Grilled Chicken Fajitas

Grilled Chicken Fajitas

This easy Grilled Chicken Fajitas recipe was super healthy and the perfect way to use my new grilling basket.

Fajitas in a restaurant usually come in an oil filled skillet, but these are light and flavorful without all the grease.

Summer grilling recipes that the whole family loves are hard to come by, so this one is a keeper.

There are soooo many great fajita seasoning blends to chose from, I got this flavorful one on Amazon HERE!

How to make Grilled Chicken Fajitas

First slice your veggies and put them into a bowl.

I had two smaller onions, a red bell pepper, and some jalapenos.

Then slice 1 1/2 pounds of chicken breasts and add those to the bowl along with olive oil, fajita seasoning, kosher salt, and pepper.

Then preheat your grill to medium high heat with an open grilling basket.

And carefully transfer the seasoned chicken and veggies into the grill basket.

This will cook for about 15 minutes, tossing it all together several times with tongs.

In between tossing the chicken and veggies, I set out a toppings bar for my family to create their own fajitas.

During the last minute, squeeze some lime on the fajitas.

And grill the tortillas for a few seconds per side.

Serve them in the grilled tortillas with toppings of choice such as cheese, lettuce, sour cream, salsa, and hot sauce.

Or enjoy a low carb or Keto friendly dinner just like this without the tortillas!
