We love chicken fajitas at our home. Or should I say that we all found a way to love them: my daughter devours the chicken and nothing else, my son spreads barbecue sauce on his (which is strange, but actually tastes very good), and my husband and I ate our all fixins like normal people. Such is the real-life family dinner, right?
When I think of fajitas, what comes to mind is the hot, steaming cast iron skillet of my favorite Tex-Mex restaurant. It is difficult (and honestly a little dangerous) to replicate that at home, but it is possible to make fajitas as good, if not better. I marinated and grilled the chicken for a smoked, charred flavor and then sauté the onions and peppers on the stove until they caramelize and sweeten. While the list of ingredients seems long, these fajitas are easy to make and you can do all the preparation ahead of time, so all that’s left to do at dinner time is to grill the chicken. Plus, they’re fun perfect for having the whole family share everything at the table or an informal dinner.
