Chicken Fajita Skewers are fresh, tasty, healthy, colorful, and the ultimate summer grilled food that everyone loves.

We do not include Mazola® Corn Oil only to prep and marinate chicken for the fajita skewers but for salads and sauce as well.

To lighten up my recipe, I used a mixture of Mazola Corn Oil with lime juice and my own herbs and spices to marinate chicken. It is just phenomenal!​ A clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, see Mazola.com.​

The dish is pretty amazing and we did not step away too far from the authenticity. However, to lighten up my recipe, I used skewers instead of serving it traditionally in tortillas.

I swapped olive oil for corn oil, which was fantastic. It kept chicken moist and juicy. Also, I love using my own spice and herb blend for his chicken fajita instead of the store-bought. I believe it’s much healthier, plus you are in control which herb and spice you are going to use.

What Are Plant Sterols?

Plant sterols, also known as phytosterols, are plant-based micro-nutrients, naturally present in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, cereals, legumes, and vegetable oils.

Clinical studies indicate that, when consumed as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, plant sterols can help reduce the absorption of cholesterol in the gut, which, in turn, can lower LDL blood cholesterol. Are you ready to take a healthy grilling adventure with me?

Chicken Fajita Skewers are fresh, tasty, healthy, colorful, and the ultimate summer grilled food that everyone loves.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons (42 g) Mazola Corn Oil
  • Juice of 1 lime, preferably ripe
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro or flat-leaf parsley
  • 3 pounds (1.3 kg) chicken breast, cubed (approximately 3 whole chicken breast)
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 orange bell pepper, chopped into bite-sized chunks
  • 1/2 large red onion, chopped into bite-sized chunks

FAJITA SEASONING

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Instructions

Combine the seasoning and set aside. Now, mix together corn oil and lemon juice.

Cut chicken with a sharp knife into approximately same bite-size pieces as cubes, then rub seasoning all over. Drizzle corn oil and lemon juice mixture over seasoned chicken and massage it. Cover and place the chicken in the fridge and allow to marinate for about 30 minutes.

Thread the marinated chicken onto the skewers with the peppers and onions. There is no right and wrong, I just like to mix it up, so the skewers look colorful and pretty. Place back in the marinade and allow to marinate until you are ready to cook.

Cook the chicken fajita skewers on the grill for about 20-25 minutes. Turn and brush with corn oil every 10 minutes, or until chicken juices run clear. Allow it to rest for a few minutes.

Serve with rice and beans, tortillas and salad.

Notes

You may use beef for this as well.I recommend my seasoning recipe, but you may use store bought too. In the case you are using store bought, just add cilantro or parsley, corn oil and lime juice for extra tasty and tender chicken skewers.You may use fajita sauce and drizzle over the skewers to keep the chicken juicy.
