How to make this
Step 1: Marinate the chicken
Prepare the marinade and then combine in a bowl with chicken strips. Marinate 4- to 24-hours or however long your recipe suggests.
Step 2: Cooking the vegetables and meat
Preheat the griddle to medium-high heat. My griddle temperature ranged from 375- to 400-degrees.
Add a small amount of oil to the griddle top, and smooth around. Add the sliced green peppers and onions. Cook stirring frequently until the vegetables are slightly charred, and cooked to your likeness.
Add the marinated chicken to the griddle top. Cook stirring frequently until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink. This means the chicken will have cooked to an internal temperature of 165-degrees.
Be sure to marinate the meat for the minimum amount of time recommended by your recipe. The vegetables and meat can be cooked at the same time but separately on the griddle top then stirred together at the end to make for easy serving.
Be sure not to overcook the meat or it will be tough. Remove from griddle as soon as it is done.
White, Vidalia, or red onions are best.
Absolutely, follow the instructions but cook over medium heat in a heavy pan on the stove top until done.
Cut the meat across the grain, and marinate in an acid.
Top these Blackstone Griddle Chicken Fajitas with sour cream, fresh limes, cilantro, diced tomatoes, cheese, pico de gallo, or salsa verde. Serve with Spanish rice, guacamole, or refried beans.
