How to Make Chicken Fajitas:

  1. In a gallon freezer bag combine the cayenne, chili powder, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and lime juice. Mix well then add in the sliced chicken and mix again. 
  2. Place the bag in the fridge to marinate for 1 to 12 hours. 
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with olive oil and add in the bell peppers, onions and jalapeño. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, mixing once. 
  4. Push the veggies to the sides and add in the chicken and marinade. Cook for 10 minutes flipping the chicken once. 
  5. Mix the veggies and chicken together and cook until the onions and bell pepper are soft and the chicken is cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes. 
  6. Serve hot with your favorite toppings, over corn or flour tortillas.

Nutrition and Calories in Chicken Fajitas

Not all fajitas are made the same, ours are extra low in calories, but still packed with flavor.

We did not include any of the toppings in this nutrition facts card, as it’s difficult to gauge how each person will top their homemade fajitas.

But if you’re looking to cut calories, I recommend choosing 2 corn tortillas, and skipping the cheese. While enjoying lots of salsa, a little bit of homemade guacamole, and Greek yogurt in place of sour cream.
