How To Make Marinated Chicken Fajitas:

These Tangy Chicken Fajitas are marinated to ensure juicy, flavorful chicken, peppers and onions.

Chicken and Veggies in Ziploc Bag

Place cubed chicken, sliced onion and sliced green pepper in a gallon-sized resealable bag.

Mixing bowl with Marinated Chicken Fajitas marinade

In a mixing bowl, whisk together vinegar, lime juice and salad dressing mix.

Chicken and Veggies in Ziploc bag with marinade

Pour over chicken and vegetables and seal bag.  Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Chicken and Veggies in skillet

After chicken and vegetables have marinated, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and saute until vegetables are soft and chicken is cooked through.

I simply pour the entire bag of chicken, vegetables and marinade into the skillet.  Some of the marinade will still be left in the skillet after cooking, so using tongs or a slotted spoon to get the chicken out of the pan will work best.
