Easy & Yummy Grilled Chicken Fajitas

Tuesday, March 22, 2016


We love grilling out almost as much as we love Mexican food.  I found this recipe years ago and it's one that we consider a favorite.  It's super easy to toss everything together in a ziploc bag early in the day and then the grill it up later in the evening.  Add a few toppings and dinner is served.

Ingredients include chicken breast, bell peppers, red onions, lime juice, salsa, garlic, and olive oil. 



Grilled Chicken Fajitas

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 slices red onion, cut 1/4" thick
2 large bell peppers, halved
2 T. each olive oil & lime juice (I use a whole lime)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup salsa
tortillas

additional toppings
sharp cheddar
whole Greek yogurt or sour cream

Marinate 2-24 hours - great if you are organized the night before.  Grill the chicken & vegetables about 5 minutes on each side or until done.  We use a grill pan for the vegetables so they don't slip through the grates. While everything is grilling, bring reserved marinade to a boil.  Cut chicken & vegetables into thin strips and drizzle with marinade. Divide among tortillas.  Enjoy!
