Make Ahead Freezer Chicken Fajitas

  • Author: Kelly McNelis
  • Yield: 6 servings if you use two pounds of chicken 1x


Serve on tortillas or rice with your favorite fajitas toppings, like shredded cheese, salsa, and guacamole.


  • 12 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 3 medium-sized sweet bell peppers (I like a mix of red, orange, and yellow), sliced
  • 1 large¬†sweet yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • The juice from 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

To Freeze and Cook Later

  1. Combine all ingredients in a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag and freeze for up to three months.
  2. When ready to eat, thaw overnight in the refrigerator (or in warm water, if you forget).
  3. Cook in large pan on stovetop for 10-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and peppers are tender.
