I love Chicken Fajitas, but have never made my own from scratch. I've used a packet of seasoning before, but I wanted something a little different this time. These Chicken Fajitas turned out fantastic! They taste so fresh and are just plain delicious! They were a hit with the entire family. Luckily for me, I made enough to have leftovers tomorrow for lunch. :)
3 bell peppers, thinly sliced (I used 1 each of red, yellow and green)
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced thin
2 tablespoons oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup fresh lemon or lime juice
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried chipotle chile pepper
Pour 1 tablespoon oil in to a large skillet and heat over medium high heat. Add peppers and onion and saute until tender-crisp; about 5 minutes. Remove peppers from the skillet and set aside in a bowl. Add remaining tablespoon of oil to the skillet and add chicken. Cook until cooked through; about 5 minutes. Drain any juices and add peppers and onions back into the skillet. Add remaining ingredients and cook for 2 minutes longer. Serve in tortillas topped with cheese, guacamole, salsa (or this salsa) and sour cream, if desired.
