How to Make Grilled Chicken Fajitas:

Chicken Fajita Marinade

  • Mix orange juice and olive oil in a shallow dish like a pie plate. Whisk in fajita seasonings.
  • Add 2 whole, boneless, skinless chicken breasts and turn to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate until ready to grill, up to 4 hours.

Peppers and onions for grilled fajitas

  • Slice bell peppers and onions into thin strips. Red, yellow and orange are my favorites but green bell peppers work great too.
  • Mix sliced vegetables with olive oil and fajita seasonings.

Wood grill fire

  • Prepare the grill to a 300° fire with pecan or hickory wood for the best smoke flavor.

Marinated Chicken on a grill fire

Sliced Chicken Breasts
