Grilled Chicken Fajita Skewers
I love grilling season! Sitting out on the deck with friends, and if I’m lucky a Citrus Moscow Mule, while my guy throws some meat on the grill and does all of the cooking. Total bliss! Not that I don’t help. I make all of the sides and I even skewer the chicken for these Grilled Chicken Fajita Skewers but when the time comes to cook it’s his time to shine. I love it! 🙂

I love him to death and he does a great job grilling but I’m still totally in charge of coming up with what we’re going to eat. If I left it to him it would be steak and brats all summer…which wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world, these Beer Brat Sliders are pretty bomb-diggity, but it would also mean we’d miss out on delicious recipes like Grilled Chicken Fajita Skewers! Chicken fajitas are one of our favorite things and I make them year round. I thought it would be fun to put all of the ingredients on a stick and grill them up.
They were really simple to make. I made my own fajita seasoning with a blend of chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and salt (feel free to use a fajita seasoning packet instead!) and tossed the cubed chicken in it. Then I put the meat on a skewer with a mix of red, yellow, and green bell peppers, and red onion. I gave the kebabs a little sprinkle of salt and sent them out to be grilled. The nice thing about skewer recipes is that they cook pretty quickly on the grill since the meat is already cut into small pieces. I had just finished sitting the tortillas, guacamole, and pico de gallo on the table when the skewers finished cooking and then we pulled everything off the stick, wrapped it up in a tortilla and dug in!
