How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all marinade ingredients in large resealable plastic food bag; add chicken strips. Tightly seal bag. Turn bag several times to coat chicken. Place bag into 13x9-inch pan. Refrigerate, turning occasionally, at least 3 hours or overnight. Drain chicken; discard marinade.

  2. STEP 2

    Place chicken, green pepper and onion in 10-inch skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 8-10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.

  3. STEP 3

    Serve chicken mixture in warm tortillas with toppings, as desired.

Tip #1

If serving fewer than 4 people, prepare fajita chicken mixture as directed. Freeze leftover mixture in portions desired for future meals. Prepare desired number of tortillas and toppings needed for each meal.

The recipe was very tasty. We cut down the marinade time by using our Food Saver--Marinator (30 minutes). Added mexican rice as a side item.
