Instructions

  1. In a resealable small jar, combine all the ingredients for the seasonings. Seal and shake well. Reserve 1 1/2 teaspoons for the bell peppers.

  2. In a large resealable bag, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lime juice and 5 teaspoons of the fajita seasonings. Add the chicken to the bag and seal. Press the marinade into the chicken and allow to marinate while you prepare the vegetables (or chill in the refrigerator until ready to use).

  3. Slice the the onions and bell peppers.
  4. Preheat the grill (or grill pan) to medium-high heat. Clean grill with brush and grease grates generously with oil to prevent sticking.


  5. Add vegetables to a grill tray and cook until softened, stirring often.

    Place the chicken breasts directly on the preheated grill. Cook chicken for 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through.


  6. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 1/4-inch chunks.

  7. Serve hot with heated tortillas, avocado slices and lime wedges plus any other toppings of your choice.

For a low carb version:

  1. Serve over some lettuce or cauliflower rice.
