Chicken Fajita Recipe

Is there anyone who doesn’t love chicken fajitas? They are one of my favorite easy meals! I love the combination of tender chicken and crisp peppers and onions. They’re fancy enough for a date night in, but easy enough for a busy weeknight. Since it has been pretty hot in my neck of the woods lately, we’ve been doing a lot of grilling outside, and it finally occurred to me that I could make my beloved fajitas on the grill! I marinated the chicken in my favorite marinade (see below for the recipe!), threaded it onto skewers with some fresh vegetables, and grilled them to perfection. They turned out totally amazing, and were even easier than making them on the stove!

Chicken Fajita Marinade

I’ve tried a lot of chicken fajita marinades, but the one I used with these skewers is my very favorite! It’s super simple to make, and adds a ton of flavor. To make the marinade, just mix a packet of fajita seasoning with 1/2 cup of zesty Italian dressing. So easy and so delicious!
