Garlic Lime Chicken Fajitas!
These were FABULOUS and a nice play on the normal chicken fajitas! Really quick and easy too! My only suggestion was to add more than the recommended amount of vegetables.
1tsp minced garlic
1 tsp minced onions
3/4 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp oregano leaves
1/2 tsp cilantro leaves
1/2 course ground pepper
1/4 lime juice
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 lbs boneless chicken breasts cut into thin strips
1 medium green or red pepper cut into thin strips (I used one red and one green)
1 medium onion thinly sliced (again, I used 2)
Mix juices, oil, all of the spices and salt in a small bowl. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade. Place chicken in resealable plastic bag. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or longer for extra flavor.
Cook and stir chicken in large heated skillet on medium high for 3 minutes or until lightly browned (doesn't have to been cooked through). Remove chicken from skillet. Add peppers and onion and reserved marinade and cook and stir for 5 minutes or until veggies are tender. Return chicken to skillet and cook another 2-3 minutes until heated through.
Place tortillas between two damp paper towels and heat in microwave for 45 seconds.
I served the fajitas with some shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, and some extra hot sauce!
