What is the Difference Between Beef and Chicken Fajitas?

Marinated Beef fajitas have a tender and fatty beefy taste and are more common for most cookouts. Beef fajitas tend to absorb more flavors when marinated and will cook much more quickly. While chicken fajitas are leaner and have less fat than beef fajitas. Marinated Chicken fajitas also absorb and release the flavors well when cooked. 

Restaurant Style Fajitas

To cook, you sear the chicken cutlets on a hot cast iron pan, or you could also use a hot grill. After letting them rest for a few minutes, slice them across the grain of the meat. Cook them with peppers and onions in the same pan while the meat is resting.
