Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk lime juice, olive oil, and fajita seasoning together in a bowl and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add chicken breasts, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Cut bell peppers in half and discard the inner membranes and seeds.

  • Remove chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade.

  • Place chicken and peppers (cut-sides down) on the preheated grill. Cook, turning occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, and peppers have nice grill marks on them, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Cut peppers and chicken into strips and serve on tortillas.

These turned out great. Our grill died, so I had to use the George Foreman, but it worked. I made 2 pounds of chicken and doubled everything except just used one of each bell pepper. I used Fajita Seasoning Mix from this site, which is my favorite; I always keep it on hand because we love fajitas. Read More

This was really good. I also made my own fajita seasoning and used that on both the chicken AND sprinkled a little on the inside of the peppers. I also grilled some red onions but did that in a small tin foil pan on the side of grill. While this is not a mind-blowing, new fajita experience, it WAS really good, very easy and a nice alternative to do the entire meal on the grill. Especially on a beautiful fall day! Would do again! Thank you! Read More
