Chicken Fajita Skewers

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 combination of this extravagant oil and delectable chicken definitely called for a family cookout!

The corn oil provided a rich, tender taste that left all of our mouths watering before we could dive into the meal.

When having this oil on hand, you are guaranteed to never be left disappointed.

Chicken Fajita Skewers

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 of which herb and spice you are going to use.

Before we move forward, let me tell you about the rebate. I partnered with Mazola® Corn Oil to give you the best of the best-grilled recipe for this summer season.

Skewers

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
Yield: Serves 6

Chicken Fajita Skewers

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

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.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Resting Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes

Extremely tasty Everything Bagel Baked Chicken Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 Chicken Breast halves with the rib/bone and skin
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley per chicken breast
  • EVERYTHING BAGEL SEASONING:
  • 3 tablespoons Black Sesame Seeds
  • 3 tablespoons untoasted/raw Sesame Seeds
  • 3 tablespoons Dried Onion Flakes
  • 2 tablespoons Poppy Seeds
  • 2 tablespoons Golden Flaxseeds or brown flaxseeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2-3/4 teaspoon Sea Salt or to taste

Instructions

  1. Make “Everything Bagel Seasoning”.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F
  3. Remove and separate bone and rib from each chicken breast as you can see in my pictures above. Leave the skin on because it creates a nice crust.
  4. Add a drizzle of oil on each chicken breast after you separated from the bone and rub top and bottom.
  5. Add Everything bagel seasoning on the plate and coat each chicken breast, top, and bottom with the seasoning, then dust it with dried parsley and place on previously greased/oiled baking sheet.
  6. Drizzle just a tad more oil on top of the chicken.
  7. Bake chicken for 40-45 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken and if the internal temperature thermometer reads 165°F (at the thickest part of the chicken) then the chicken is cooked and safe to eat.
  8. Allow chicken to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing it. This way the chicken is going to be juicy on the inside. All the oil that is leftover on the baking sheet, keep it to drizzle over the chicken before serving.

Notes

You can use chicken tights with the skin, however, if you do not like skin at all please remove it or purchase skinless chicken.

If you don’t have poppy seeds or flaxseeds, please omit, I believe that sesame seeds are must because it gives you that nutty sesame seed aroma, taste, and flavor. You can serve it over rice, salad, sandwiches, wraps, lettuce wraps, etc.

It is really delicious however you serve it. You can cook veggies on the baking sheet that you cooked chicken. Please, do not through away that leftover oil. It got so much flavor.
