Tip 5: Use a Cast Iron Pan
If you have one, I highly recommend using a cast iron skillet like this one for this recipe. It maintains even heat and helps to char the meat and veggies as they quickly saute in a little oil.
Step 1: Make the Marinade
Slice your meat thinly. Then, add all the marinade ingredients to two gallon-sized storage bags. Use your hands to massage the bags from the bottom and combine the marinade. Then, add the steak to one bag and the chicken to the other, seal, and toss until the meat is evenly coated.
What Makes These Chicken and Steak Fajitas the BEST
Now that the proper definition of “fajita” out of the way, you must know why this particular fajita recipe may be the BEST.
Thanks to an easy, yet complex-tasting marinade, the strips of chicken and steak turn out smokey, lime-infused, with a hint of heat in the background. They are perfectly seasoned and moist. The onions and bell peppers (thanks to a secret ingredient) turn out a little sweet which balances out the acid from the lime juice.
When served on warm tortillas, these chicken and steak fajitas taste like restaurant quality…especially if you squeeze some lime and add a little chopped cilantro over the top!
