Chicken fajitas – A delicacy to fix weeknight dinner dilemma!

Chicken fajitas recipe

Last Updated January 4th, 2019

Satisfy your Mexican food cravings with healthy chicken fajitas…

Simply stated, chicken fajitas are just chicken and vegetables folded into a tortilla. However, the best thing about chicken fajitas is that they are easy to cook and are filled with healthy goodness.

Is it a Texan or Mexican food?

Texans will certainly like to put a claim over fajita, but in reality, the credit goes to Mexican ranch workers. In the late 1930s, these ranch workers lived in West Texas, close to the Tex-Mex border.

As and when a steer got butchered, the ranch workers got the most undesirable parts to consume as a part payment for their wages.

Having to survive on that only, the workers quickly learned how to put a tough cut of steer or beef to good use.

Thus, we can call fajita a Tex-Mex delicacy, a perfect blend of Mexican ranchero and Texas cowboy foods.

In the U.S., grilled skirt steak is called fajitas while the Mexican counterpart is known as arracheras (which are marinated skirt steaks that are grilled over high heat).

Did you know? – August 18 is celebrated as Fajita day!

Chicken fajita healthyComing back to the present day, we find that the fajita has steered a bit away from its original recipe.

Now, the term fajita describes anything and everything that is cooked and served by rolling up the contents in a soft flour tortilla.

Well regardless of the story of its origin, chicken fajitas do not cease to amaze its lovers with the wide variety of flavors it can offer.

How to make the chicken fajitas even healthier?

Chicken fajita grilled chickenChicken: Don’t fry the chicken, instead bake or grill it.

Tortillas: Use whole wheat tortillas instead of flour tortillas to accomplish a healthy substitution. The good thing about whole wheat tortillas is that they have less number of calories.

It is also a known fact that food made using whole grains can help in reducing the risk of diabetes and heart diseases. Whole grains contain dietary fiber that helps in improving blood cholesterol levels.

Such improvement in blood cholesterol levels, in turn, helps in lowering chances of heart diseases and type 2 diabetes.

Green peppers and salsa: Moreover, green peppers provide an ample amount of vitamin C to meet your daily requirement. Additionally, try to add a lot of vegetables to your fajitas and top them with salsa rather than sour cream.

Half-cup of salsa can be made with chopped raw tomatoes, chili peppers, and onions. This counts as equivalent to one serving of vegetables.

Also, it is a low-calorie alternative to sour cream which contains about 193 calories (in 100 grams). Salsa contains roughly about 40 calories (in 100 grams).

How to make it tastier?

Chicken fajitas recipeAlthough cooking chicken along with onions and peppers tastes good, you can make it even better through marination.

The secret here lies in the use of lime juice for marination.

The benefit of using lime for marination is that it perfectly complements flavors of veggies and the meat.

However, you need to marinate it for 1-3 hours and not more than that.

Another thing you will have to keep note of is that onions and peppers should be cooked for a short time.

This ensures that the natural sugars in them quickly caramelize and at the same time keep the onions and peppers remain crisp.

A Final Note

Chicken fajitas open a world of mouth-watering recipes which are healthy too.

So why not make some right now?
