Added the cayenne as suggested by others. Next time a lil more, I like the heat! Found myself with no beef broth! Subbed in Simply Orange orange juice ..... What a winner !!!!

Pretty tastey. I just added a bit of mesquite flavored Liquid Smoke for that great Tex-Mex grilled flavor. I wouldn't bother with that if I were going to grill the meat, but in the skillet, it helped with the illusion.

Followed the recipe exactly and marinated for 8 hours. The lime zest works well and goes great with the cilantro. This was okay for us. I should have added something hot.

My family enjoyed this....3 yr old it too...will make again. I followed the directions and let it marinate for about 1.5 hrs..cut chicken into chunks and stabbed it with a fork to help the flavors seep in.

Made this last minute for dinner last night - my chicken only marinated for ~20 minutes and the flavors really came together well. I didn't have fresh cilantro, so I substituted dried. Didn't have lime zest, so I used a splash of limeade that was in the fridge. Served this chicken with sweet onion and poblano pepper strips and salsa verde :) yum. Thanks!

WOW! This is an outstanding marinade. I followed it exactly and then covered it and put it in the fridge for 2 hours and grilled later to put in Fajita Salad. LOVED it! Will make again and again!

Pantry-clearing day: We substituted 2 tsp Lime Juice for Lime Zest, Chicken Broth for Beef Broth, frozen "tube" cilantro for fresh, and leaf marjoram for oregano. Despite all that, our chicken turned out great! We will definitely make this again.

Delicious! The flavor of this marinade made our chicken fajitas taste like they came from a restaurant. We used the beef broth with our chicken strips and it worked out great. I didn't have a lime, so used lime juice from a bottle and we only had time to marinate them for 2 hours...it still tasted great!! Thanks for posting!!

Great marinade for fajitas, and one I will be using again. My BF and I love Mexican, and have it often, so this recipe will be used again and again!

Simply put, I followed the directions exactly. I feel blessed now that I had all the ingredients on hand. I've never made fajitas before, and this marinade seasoned my chicken and veggies delightfully. My personal opinion: reserve enough to pour over veggies and meat and cook down to an amount of sauce that suits your eaters. Wow!
