Microwave Chicken Fajitas

A great copycat recipe from a local Mexican Restaurant you can make in minutes that will spice up your family taco night!

The Best Microwave Chicken Fajitas

Here is  a super fast, yummy recipe for Chicken Fajitas that has been a huge hit in my house! We have a Mexican restaurant we frequent a lot named Papas & Beer.  My husband & I really love sharing their fajitas. So, I have set out to create a recipe that we can make at home that is just as enjoyable. So, The Best Microwave Chicken Fajitas was born.

What you will need to make

Microwave Chicken Fajitas

Green Pepper

Red Pepper

Onion

Taco Spice Mix

Boneless/Skinless Chicken Tenders

Tortillas, corn or flour

Fajita toppings of choice:

Avocado

Cilantro

Lime Juice

Sour Cream

For these Chicken Fajitas you’ll need to take your green and red peppers and cut them into slices and throw them in a 2.5 qt dish that is microwave safe (and has a cover). Then add your onion slices as well.

Sprinkle well with a taco seasoning packet.

Use either a package of chicken tenders or cut 2 chicken breast in long strips.  For this recipe, I used chicken breast cut because that’s what I had in the refrigerator.

Shake the seasoning over the chicken well. Cover and put in the microwave for 10 minutes on high.

Serve with fajita wraps & cheese. Add anything you like really!

My favorite part is this is a one dish recipe! These Microwave Chicken Fajitas are so good! We love Papas & Beer’s fajitas and these are even better.  Normally, I won’t eat the peppers when they are served in a restaurant because I don’t like peppers but I eat them in this Microwave Chicken Fajitas recipe all the time.

This is a favorite “go to recipe” that my husband and I really love!
