One of my very favorite things in life is fajitas—I seriously cannot get enough of them—so since it’s summer (for a few more glorious days anyway) I thought I’d change things up a bit and combine two of my favorite things (fajitas and grilling) and come up with something amazing….Grilled Chicken Fajita Kabobs!

Grilled Chicken Fajita Kabobs

 

012

 

Ingredients

 

4 chicken breasts diced into small chunks
2 large green peppers cut into bite sized chunks (red and yellow peppers work well too and look gorgeous)
1 medium to large onion cut into chunks (same size as peppers and chicken)
1 package of fajita seasoning
1/4 tsp. vegetable oil
1/4 cup (or less) water
bamboo (or metal skewers) 

 

Directions

 

1.  Combine water, vegetable oil and fajita seasoning and divide into 2 shallow baking dishes, set aside. 
2.  Cut chicken into bit size pieces (small enough to cook quickly, but large enough to fit securely on the skewers) and add chicken to one of the shallow dishes, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. 
3.  Cut peppers and onions into bite size pieces (the same size as the chicken), add peppers and onions to the second shallow baking dish, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
4.  Heat grill to appropriate temperature, I usually put my food on when the grill has reached 350°.  *If using bamboo skewers place skewers into warm water for at least 30 minutes before putting on the grill.*
5.  Place chicken, peppers and onions on skewers, leaving room at the top and bottom to allow for easy pickup, alternating between the three until skewers are full.
6.  Place skewers on the grill until chicken is cooked through.  This usually takes just a couple of minutes per side.
7.  You can either eat the chicken fajita kabobs on the skewer or slide the chicken and veggies off onto a warm flour tortilla and add your favorite toppings (this is the way I prefer).

There you have it…a super easy, somewhat quick, and completely delicious dinner that’s a yummy variation of a Mexican favorite!  Bon App├ętit !

    1. I don't know about the pineapple (I'm not a big fan) but red peppers would be SO good in this...I didn't have any when I made mine or they would have been there.
