Easy Chicken Fajitas

A healthy dinner fix is what you get with these Mexican fajitas!
Are chicken fajitas healthy? Yes! The ingredients used here are chicken meat with veggies marinated and further chicken can be grilled/oven-baked or skillet cooked to make this perfect healthy dinner.

What can I replace chicken with? You can very well use shrimp in this recipe. It will be equally wonderful. I have also shared a recipe for shrimp fajitas , do check that out.

This recipe calls for chicken breast meat, skinless and boneless which is cut into 1/2 inch or 1/4 inch thick chicken pieces. You can cut the chicken first then cook or grill the marinated chicken and then further cut the chicken.


A combination of chicken, onion, and bell peppers together works so well, and when further you top it with sour cream or salsa with cheese.

What is the difference between taco and fajita seasoning?

There is not much difference in both fajita and taco seasoning except that fajita seasoning has onion and garlic powder but taco seasoning has coriander powder in it.


Apart from this if you make the homemade seasoning mix like how I have used in this recipe, then even if you add some garlic and onion powder to taco mix it won't be any worse, or adding coriander powder to fajitas won't make them inedible.


Just go by what spices you love to add to your food or you can opt for store-bought seasoning mix.

What toppings go on fajitas?

You can serve these amazing spicy chicken fajitas wrapped with tortilla, and served with sour cream, cheese, pico de gallo, or salsa.

What do you serve with chicken fajitas?

You will love these Mexican fajitas with this amazing cajun butter grilled corn, authentic and best elote, shrimp quesadilla, or chicken taquitos.


Tips to make the best chicken fajitas:

  • You can bake the chicken with veggies arranging the chicken and vegetable mix on a baking sheet and bake till the chicken is done.
  • Instead of arranging the chicken on the skillet and cooking, you can grill the chicken and then cut the chicken.
  • I have used a homemade mix of spices for chicken fajita seasoning but you can use store-bought fajita seasoning too.
  • If you are using chicken breast then make sure you do not overcook the chicken as breast meat tends to get dry and chewy.
