Chicken Fajitas

I had a red a yellow pepper that I needed to use hanging out in our fridge so I decided to make Fajitas last night. I found an excellent marinade recipe for the chicken from My Kitchen Cafe and from Our Best Bites. The recipes were almost identical so I am going to give credit to the both of them. My family loved these!! Super simple and just serve with tortillas and Spanish rice and refried beans.

Chicken Fajitas
1 1/2 lbs chicken sliced in strips(about 5-6 chicken breasts)
1/2 cup fresh lime juice(about3-4 limes)
1/2 cup water
4 T. oil
4 clove garlic, minced
6 tsp red wine or apple cider vinegar
4 tsp soy sauce
4 tsp liquid smoke(find by bbq sauce in walmart or any grocery store)
2 tsp salt
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper(optional)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder

Mix all the ingredients except the chicken in a bowl . Place the chicken in a ziploc bag and pour the marinade over the top of chicken. Seal the bag and let marinate in fridge for 4-6 hours or overnight. the longer it marinades the better the flavor.

When ready for dinner slice 2 peppers any color and 1 large onion. Heat 1 T. of oil in a skillet and cook the onions and peppers together until desired tenderness. In another skillet cook the strips of chicken until cooked through. YOu can mix the meat and veggies together or just let everyone get how much they want of each on their tortilla. We served these with rice, beans, lime wedges, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, salsa, and pico de gallo. So yummy!!!!
