Stir-Fried Chicken Fajitas Recipe

Stir-Fried Chicken Fajitas Recipe

I developed this recipe one evening when I was hungry for fajitas but didn't want to light the charcoal grill! That makes the preparation a little different from traditional chicken fajitas...but our family likes these better.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Cook: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinned chicken breast halves cut in thin strips
  • 3/4 cup bottled Italian dressing
  • 1 small mild onion, sliced, separated into rings
  • 1 small green pepper, sliced in strips
  • 1 small red pepper, sliced in strips
  • 1 small yellow pepper, sliced in strips
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Flour tortillas
  • Picante sauce
  • Sour cream


  • 1. In heavy plastic bag, combine chicken strips and dressing; refrigerate several hours or overnight, turning bag occasionally. Drain.
  • 2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat; stir-fry chicken strips and onions for 2 minutes. Add pepper strips and mushrooms; cook and stir until chicken is done and peppers are tender-crisp. Season with garlic salt, lemon juice and salt and pepper as desired. Serve in warm tortillas. Top with picante sauce and sour cream. Yield: 4 servings.
