INSTRUCTIONS

  1. MARINADE: In a large freezer bag whisk together all of the Chicken Fajita Marinade ingredients. Remove 2 tablespoons to use later for vegetables. Add chicken to freezer bag and toss to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator 6 hours up to overnight (longer the better).
  2. CHIPOTLE LIME CREMA (optional): Whisk together all of the ingredients. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use.
  3. CHICKEN: When ready to cook let chicken sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once very hot dab excess marinade off chicken and add to skillet. Cook chicken undisturbed for 2-3 minutes or until nicely browned (or blackened if you prefer) on one side. Turn chicken over cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook for approximately 2-4 more minutes (depending on thickness of chicken) or until chicken is cooked through. Remove to a cutting board tent with foil and let rest 5 minutes before slicing across the grain into strips.
  4. VEGETABLES: Meanwhile Add 1 tablespoon oil to the leftover juices in the skillet along with reserved 2 tablespoons marinade. Heat over medium high heat. Add onions and saute 1 minute. Add bell peppers and saute for 3-4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add sliced chicken and toss to coat.
  5. ASSEMBLE: Layer tortillas with Chicken Fajita mixture and desired toppings. Top with Chipotle Lime Crema.
