Chicken fajita recipe||minimal oil maximum taste

Fajiatas are the perfect weeknight dinner. Minimal prep and minimal cook time means less mess more taste.

For making perfect chicken fajitas, taking chicken breast or chicken thighs is not so important.

This one is personal preference, although my favourite option is chicken thighs. You can’t beat naturally juicy thigh strips in a tortilla wrap.There’s no right or wrong. Charred edges can absolutely be achieved with both cuts.

Many people authentically like to sear the chicken on a cast iron pan. If you do so make sure you have properly seasoned the chicken or it will stick to bottom

I generally love to bake and grill my chicken. It’s hastle free and easy.
