Balsamic Fajita Chicken Wraps To Go

These are "fajitas" that you can make up ahead of time - you make the filling then put it in a thermal container and bring it along with you to picnics and fill your tortillas on the spot. The meat and other ingredients are cubed/diced, rather than in strips, to make it easier to use as a filling. I like adding vegetables into meals whenever I can, so there are some ingredients in this you might not usually see in fajitas! ;) Prep time includes marination. (This recipe is also an entry for the June 2002 "Ready, Set, Cook" contest at RecipeZaar.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the vinegar, lime juice, 2 Tbsp olive oil, and minced garlic in a Ziplock bag or non-reactive bowl.
  2. Add cubed chicken breast and let marinate in refrigerator for an hour or two.
  3. In a large skillet, melt remaining olive oil and butter together.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade.
  5. Stirring occasionally, sauté the chicken, onion, bell peppers, mushrooms, and broccoli slaw pieces over medium-high until chicken is cooked completely and the veggies are to the desired texture (some people prefer them crisp and some like them softer), which will take about 7 to 10 or so minutes.
  6. Reduce heat, add in the remaining ingredients except the avocado, sour cream, and flour tortillas and simmer on medium-low for another 5 minutes.
  7. Stir in the avocado and sour cream; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  8. If you're taking these to a picnic, put the fajita mix into a thermal container to keep it warm; on site give each person a tortilla and pass around the filling.
  9. If you're eating them at home, fill the tortillas with the mixture, garnish with grated cheese, and enjoy!
  10. Makes 4 to 6 servings, depending on how hungry you are; you can also use smaller tortillas and an additional chicken breast to get more servings, if you like.
  11. You can, of course, use more or less of any of the veggies to get a mixture that*you* enjoy!

Julesong I followed the ingredients to the letter (after all this is a recipe competition) and it was great! You suggested in your instructions that some people like their veggies crisp, I do so I sauted the chicken with the mushrooms & onions only, rinsed and drained the beans and added them . added the spices, then 2 minutes before serving I added the peppers & broccoli, I didn't add the sour cream & avacado but just put them on the finished fajita along with the cheese and salsa. Neat idea to take them on a picnic!I I really enjoyed your recipe and wish you luck in our little competition Thanks Julesong

I made this for supper and we thoroughly enjoyed this. I followed your directions exactly. I sauteed the chicken and vegetables about 8 minutes and the vegetables were moderately soft (how we like them). I just discovered broccoli slaw at our grocery and love it. Worked very well in this recipe. My family and I thought this was a wonderful fajita wrap and we will make it often. Thanks.
