Garlic Lime Chicken Fajitas

Submitted by Marcia Brisson via McCormick
This recipe is not on their website. I even called about it! I have copied it down lovingly for you :0)

1 tsp. Minced Garlic (dry)
1 tsp. Minced Onions (dry)
¾ tsp. Ground Cumin
¾ tsp. Oregano Leaves (dry)
½ tsp. Cilantro Leaves (dry)
½ tsp. Coarse Ground Black Pepper
½ tsp. salt
¼ cup lime juice
¼ cup orange juice
2 tbl olive oil
1 ½ lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1 medium green or red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
8 flour tortillas (8-inch)

1. Mix juices, oil, and all spices & salt into a small bowl
2. Reserve 1/4 of marinade
3. Place chicken into a large resealable bag or dish and add the 3/4 of the marinade. Make sure pieces are well coated
4. Refrigerate 30 minutes or longer for extra flavor
5. Cook and stir chicken in a large heated skillet on medium-high heat until lightly browned
6. Remove from skillet
7. Add bell pepper and onions with the reserve 1/4 marinade
8. Stir about 5 minutes or until tender
9. Return chicken to skillet
10. Cook 2 to 3 minutes until all is well heated and well mixed with the marinade
11. Serve in warm tortillas and enjoy!

Notes: I love peppers so I added probably double what was called for and sprinkled in extra spices. Also, it is really good if you have some shredded cheese, sour cream, rice, beans, cut limes etc. for sides
