Grilled Chicken Fajitas

I love mexican food.  So does my family, thankfully.  We sure do eat a lot of it.  Fajitas, tacos, enchiladas, salsa, rice… the list goes on.  Oh, and fried ice cream!  Yum.

I’m constantly experimenting with new ways to make our favorite mexican dishes; but still, I just can’t top this one.  Everytime I throw this chicken on the grill the aroma is so intoxicating.  I often wonder if the neighbors are jealous.

This is one of those recipes that I make several times a month, especially during grilling season.  We never tire of it!  The flavor of this grilled chicken is so bright and bold; it’s delicious all on it’s own.  Use it to make fajitas, tacos, nachos or even a salad that your whole family will love.

To make Fajitas:

Place veggies and chicken on the grill. Stir vegetables occasionally. Grill until veggies are soft and have some char on them. Grill chicken, flipping only once until cooked through to 165°.
