Mexican Feast Part 6: Fajitas de pollo/Chicken Fajitas

Fajitas de pollo. YUM! I honestly thought the steak fajitas were going to be better than these, but I was proven wrong. Usually, no matter how much I season chicken, I still think beef tastes better. This time, however, the chicken was perfect, and I used less seasoning than I did with the steak fajitas. Furthermore, I did not marinate the chicken as I did with the steak.

I had to make another batch of flour tortillas for this dish. However, I still had leftovers of arroz mexicano, frijoles refritos, grated cheese, and pico de gallo.

Again, I don't have a recipe for this chicken. I just cut up the chicken, seasoned it with Lawry's Seasoning Salt, cumin, homemade taco seasoning, and freshly-ground peppercorn. I then put olive oil in the cast-iron pan, threw in some onions and garlic. After allowing it to cook for awhile, I added in the seasoned chicken and cooked it until it looked ready. Then, I added in some chopped cilantro.

This dish was beyond delicious. I cannot wait to make it again. It's so simple and quick to make; I don't know why I've never made it before.

Maybe next time I can take some photos of them that are not overexposed hehe. Interestingly, it has been overcast and/or rainy ever since that day.

Well, this marks the last dish of my Mexican Feast series; I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
