Blackstone Chicken Fajitas Recipe:
Blackstone Griddle Chicken Fajitas cook perfectly on the griddle. The chicken is coated with an easy fajita seasoning then cooked on the flat top. The charred flavor that the Blackstone gives the chicken makes them a family favorite.
Chicken Fajita is the perfect weeknight meal. We love the way the chicken comes out tender and juicy. The onions are perfectly cooked and how the red and green peppers add color to the dinner.
There are a variety of ways to serve this chicken fajita recipe. We love to top a soft tortilla with the chicken and peppers but we have also served over white rice. Both ways make an easy weeknight meal.
How to Make Fajita Seasoning:
We love to season the chicken with a flavorful seasoning. You can make your own fajita seasoning or you can use the seasoning packet from the store.
We love to make our own seasoning so we can adjust the ingredients. The seasoning blends that you buy at the store have additional ingredients that are not needed.
Making your own seasoning blend saves you time and money.

- Avocado Oil
- Limes, Juiced
- Fajita Seasoning (or try Chicken Fajita Marinade)

Blackstone Chicken Fajita Variations:
- 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 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 to add some extra spice to the seasoning. I would also top your fajitas with some slice jalapenos.
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:
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.
