Spicy Sesame Chicken Fajitas

"I haven't actually tried this recipe. It comes from The Well-Filled Tortilla Cookbook which was a Christmas gift. I have tried several of the dishes from the book and all have been good. Now that summer is here, I can do these on the grill."

Ready In:




  • Between 2 sheets of wax paper, flatten chicken breasts 1 at a time to 1/8 inch thickness using heavy saucer or other pounding device.
  • (I use my wooden rolling pin for this.) Continue until all chicken breasts have been flattened, refrigerate until ready to cook.
  • When ready to cook, sprinkle both sides of the chicken with sesame seeds, cayenne and salt.
  • Set aside while preparing grill.
  • If using a charcoal grill, allow coals to burn until they are mostly covered with white ash and a few red spots show through here and there.
  • This should take about 40 minutes.
  • When fire is ready, place chicken on grill and cook until no longer pink but still mosit in center, about 1-1/2 minutes on each side.
  • Cut chicken into then strips.
  • Serve with warmed corn tortillas, chopped avacado, shredded lettuce, salsa, sour cream.

    The sesame seeds were an unexpected pleasure. I made them on my grill pan and will certainly make these again.

I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
