Make Me A Meal Monday [Tuesday] - Fajitas

Sorry that this weeks edition of MMAMM is coming to you on Tuesday but this 3 day weekend I forgot to post this yesterday.

And my Top 2 Tuesday is a post below......

Alright but back to my Make Me a Meal Monday.... errr Tuesday

I found this recipe on Annie's Eats [if you haven't checked out her blog - you need to!]

Grilled Chicken Fajitas


1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
6 tbsp vegetable oil
3 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
1 jalapeno, seeded ribbed and diced
1/ 1/2 tbsp minced fresh cilantro
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, butterflied [6 halves]
1 large red onion, sliced into 1/2 inch thick slices, rings not seperated
2 large bell peppers, stemmed, quartered and seeded
8 - 12 [6 inch] whole wheat tortillas

In medium bowl whisk together lime juice, 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, japaleno, cilantro, salt and pepper.
Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade and set aside
place chicken breast in marinade, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes
Brush both sides of onion rounds and peppers with remaining vegetable oil
Season with Salt and Pepper
Remove chicken breast halves from marinade and place onto grill along with peppers and onions
When chicken and vegetables are close to being done add your tortillas to the grill as well
Slice chicken, onion and peppers into strips
I put a bunch of toppings out for the fajitas as well
cheddar cheese, sour cream, salsa, limes, mexican rice, and black beans
wrap up your fajita and enjoy

Looks delicious as always! Yum!! I feel like I've been obsessed with our BBQ grill lately, but I think it's because fall/winter is coming up and I know that we're limited in the chances to BBQ outside!! Hope you're having a great day, Lindsey!
