Chicken Fajitas



Those look so good! I love the simple marinade. This would hit the spot on a cold day like today!

Ingredients:
  • 1 pound chicken breasts (cut into thin slices)
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 lime (~2 tablespoons of juice and zest)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin (toasted and ground)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 onions (sliced)
  • 1 green bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1 red bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1 handfull cilantro (chopped)
  • tortillas
  • salsa (optional)
  • guacamole (optional)
  • cheese (optional)
  • sour cream (optional)

Instructions:
1. Marinate the chicken in the oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper in the fridge for 30 minutes to a few hours.
2. Grill the chicken over medium-high heat until cooked, about 2-3 minutes per side. (Reserve the marinade.)
3. Heat the oil in a pan.
4. Saute the onions until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
5. Add the peppers and the remaining marinade and saute until the peppers are tender, about 5-7 minutes.
6. Remove from heat and mix in the cilantro.
7. Assemble fajitas and enjoy.
