Recipe by Huge
"This is a great basic fajita recipe which can be tweaked to accommodate the whole family. Add some black beans or Spanish rice. Easy to spice up or down. Top each serving with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro and spoonfuls of sour cream, taco sauce, and guacamole."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Easy recipe and easy to tweak! Since I didn't have lime, I used lemon (lime is best but I didn't have it on hand unfortunately) - I omitted the cayenne (kids) and added garlic powder. While the chicken was marinating I started cutting up my veggies, I didn't have a red onion but yellow did just fine. Once the chicken was cooked , I tasted... it needed some salt and a little more chilli powder, cumin and garlic. AH yes that did the trick! :D IF you don't like the dryness of chicken breasts you can mix it up and cut up both chicken breasts and boneless skinless chicken thighs. YUM! Thank you for sharing this great recipe!
We liked it, but we didn't love it. I let it marinate overnight, so I was expecting big flavor and it just wasn't there. It was definitely quick and easy, but I doubt I will make it again.
Love this- it's a staple.
Enjoyed preparing this for the Recipe Group. I did enhance a bit, added more seasoning and added some smoked paprika as well. I also had a zucchini on it's last legs, so I cut into strips and added, too. Simple and delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe with AR!
I made these hoping for much more. But I found that the chicken didn't have much of the yummy marinated taste that I thinking it would have. Albeit, I didn't have lime juice, so I used lemon juice, but i figured with the cumin, paprika, chili powder and cayenne it would be quite flavourful. Maybe I need to up the amount of spices. Will try again, however.
Great flavor! Really enjoyed.
Loved that this was all done in one pan and it was simple enough. My son thought it was a bit boring (gave 3 stars). A few shakes of some hot sauce did the trick for me. I also added a couple more peppers. Thanks Huge.
Recipe Group Selection: 03, May 2014 ~ Simple and delicious. Loved that this was a one pan deal! The marinade had very good flavor, but the next time I think I will double it, to give the meat a tad more flavor. Along with the red peppers, I add yellow, orange and green peppers. Served this with corn-on-the-cob and a fresh fruit salad. We enjoyed dinner very much. Thanks Huge, for sharing your recipe.
