Quick & Easy Skillet Chicken Fajitas Recipe Cooks in About 10 Minutes

Who says fajitas are only for the weekends? This easy chicken fajita skillet recipe is cooked on your stove top. Quick, easy and delicious! No grilled to heat up and you can stay inside where it's nice and warm.

Boneless chicken breast is cut into thin slices and then marinated in a mixture of chopped fresh cilantro, olive oil, dried oregano, chili powder, garlic powder and ground cumin for about 30 minutes (longer if you have the time). A sliced red and green bell pepper, onion and corn is cooked in a skillet and seasoned with chili powder and lime juice. The vegetables are removed to a plate so you can quickly cook the chicken in the same skillet. Add the vegetables back and you've got a winning skillet full of tender, juicy chicken fajitas.

Want to make this chicken recipe even easier? Use pre-seasoned chicken fajitas and skip the marinade. It's a time-saver if you just don't have the time. Serve these skillet chicken fajitas with flour or corn tortillas, guacamole or sliced avocado, sour cream, salsa, pico de gallo or your favorite Mexican side dishes.
