Serves 4 | Prep Time | Cook Time


4 garlic cloves, pressed
2 Tab fresh lime juice
1 tsp ground cumin
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (each 6 oz)
3 Tab vegetable oil
2 bell peppers (red, yellow or both), ribs and seeds removed, sliced 1/2-inch thick
1 medium onion, halved and sliced 1/2-inch thick
Assorted accompaniment such as, cilantro, sour cream, shredded Monterey Jack, salsa, lettuce, lime wedges

In a medium bowl or resealable plastic bag, combine garlic, lime juice, cumin, 2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp ground pepper; add chicken and turn to coat.

Heat 2 Tab oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts; cook until opaque throughout, 6 - 8 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate, wipe skillet with a paper towel.

Heat remaining tablespoon oil in skillet. Add peppers and onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender, 5 - 7 minutes.

Thinly slice chicken; serve with cooked vegetables and desired accompaniments, letting guests assemble their own fajitas.

I let the chicken marinate for a couple of hours. The substitution suggestion is replacing the chicken with 1 1/2 lbs of flank steak, cooked in the skillet to your liking and thinly sliced.
