Variations

When it comes to Blackstone Chicken Fajitas, there is a lot of play on the ingredients. Consider trying these ideas:

  • Taco Seasoning – If you don’t have the Fresh Jax seasonings, swap it for regular taco seasoning instead. It’s just as delicious!
  • Make Your Own Seasoning Combination – Feel free to combine any of your favorite seasonings like garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, and oregano!
  • Add cheese – To make the chicken on the Blackstone extra gooey, add some cheddar cheese before removing it from the griddle.
  • Beans – Add some black beans or kidney beans to the fajita mixture. Give it a good stir and let set for 1-2 minutes before removing.

Do I need to cut the chicken before cooking?

No, if you aren’t in the mood to slice the chicken you can wait until it’s done cooking first. You will need some good quality Blackstone Accessories so you can chop the chicken.

Or, if you would rather cut it ahead of time, it will cook even faster. It’s completely up to you.

How do I serve chicken fajitas?

I typically serve them wrapped in a tortilla, but you can certainly add all the ingredients to a bowl instead. Both ways are tasty so it’s just a matter of your preference and your diet.

Do I use frozen or fresh onions and peppers?

Either way works fine and has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Using fresh peppers and onions allows them to char a little more and they actually cook faster. Frozen veggies are more watery because you have to cook off all the ice.

The deciding factor to me is what I have on hand and the price. Typically, frozen onions and peppers are SUPER cheap so I always keep them on hand. I am all for saving some money when I can.

Do I have to use chicken breasts?

I prefer the results of chicken breasts, but you could swap them for boneless skinless chicken thighs. Follow the same directions either way.
