2 tablespoons lime juice 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons water 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 cloves garlic, crushed 1 teaspoon soy sauce 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I went a little light on this. Season to your heat threshold!) 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil Sliced chicken breasts (I used 4 thin-cut breasts for the two of us) 1 red pepper, sliced 1 green pepper, sliced 1 medium white onion, sliced Optional toppings: salsa, sour cream, queso cheese
1. In a large resealable plastic bag or glass bowl, mix together the lime juice, water, olive oil, garlic, soy sauce, salt, and liquid smoke flavoring. Stir in cayenne and black pepper.
2. Place desired meat in the marinade, and refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight.
3. Heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and marinade, peppers, and onion and heat until chicken is cooked through and onions are translucent. As the fajita mixture is finishing, heat another skillet over low heat. Heat tortillas, about 5 seconds each side, until heated through. Top tortillas with fajita mixture and any preferred toppings. Enjoy!
By lazy I mean BUSY. I work long hours so cooking during the week is not an option. Luckily, my husband is completely cool with this and sustains himself on yogurt, protein shakes, and peanut butter sandwiches during the week. I love to cook on weekends. Most dishes are simple, but I LOVE trying new recipes!
