It’s a bit strange that I’ve never posted a chicken fajita recipe before considering just how much I love them. They are almost always my choice when dining at a Mexican restaurant. We also make them at home quite frequently, but the kind we used to make was sort of a cheater version that wasn’t even remotely authentic or very similar to the restaurant variety. The moment I saw this recipe, I knew it was going to blow our old method away.
The chicken is marinated briefly with a mixture including lime juice and Worcestershire sauce, and then cooked on the grill with the onions and peppers. The combination of marinating and grilling made the chicken amazingly delicious. In fact, I think Ben’s exact words were, “This chicken is a miracle,” but that might have been the margaritas talking ;). Even the tortillas themselves are warmed on the grill, giving them nice grill marks and a little extra flavor. The whole meal was also excellent as leftovers. I’m already thinking about pulling out the grill in winter to make these because I don’t think I can go for months at a time without them. In case you’re looking for a way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, look no further! I can’t wait to have them again.
