Chicken Fajitas

These are scrumptious!! Loved by all who try them. I make a big batch and my family enjoys the leftovers for snacks or for an on the run meal. 

Fajita Marinade:
3-4 boneless,skinned chicken breasts sliced into strips
½ Cup vegetable oil
⅓ Cup freshly squeezed lime juice
⅓ Cup chopped onions
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
½ teaspoon dried cumin
3-4 minced fresh garlic
1 fresh hot pepper minced (optional)

Combine marinade ingredients in a shallow casserole dish.
Add chicken strips, and refrigerate several hours.
When ready to cook, heat a small amount of vegetable oil in a frying pan and add chicken, cooking in small batches to ensure chicken browns. Cook chicken until nicely browned and thoroughly cooked. Transfer to a plate and continue cooking all the chicken.

Flour tortillas
Red Onion Slices
Green and Red pepper slices
Sour cream
Grated cheddar cheese

In a frying pan saute onions and peppers until tender crisp.
I like to saute the onions separately as I like them cooked more than the peppers but this is just my preference.
Add cooked chicken to the vegetables and stir to combine and re-heat the chicken
To assemble: Warm the tortilla in the microwave just to soften it up. Add chicken mixture, followed by toppings and wrap.
This recipe doubles well.
