Margarita Fajitas Chicken

Margarita Fajitas Chicken created by DuChick

This recipe was inspired by a meal I had at a local restaurant. The marinade is also great if you want to leave the chicken breasts whole and grill out in the summer. Of course, a good margarita or sangria are my beverages of choice with this dish.

ingredients

directions

  • In a medium bowl, combine liquid ingredients.
  • Add chicken strips and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  • (Overnight works best, if possible) Heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet (it works best for blackening the chicken).
  • When thoroughly heated, add the chicken and cook until just starting to turn golden.
  • Add the pepper and onion rings and cook until chicken starts to blacken and onions start to caramelize.
  • Heat the tortillas in a tortilla warmer.
  • If you don't have a tortilla warmer, I've found that putting the tortillas in a glass pie dish with a damp cloth covering them in a microwave for+/- 2 minutes works for me.
  • Place 1 or 2 strips of chicken with some of the grilled onions and peppers in a tortilla.
  • Top as desired with remaining ingredients.
  • It's kinda fun to let people create their own.

    Very bland taste, need to add some spices to the marinade

    I have to say I was very leary about the corona but it came out great. I think I found a new fav marinade for chicken.

    Fabulous taste, simple ingredients and easy to throw together! Instead of a Corona, I used a can of the King of Beers (Bud). I used a very large skillet and I'm sure I tantalized the neighbors with the aroma of my Mexican kitchen tonight! My husband has requested we try this with steak strips next time.

    This dish is well worth the effort. DH would not let me use one of his Corona's. I had to use a Budweiser instead. The rest of the recipe I followed to a T. This is really good and I will make it again. Served it with recipe #41168. Finished the meal off with a margarita using recipe #98221. Thanks, for posting Lori Fields
