Citrusy Chicken Fajitas Ingredients

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 oranges, juiced

1 lime, juiced

1 lemon, juiced

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

4 bell peppers, cored, seeded and quartered

1 red onion, peeled and cut into thick rings

Warm corn tortillas

Lime wedges

Cilantro leaves

Citrusy Chicken Fajitas Directions

In a medium bowl, combine oil, juices, chili powder, salt and pepper.

Pour half the marinade into a separate medium-sized bowl.

Add the chicken to one of the bowls and toss to coat.

Add the vegetables to the other bowl and toss to coat.

Cover both bowls and let marinate for at least two hours, or overnight.

Heat a ridged grill pan, cast-iron skillet or outdoor grill over medium heat.

Place vegetables in a single layer to cook until they start to soften and are charred on the outside, about four to five minutes per side.

Remove vegetables to a plate, cover and keep warm.

Add chicken to the pan and cook until browned and cooked through, about five to six minutes per side.

Slice the meat and vegetables into strips; serve with warm tortillas, lime wedges and fresh cilantro.
