Tequilla Lime Chicken Fajitas

6 large boneless skinless chicken breasts

12 large flour tortillas


1/2 cup tequila

     1/2 cup lime juice (juice of 4 limes)

    1/4 cup olive oil

     1 tablespoon chili powder

   1 tablespoon ground cumin

   1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


1 tablespoon olive oil

    2 medium green pepper,s cut into thin slices

    2 medium red or yellow pepper, cut into thin slices

    1 large sweet onion, cut into medium-sized pieces

Combine the marinade ingredients and pour into a ziploc bag. Add the chicken breasts and marinate at least a few hours (overnight is best) in the refrigerator.

Grill the chicken breasts over medium-high heat for about 7-8 minutes per side or until done. Let rest a few minutes, and then cut into 1/2-inch strips immediately before serving.

While the chicken is grilling, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a skillet. Add the peppers and onion and cook for no more than 3-5 minutes so that the vegetables are still a little crisp.

Serve the chicken and vegetables on the flour tortillas with sides of rice and/or beans.
