Classic Chicken Fajitas

  • Rating ****

Serves 4 to 6


  • 5 tablespoons Wild Oats Canola Oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium sized shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


Mix together 2 tablespoons oil, lime juice, cumin, cilantro and cayenne in a small glass dish. Add chicken to mixture and toss to coat completely. Marinate chicken in refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours for extra flavor, if possible.

Over medium high heat in a wok or large pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil until very hot. Add marinated chicken and stir-fry over high heat until chicken is white throughout. Place on plate and set aside.

Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to wok or pan and heat until very hot. Add peppers, onion, shallots and garlic; stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.

Return chicken and season with pepper. Toss until heated through, about 2 minutes. Serve with warm flour or corn tortillas, shredded cheese, sour cream, fresh tomatoes, jalapenos or guacamole.
