How to Make Chicken Fajita Fiesta! (enough for a small party)

Step-by-Step

  1. Put cut up chicken, peppers and onion in large bowl or ziploc baggie. Mix up marinade in medium bowl, and pour over chicken mixture, tossing/mixing to coat all thoroughly. Marinate in fridge for 4-6 hours. Drain off excess marinade. In one (or more) medium-hot frying pans, add a little olive oil, then add chicken mixture. Stir-fry til chicken is done. Should take only about 8-12 minutes depending on how big you cut your chicken strips and how hot your pan is. Warm flour tortillas in microwave (about 30 seconds on high, 3-4 at a time) or in oven wrapped in foil. Serve with toppings of choice. Tossed salad, spicy cornbread, spanish or mexican rice, refried beans/dip, chips, etc., are nice accompaniments.
