Chicken Chipotle Hot Sauce Fajitas

My family couldn't get enough of these delicious fajitas I made for dinner. The thing I did differently than ever before was to marinate the boneless chicken breast meat in a lemon, olive oil, and chipotle hot sauce before cooking it. It gave the chicken just the right spicy kick I was looking for.

Chicken Chipotle Fajitas served with a side of rice.

Ingredients for Marinade
  • 5 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • ground cumin
  • cilantro flakes  
  • 1/8 cup of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of chipotle hot sauce
  • Slice the chicken breasts into strips and set in a dish for marinating. 
  • Season the chicken with cumin and cilantro flakes coating well.
  • Add the lemon juice and olive oil and gently toss.
  • Coat the chicken with the chipotle hot sauce (you can use less or more depending on your taste) Cover and set in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
While the chicken is marinating I like to get all of my other ingredients ready to go.

Guacamole & Fajita Fixings

  • 1 large green pepper sliced
  • 1/2 of a very large sweet white onion sliced thick
  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 1/4 head of iceberg or romaine lettuce chopped 
  • 2 cups of cheddar cheese grated
  • 10 large flour tortillas  

For the guacamole I mashed 1 large avocado with 1/4 cup of sweet red onion together with lemon juice, cilantro, and ground cumin.
Instruction for cooking the chicken
Chicken, onions and green peppers

  • When you're ready to cook heat a wok or large frying pan and add the chicken with all the marinade and stir fry until cooked. 
  • Push the chicken up the side of the wok and add the onion slices. Cook for 3 minutes and then add the green pepper slices. Cook for 3 min or more if you like your green peppers cooked longer. 

Construct your fajitas or have everyone make their own. Serve with a side of sour cream, more hot sauce and or salsa. ENJOY!
