Garlic Lime Chicken Fajitas

Ingredients: 1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. minced onion
3/4 tsp. ground cumin
3/4 tsp. oregano leaves
1/2 tsp. cilantro leaves
1/2 tsp. coarse ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. each lime and orange juices
2 tbsp. olive oil
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)

I used McCormick spices, but any brand will do just fine.

1. Mix juices, oil, all of the spices and salt in a small bowl. Reserve 1/4 c. of the marinade. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bad or glass dish. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerate 30 minutes or longer for extra flavor.
2. 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.
3. Spoon chicken mixture into warmed tortillas. Serve with assorted toppings, if desired.

I forgot the tortillas :) so I served this dish with rice instead. Either way you serve it, this garlic lime chicken is sure to please all members of your family.
