Garlic Lime Chicken Fajitas

Garlic Lime Chicken Fajitas
From McCormick’s Garlic Lime Fajitas Recipe Inspirations package

Makes 8 servings


1/4 cup each lime and orange juices
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dried minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried minced onions
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro leaves
1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips*
1 medium green or red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
8 flour tortillas (8-inch)


Mix juices, oil, all of the spices and salt in a small bowl. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade. Place chicken in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerate 30 minutes or longer for extra flavor.

Cook and stir chicken in large heated skillet on medium-high heat 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from skillet. Add bell pepper, onion and reserved marinade; cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender. Return chicken to skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through.

Spoon chicken mixture into warmed tortillas. Serve with assorted toppings, if desired

Review: This was great and also as noted another McCormick Inspiration packet, but you can probably find all the spices in your cabinet. These fajitas had great flavor, and even tasted like restaurant fajitas.
