Chicken Fajitas
The only trouble was that it was below freezing outside and everything had been covered in a foot of snow. Not to worry though as my trusty grill pan came to the rescue! The idea behind fajitas is pretty simple being grilled meat, most often beef or chicken, served in a tortilla.

Chicken Fajitas

  • 1 pound chicken breasts (cut into thin slices)
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 lime (~2 tablespoons of juice and zest)
  • 1 tablespoonchili 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)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (chopped)
  • 8 tortillas
  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.
Option: Serve with your favourite filling likesalsa,guacamole, cheese, sour cream, etc.
