Instructions

For the chili-lime marinade

  • Zest the lime using a micro plane or the small holes of a box grater. Add the zest to a large non-reactive bowl. Juice the lime and add the juice to the bowl along with 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil, taco seasoning, and salt. 
  • Add the chicken strips and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

For the chicken fajitas

  • While the chicken is marinating, make your flour tortillas with this recipe. To make fajita-sized tortillas, divide the dough into twelve balls and roll out 6-inch tortillas.
  • When you are ready to cook your fajita filling, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the peppers and onions to the skillet and sauté until crisp-tender, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the peppers and onions to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the marinated, seasoned chicken to the skillet and cook until no longer pink, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Return the pepper and onion mixture to pan. Add the green onions, stir to combine, and heat through. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  • Spoon filling down the center of warm tortillas, add your desired toppings, fold in half, and enjoy. Recipe makes twelve 6-inch chicken fajitas.
