Why We Love This Recipe

The chicken and veggies cook easily on the griddle for a ton of flavor for the best fajitas. The ingredients are simple and can be changed to what you prefer.

Variations Ideas

  • Change the Tortilla – We usually use flour tortillas, but you can use corn tortillas instead of flour if you prefer.
  • Change the Meat – This recipe works great for steak fajitas.
  • Taco Seasoning – If you have taco seasoning packet instead of fajita seasoning, you definitely use it instead.
  • Chicken Options – We normally use chicken breast but you can easily use chicken thighs.
  • Cooking Options – If you prefer to cook chicken fajitas indoors, make them in your cast iron skillet.
  • Oil Options – When cooking on a Blackstone Griddle, you need to use a high smoke point oil. We try to use vegetable oil or avocado oil instead of olive oil.
  • Spicy Options – You can add additional chili powder or cayenne pepper to add some extra spice to the seasoning. I would also top your fajitas with some slice jalapenos.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you Cut Chicken before or after Cooking Fajitas?

We slice the chicken prior to cooking. But you can also cook the chicken breast and slice after cooking.

What Temp Should Griddle be for Fajitas?

We cook Fajitas over Medium High Heat which is about 450 degrees.

Can I use Frozen Vegetables?

We prefer to use fresh peppers and onions because they are more flavorful. They cook perfectly on the griddle and come up with the charred smokey flavor.
If you use frozen vegetables they take longer to cook and could end up mushy.
My determining factor is what I what vegetables I have on hand. But I try to have fresh pepper and onions available since I use them in a lot of recipes.

How to Store Leftovers Fajitas

We love having leftover chicken fajitas. They taste amazing the next day served over rice or by themselves. Store the fajitas in an air tight container and refrigerate. They will last about 3 to 4 days.

How to Reheat Chicken Fajitas

We recommend reheating leftovers in the microwave or on the Blackstone Griddle.
