Chicken Fajita Marinade Mix is my go to marinade for fajitas and much more.
To continue with my Mexican inspired recipe week, here is my recipe for Chicken Fajita Marinade Mix. The strong flavors in this marinade are chili powder and lime, the perfect flavor to marinade chicken breasts in for fajitas.
It is important to plan ahead if you use this marinade, as the chicken needs to marinade for a minimum of 3 hours. Trust me, it’s worth the wait. The chicken will be more tender and juicy.
You certainly don’t need to use this marinade just for fajitas, you can easily just grill the chicken and serve it on a salad, by itself with a fresh salsa served along side or in Chicken Tortilla Soup.
- 1 tsp. oregano
- 1 ½ tsp. cumin

- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
