Chicken Fajita Lime Marinade...

This is a fantastic marinade to kick your fajitas up a notch.

Fajita Lime Marinade

  • Juice of 4 - 5 Limes
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp light molasses
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Mix ingredients together, pour into freezer size ziplock and marinade uncooked chicken in refridgerator for at least one hour. Remove from fridge and bring to room temp before cooking. Cook chicken over medium heat, spooning extra marinade over chicken until mostly cooked. Discard any left over marinade. Add sliced veggies (green bell pepper, onion, mild green chile and a red chile pepper) to the chicken and continue cooking until sizzling.

Serve with warm tortillas, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, sliced green onions and chopped tomatoes.

How to warm tortillas:

  • Oven at 350, wrap stacked tortillas in aluminum foil and heat in oven 15 minutes or until hot.

Be sure to invite me over for dinner if you are making this, I'm good for the guacamole, sour cream, green onions and chopped tomatoes...

See? Doesn't that look fantastic!?



  1. Sounds delicious! I think I'll have to print this one out and keep it.

  2. OMG- that sounds awesome! Although I think I would throw the chicken on the grill instead of the oven. The weather is perfect for grilling right now!

  3. Argh!!! Why, oh why don't you live closer so I can eat this right now!! I live amongst all dutch people. You would fit right in :)

  4. It does indeed look splendiferous. Thanks for participating! :)

  5. That DOES sound delish! I love homemade fajitas. Yummy!

  6. Just added this to my quickly filling up dinner menu for June. Although I'm not sure if I can wait that long to try making chicken fajitas with this marinade. Yum!

  7. That sounds fantastic! I bet even my kids would like it. Thanks for sharing!
