Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: In a bowl, combine the juice of one lime, minced garlic, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create a marinade.
  • Step 2: Place the chicken breasts in the marinade and coat them evenly. Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes, or refrigerate overnight for maximum flavor.
  • Step 3: Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Remove from heat and let it rest for a few minutes.
  • Step 4: While the chicken is resting, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add sliced bell peppers and onion to the skillet and cook until they are softened and slightly charred.
  • Step 5: Slice the grilled chicken into thin strips. Serve the chicken and sautéed vegetables on warm tortillas.
  • Step 6: Serve the fajitas with guacamole, salsa, and sour cream on the side.
