Recipe: Easy Chicken Fajitas!

I love the flavors of Mexican food! These fajitas are delicious and quick to make.

-chicken breast (as many as you would like to cook)
-1 large yellow onion (sliced in long pieces)
-1 each: green bell pepper, yellow pepper, red pepper (sliced in long pieces)
-1 lime (juiced)
-1/2 orange (juiced) -optional
-soy sauce (1 TB)
-shallots (small piece, diced)
-hot sauce (few drops, or as much as you like based on your own spiciness preference)
-olive oil, pinch of salt

In a medium sized bowl, combine shallots, lime and orange juice, olive oil, soy sauce, hot sauce and salt. Add chicken breasts. Marinate in refrigerator over night, or for about one hour.

In a pan, heat some olive oil (about 1 TB) then add chicken and sear on both sides (remove from marinade and put chicken into pan, save marinade for use later).

Once seared take chicken out, and add onions and peppers. Cook on high for a few minutes, then add chicken and marinade. Cook until peppers are soft and chicken cooked well.

Serve with Easy Mexican Rice (recipe below) and black beans, with a spoonful of sour cream or crème fraîche. If you have tortillas you can also serve them alongside, warmed up.
