Spicy chicken wrapped in warm tortilla with onion and peppers.
"Perfect! Made these for lunchtime and this easy recipe did the job better than I expected, I got applause! I dislike overmuch 'nouveau' ingredients like truffle oil or basalmic in foods like these. Keep it clean, simple, and authentic and you have got a winner. This is by far the best chicken fajita recipe on BigOven; I know because I browsed them all!"- JRowler

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wrap the tortillas in foil and heat in oven for 15 minutes or until warm.
Meanwhile, pour the hot sauce over the chicken strips and toss to evenly distribute the sauce. In a small bowl, mix chili powder, cumin, salt and garlic powder. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the chicken strips, tossing them to evenly coat the pieces. Set aside.
In a large frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil and fry the onion over medium heat, about 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned and softened.
Set onions aside and using the same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil and fry the pepper strips, about 7-8 minutes. Add peppers to the onions.
Using the same skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat and cook the chicken strips, stirring frequently for about 5 to 6 minutes.
Mix the chicken strips with the onions and peppers. Serve with warm tortillas, salsa and sour cream. Have guests assemble their own fajita to avoid tortillas getting soggy and garnish with wedge of lime.

dee265 1 month agothis is so delicious. I use the Mexican bottle of hot sauce found in the Hispanic foods aisle, it adds a different flavor than just regular hot sauce. We love this recipe so much that we make tacos and enchiladas using this base recipe.

Lab1119 10 months agoOnly giving 4 stars because I had to change recipe due to what I had on hand. Used 1 yellow and 1 orange pepper, franks red hot cayenne sauce instead of hot sauce and due to the difference in sauce I only used half of the chili powder thatthe recipe called for. It was awesome. Husband ate it up!

Kmcgraw09 1 year agoThese fajitas were flavorful and filling. I could only eat one for dinner. This made enough for two meals (for two adults).
Findmeol99 1 year agoGreat recipe. I used chicken tenders. And deglazed with white wine. Also had Basmati rice with Cilantro and lime
kelleyday 1 year agoThis recipe was very good but i did double the hot sauce and the salt needs to be cut in half. If it wasnt for the full salt it would definatly be a 5 star.

SKlinetobe 1 year agoTried this last night and my husband and I couldn't get enough. Not only was it unbelievably delicious it was also so simple, easy and fun to make (and it was pretty to look at with all the colors too!). My husband doesn't like Mexican food but he had seconds and saved what little left overs we had to take for lunch. Thank you so much for this recipe!!!
