For Chicken Marinade:

  •       2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  •       3 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
  •       2 Tbsp. Orange Juice
  •       2 Tbsp. Lime Juice
  •       2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
  •       1 Tbsp. Mustard
  •       1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
  •       1 ½ Tsp. Ground Cumin
  •       1 Tsp. Garlic Powder 
  •       1 Tsp. Onion Powder
  •       1 Tsp. Salt
  •       ½ Tsp. Smoked Paprika
  •       ½ Tsp. Dried Oregano
  •       ¼ Tsp. Pepper


  1. For chicken marinade: In a large zipper bag, combine all the Chicken Fajita Marinade ingredients. Remove 2 tablespoons to use later for vegetables. Add chicken breast fillets and toss well to coat.
  2. Marinade in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours up to overnight. When it’s time to cook, let chicken breast fillets sit at room temperature for 15 – 30 minutes.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook chicken breast fillets undisturbed for 2 – 3 minutes, or until nicely browned on one side.
  4. Turn chicken breast fillets over, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook for approximately 2 – 4 more minutes until chicken breast fillets are cooked through.
  5. Remove to a cutting board, cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing into strips.
  6. For vegetables: Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the leftover juices in the skillet along with 2 tablespoons of reserved fajita marinade. Heat over medium high heat and add onions and sauté for 1 minute.
  7. Add bell peppers and sauté for 3 - 4 minutes. Add the chicken breast fillets and toss to coat.
  8. Serve Chicken Breast Fajitas hot with tortilla bread aside and any desired topping like guacamole.
