"Delicious fajita marinade for chicken or beef. Makes enough marinade for about 2 pounds of meat. Try it with shrimp too, just reduce the marinade time from 2 hours to 30 minutes."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Excellent marinade for fijitas. I nixed the cayenne pepper because I don't like spicy. I let the chicken marinade for 1 hour. As it was marinating, I cut up the veggies. I then placed about 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil in the cold skillet. I put the skillet in the oven and then let it heat up to 425 degrees. When the oven was preheated I added the veggies and raw chicken in the hot oil. Baked it for 30 minutes. Tasted just like what you'd get in a good Mexican restaurant.
I followed the recipe exactly and it did produce an edible grilled chicken but it did not taste like fajitas. The only real flavor that came through was garlic - and it was definitely too much for us. This would be much better served on a salad with fruit (like oranges and apples). If we have again, the recipe would just be a base and I'd add other seasonings like chili powder, more cumin, some onion powder, etc. Oh well, not every recipe will be to our tastes. Thanks for sharing.
By far, the best thing I've made since joining allrecipes. The spices blend beautifully and play off of each other. The marinade time of two hours was ideal. I'm not a big fan of cayenne, so I substituted Badia fajita seasoning and gave the marinade just a dash of cayenne. I will definitely make this again! Feel free to contact me with any questions.

I also fried the veggies in the marinade. I used left oil which was okay.
I cut my chicken into cubes and let in marinate over night. I stir fry the entire mixture! It's delicious!!
Made as written. Fajitas turned out very good and chicken breast stayed moist. Will likely make again.
Excellent marinade! Not a fajita flavor though. Will be using this again and often.
Excellent marinade! I halved the amounts for 1 lb of chicken breasts. I also added a tsp of chili powder. This will be my new "go to" recipe for fajitas.
