Step 1

Whisk all of the fajita marinade ingredients together in a large bowl. Add sliced chicken and marinate at least 5 minutes. A minimum of 30 minutes is preferred. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator, covered, for more developed flavor. (You can also marinate in a plastic baggie.)

Step 2

Heat a large cast iron pan to medium heat and add olive oil.

Step 3

Add the chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove the chicken and set aside.

Step 4

Add more oil to the pan if needed and add the peppers and onions. Cook for 7-8 minutes, stirring here and there, until the peppers and onions are cooked to your preference.

Step 5

Return the chicken to the pan and heat through. Remove from heat.

Step 6

Squeeze on fresh lime juice, then serve on warmed tortillas and top with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
