Chicken Fajitas for Charcoal Grill
Why This Recipe Works
We quickly realized that the separate components of the best chicken fajita recipe would require special handling. Briefly marinating the chicken in a high-acid mixture created a bright, unadulterated tang. The chicken, peppers, and onions could be grilled simultaneously, but the chicken needed high heat, while the vegetables had to be grilled over medium-high to brown without burning. As for the tortillas for our chicken fajita recipe, we grilled them for 20 seconds on the cooler end of the grill until they puffed up and lost their raw, gummy texture.
