Give your chicken fajitas a taste of the Caribbean with this tasty recipe for Jerk Chicken Fajitas, made in only 20 minutes for an easy weeknight dinner!
It’s been almost 3 months since our trip to Jamaica, and I’m still dreaming of the Jerk Chicken we ate every afternoon by the pool at Couples Resorts!
After arriving home from the trip, I had about 1,564 ideas for recipes to make with Jerk Seasoning, but I decided to start with Jamaican Jerk Beef Patties and gradually work my way through the other 1,563! 😉
Well today folks, it’s time for a new Jerk seasoning recipe, Jerk Chicken Fajitas!
My boyfriend’s favorite food group is anything wrapped in a tortilla, (haha! But seriously, it’s so true!) with fajitas coming in at the top of that food group, so I decided to make him Jerk Chicken Fajitas for dinner after our trip.
They turned out so scrumptious, I knew I had to make them again for the blog!
The flavor of these fajitas is beyond delicious and it’s a fun new twist on chicken fajitas made in only 20 minutes!
- 4 tbsp olive oil (divided)
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 2 tbsp Jamaican Jerk Seasoning Paste
- 1 ½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into thin strips)
- ½ cup red bell pepper (julienned)
- ½ cup green bell pepper (julienned)
- 1 cup red onion (thinly sliced)
- 8 fajita tortillas (warmed)
- ½ cup honey lime dressing (click link for recipe)
Add 2 tbsp olive oil, lime juice, jerk seasoning and chicken to a large ziploc bag, toss to combine and set aside.
Add the remaining 2 tbsp olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the bell peppers and onion. Saute 4-5 minutes, then add the chicken, saute 5-6 minutes, then spoon into warm tortillas.
Top with sour cream or honey lime dressing.
I personally loved the honey lime dressing drizzled on top. I served that dressing with the Jamaican Jerk Chicken & Pork Meatballs I made last summer. Yum!
The boyfriend preferred the fajitas with his go-to fajita topper, sour cream. You could also add avocado or green chili salsa.
Really, the topping choice is up to you, part of the fun of fajitas, and you really can’t go wrong with any choice, except maybe chocolate sauce, that would be weird 😉
