Chicken Fajitas

Fajitas are the perfect family meal.  I put all the fajita fillings on the table and we each add our own combination of ingredients to our warm tortillas.   It's always interesting to me to watch my family create their own custom fajita.  I am amazed at what they will eat when I give them control over their own dinner - even vegetables.  This recipe is a family favorite at our house. 

Chicken Fajitas
5 Tablespoons oil
juice from 2 limes
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 red onion, sliced thin
1 bell pepper, sliced into strips
8 flour tortillas

Combine oil, lime juice, garlic, Worcestershire, brown sugar, jalapeno and salt in a ziploc bag.  Reserve 1/4 cup of marinade.  Add chicken to bag and refrigerate 15 minutes.  Toss peppers and onion with 1 Tablespoon oil.  Grill peppers and onions in grill basket. 

Remove chicken from bag and grill until cooked through.  Remove from heat, wrap in foil and let rest for 10 minutes. 

Wrap tortillas in foil and place on the grill to warm.  Thinly slice chicken and toss with reserved marinade.

Other toppings that I like to serve with fajitas: sliced avocado, cheese, salsa, black beans and baked tortilla chips

You can get really creative with this recipe.  Send me your comments after you give it a try.

Bon Appetit!
