish or Ziploc bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken, and jostle the chicken around in the bag to coat all surfaces. Remove as much air as possible from the bag (if using). Refrigerate for 1-4 days.

To cook, heat a skillet and a tablespoon or two of canola oil to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off any excess. Cook for approximately 5 minutes per side or until the chicken develops a light brown crust. Slice across the grain in 1/4 in. wide strips, and serve with tortillas, grilled peppers and onions, and sour cream.
