Grilled Chicken Fajitas

The grills will be fired up this Memorial Weekend.  What a great time to try a new Myplate2yours recipe…Chicken Fajitas!  This is a favorite in our family and I’m sure it will become one in yours, too!!

Grilled Chicken Fajitas (this recipe was adapted from a cookbook that came with our first Weber grill.)

3 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved

1/3 cup canola oil

¼ cup red wine vinegar

1/3 cup lime juice

¼ cup onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

¼ teaspoon cumin

1 medium bell pepper each:  green, yellow, red

Combine oil, vinegar, lime juice, onion, garlic, sugar, oregano, salt, paper and cumin in a shallow, glass bowl.  Add chicken and coat with marinade.  Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.

Heat gas grill (to medium).  Remove chicken from marinade and place on grill with indirect heat.  Cook 10-12 minutes, or until chicken is at 165 degrees.  Turn once halfway through cooking time.

While chicken is cooking, slice green, yellow, and red bell peppers and sauté on stove with some olive oil, salt and pepper.

When chicken is done, slice into strips.  Place on top of sautéed peppers.  Serve with warmed soft flour or whole grain tortillas.  Top with your choice of salsa, avocado, tomato.  Enjoy!
