make this.

Fajitas Marinade

for 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts

3 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons onion salt
1 1/2 teaspoons season salt
1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon red pepper

Mix all ingredients together. Place cut strips of chicken in a large plastic bag and pour the marinade over the chicken. The marinade smells delicious.

My sister Kelly gave me this recipe and I have made it on two different occasions. Both times I only let the marinade set into the chicken for about an hour. Then I cooked the chicken and in a separate pan I cooked peppers with garlic and olive oil. Build your own fajita with the chicken, peppers and toppings of your choice. The best thing about the marinade (besides the taste) is that there isn't a lot of remaining marinade to dispose of after you soak the chicken. It all covers the chicken and cooks nicely.
