Chicken fajitas have been a staple in our house now for over 12 years.

This was the very first meal I ever made for Tom when we were dating. It has been a staple in our house now for more than 12 years. This meat mixture can be served either in a tortilla, on top of nachos, over rice, on a salad or just in a bowl with all the yummy toppings. The marinade is delicious also with pork or steak. 

Chicken Fajitas


1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast 

3 limes juiced 

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 

1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke 

2 teaspoons garlic powder 

1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning 

1/4 teaspoon salt 

2 tablespoons vegetable oil 

2 bell peppers-cut into strips

1 large onion-cut into strips 


1. Mix lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, garlic powder, lemon pepper and oil together. 

2. Place chicken in the marinade and let set over night. 

3. Take chicken out of marinade, pat dry and cut into strips. 

4. Heat more vegetable oil over medium-high heat, add chicken and sauté. 

5. Let the chicken cook for about three minutes and then add the peppers and onions. 

6. Add a sprinkle of salt, pepper and garlic powder to the pan. 

7. Sauté everything together until the chicken is cooked through and has a little brown on it. 

Enjoy in whatever fashion you like!
