You are going to love this chicken fajita salad recipe!
Isn’t Summer the perfect time for salads??? I don’t what it is but as soon as it gets closer to warm weather, I start having a craving for something fresh!!! This is so fresh and full of flavor and will make your taste buds dance! Let’s get this Summer started!!!!
6 Tablespoons olive oil
2/3 cup fresh lime juice
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoon brown sugar
2 teaspoon red chili flakes
1 teaspoon ground Cumin
2 teaspoons salt
4 chicken thighs- no bones
1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 onion, sliced
5 cups lettuce
2 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 cup Mexican blend cheese
- In a bowl, whisk all the marinade ingredients together. Pour half of the marinade into a shallow dish and then add the chicken thighs. Make sure the chicken has been covered well by the marinade and then place in the fridge for an hour. Cover remaining marinade and place in the fridge too.
- In a skillet, add 2 Tablespoons of olive oil and turn the cook top onto a medium heat. Add the veggies and cook them to your liking. We cooked our chicken on the grill but you can use a skillet.
- Slice chicken into strips and prepare your salad with the lettuce, veggies, chicken, cheese, and tomatoes. Drizzle the remaining marinade/dressing and add a dollop of sour cream to complete the masterpiece. Enjoy!
