Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, about ½-inch thick
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 large onion, quartered
  • 8 to 10 flour tortillas, (I use low carb tortillas)

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl combine olive oil, lime juice, and fajita seasoning; whisk to combine.
  • Pour the marinade in a large ziploc bag.
  • Add chicken breasts to the marinade; seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes, and up to an hour.
  • In the meantime, cut the peppers in half; discard the tops, seeds, and membranes.
  • Preheat outdoor grill to Medium Heat.
  • Clean the grill grates, then lightly oil the grill grates.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and shake off excess. Discard marinade.
  • Place chicken, peppers, and onions on the grill.
  • Cook, turning chicken, peppers, and onions occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink and veggies are tender; about 15 to 20 minutes. Chicken is done when the internal temperature registers at 165˚F.
  • Remove chicken, peppers, and onions from the grill; let chicken and veggies stand 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, warm the tortillas on the grill for about a minute per side.
  • Cut chicken, peppers, and onions into strips; serve on tortillas.
