Skillet Chicken Fajitas

Skillet Chicken Fajitas

Watch the video for this recipe:

Skillet Chicken Fajitas are a great colorful dish perfect for lunch or dinner. Thin slices of marinated chicken with colorful peppers and thin onion strips, cooked quickly in a hot skillet and served immediately with  warm tortillas and various toppings are simply a crowd pleasure and a perfect dish whenever your friends come round.


For chicken fajitas I’ve used homemade tortillas which I totally recommend as they are simply delicious and healthier than store-bought ones.  To save time tortillas can easily be made in advance.


Use your favorite toppings to serve along, either cheese, guacamole or simply avocado slices, salsa, pico de gallo and lime juice. Enjoy!
