Fajitas are fun to make, fun to eat and easy to enjoy! Here is my recipe for Lemon Pepper Chicken Fajitas...
3 boneless chicken breasts, butterflied in half, then sliced crosswise
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 poblano pepper
1 large sweet onion
1 serrano pepper or jalapeno, minced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
¼ cup of a course lemon pepper seasoning
¼ cup chopped cilantro
Salt (about 2 teaspoons)
½ cup canola oil
Lemon wedges for garnish
1. Start by cutting the red, yellow, poblano pepper and sweet onion into strips, set aside. In a bowl combine the garlic, serrano pepper, lemon pepper seasoning, salt (about 2
teaspoons) and canola oil (about ½ cup).
2. In a heavy storage bag, combine the marinade with the chicken and let marinate for 1 hour. When ready, you can either grill your chicken on an outdoor grill or you can cook on a stove- top griddle or grill.
3. Heat stove-top grill to medium/high heat, cook chicken for 5 to 6 minutes per side, as long as chicken is not too thick. When chicken is halfway through its cooking time, cook the peppers and onions on one side of grill, you want them to still be slight crisp.
4. Remove the chicken from the heat and let it rest for a minute or two. Slice it thin, at a bias, combine with peppers and onion, garnish with lemon wedges and sprinkle with cilantro.
Serve with rice, salad or as a filling for tacos, burritos.
