Cilantro Chicken Fajitas

14 Nov

This was our dinner last night, and I have to admit, they were fabulous! E helped me make the marinade, which he loved, cause he loves using the blender. I let mine marinate for longer than 30 minutes, it was more like a few hours.  You could make these even the night before and they would be wonderful…

1 pound of boneless chicken tenders

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 cloves garlic
1 cup packed cilantro leaves
1/2 jalapeno, seeded
Salt and pepper

1 large onion, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch slices
1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
10 flour tortillas

Flatten chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap with a mallet or rolling pin. Place chicken breasts in glass baking dish. In a blender combine oil, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, jalapeno and salt and pepper. Blend until smooth and pour over chicken. Cover with plastic wrap and let chicken marinate for 30 minutes or longer. In a large skillet over medium heat oil add onions and peppers and cook until they are tender and begin to brown.

Heat a cast iron grill pan or an outdoor grill. Toast flour tortillas for about 30 seconds per side and keep warm in an aluminum foil pocket. Grill the chicken on each side for 4-5 minutes. To serve slice chicken into even strips. Serve hot with onions and peppers, grated jack cheese, salsa and sour cream.
