Review: Chicken Fajitas - cjs - 12-08-2011

I cut this recipe out years ago (90s) from the Sac. Bee where it was from the L.A. Times. Finally made it today and what great flavors. The only change I made was, we sprinkle the fajitas with feta, so will change the nutritional values a little. But, sure good!
Serves 4 - more like 6 - I have lots of leftovers.

1 lb. skinless and boneless chicken breast, cut crosswise into 1/2” slices
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced (I used red)
1 Serrano chili, minced
2 tomatoes, diced
1 cup white mushrooms cut in half
1 tsp. pasilla chili powder
Crushed hot dried chilis
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
Corn tortillas

Spray large wok with nonstick cooking spray. Heat until very hot. Add chicken and quickly sauté, stirring, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from wok and keep warm.

If needed, spray wok again with nonstick cooking spray. Add garlic, onions, green pepper and Serrano chili. Sauté until vegetables are tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

Add tomatoes and mushrooms. Cook 2 to 3 minutes. Return chicken to wok. Stir in chili powder. Season to taste with salt and-crushed hot dried chilies.

Simmer just -until hot. Stir in
lime juice. Spoon onto tortillas to serve. Fold up taco-style to eat

Sounds excellent Jean! I love feta on fajitas and tacos.

I wish William liked Tex Mex more. WHHHAAAAA! Sounds good, Jean. I may just have to slip some in on him.
