Good - I didn;t follow all of the steps, though. First I substituted chili powder instead of the cayenne, and also added the same amount of cumin. Also, I cut my meat into small pieces before marinating, and then didn't marinate so long (I actually put it into my vacuum sealer for a few minutes after it marinaded for 1/2 to 1 hour). I then dumped the meat and marinade into the pan and cooked till the meat was barely done, and then added the veggies right to that until they were barely done. (The marinade was doubled, and I had lots of veggies :) Oh, yes, an I used chicken.

THESE WERE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! we were short on time so we cut the meat up first and then marinated it for about a half an hour and it worked great. I would like to have been able to marinate it for longer but it still tasted amazing! awesome recipe!!! we will definately make this again!

My family loved this recipe. It has become an instant repeat for us. Didn't have to change much just added more garlic.

The flavor of these is outstanding. We went to dinner at the Outback one night and used our leftover prime rib from dinner in this. Wonderful! Thanks so much for posting - we'll be making these again - and again.

Seriously great. Best homemade I've ever had and better than some restaurants as well. I've made this for others too, who then requested the recipe. I've made the chicken in the crockpot (for ease) and on a frying pan (with some grill lines on it since we don't have a bbq grill). Frying pan is way better. I still liked the chicken in the crockpot, but it wasn't quite the same.

These were delicious! Instead of grilling the meat I sliced it up & cooked it in my cast iron skillet with a little olive oil. Loved the browned edges on the chicken.

Much better than store bought packets and can be made with ingredients on hand.

So good! We aren't fortunate enough to have a Chili's nearby, so we only eat there about once a year when we are in Pittsburgh. It is really nice to be able to recreate something that is a rare treat at home. I think these tasted just like Chili's Fajitas. I love the slightly American barbecue taste on these. I used chicken that was marinated for a little over 24 hours and I served them with Veronica's Easy Spanish Rice. Thank you for this great little recipe Robbie Rice!
