The Instacart guide to chicken fajita meat


About chicken fajita meat

Few foods tickle so many senses, but chicken fajitas must be at the top of the list. The warm, spicy aroma mixed with the crackling, sizzling sound of freshly prepared fajita meat signals that something special is on its way to the table. 

Fajitas are a signature element of Tex-Mex cuisine, first appearing in the 1930s as a popular meal for feeding the vaqueros, cow herders from Mexico. Historically, fajitas were made with small strips of beef, but pork, shrimp, and chicken are also popular fillings. Fajita meat was originally grilled on an open campfire, and vestiges of this process continue today in fajita preparation. 

Restaurants started picking up on this incredibly flavorful cooking style in the 1990s, and fajitas became a menu staple. The theatrical presentation of a sizzling cast iron plate delivered to the table can transport you back to the original preparation of chicken fajita meat grilled over an open flame and seasoned with local flavors of chilies and aromatic herbs and spices. 

Fajitas are usually served with grilled peppers and onions, an array of toppings such as salsa, Pico de Gallo, sour cream, guacamole, cheese, and lettuce, with a stack of flour or corn tortillas. This enables diners to create their own perfect fajita right at the table.

FAQs About Chicken Fajita Meat

Several types of prepared chicken fajita meat come pre-seasoned to go directly into the pan or on the grill for a quick and traditionally flavored meal. If you are making chicken fajita meat from scratch, you will want to season the meat to impart the signature flavor to the chicken fajita meat. Fajita seasoning is typically a mix of cumin, chili powder, salt, paprika, garlic, onion powder, and a dash of sugar. All of these spices are available to order from Instacart, in addition to fajita seasoning blend packets. Dry the chicken fajita meat thoroughly before applying the seasoning rub to ensure that the mix adheres evenly to the chicken. 

Chicken fajitas are a wonderful treat when prepared on the grill, imparting the traditional flavor of being cooked over an open fire. Instead of cutting the chicken fajita meat into strips, season or marinate a whole skinless chicken breast and put it on the grill at medium heat. Prior to seasoning, some chefs lightly hammer the chicken breast to make the meat thinner to reduce the cooking time. Once on the grill, turn the chicken fajita meat over after a few minutes to ensure that both sides grill evenly. After you have used a kitchen thermometer to ensure that the chicken is at least 165 degrees in the center, remove it from the heat to slice and serve with all of your other fajita toppings. 

Whether you use the grill or cook on the stovetop, ingredients can be on your doorstep in as little as 2 hours when you order your chicken fajita meat, seasonings, and sides from the Instacart app!
