Grilled Chicken Fajitas




YUM!  We've tried several versions of fajitas and this is one of the best, if not THE best.  I found this recipe over at Our Krazy Kitchen and knew I wanted to try it because the chicken is marinated in beer.  I chose to use Dos Equis since it went with the Mexican theme dinner.  The fajitas turned out great!  I marinated the chicken overnight (because it is easier to do it at night than before work in the morning). 


I served the fajitas with some great (and healthy) tortillas - La Tortilla Factory Smart and Delicious Tortillas.  The tortillas only had 50 calories, 5 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber!  You can't beat that and they tasted great!!  Everything you need to enjoy a guilt-free Mexican night!

(Printable Recipe)

4 ea chicken breasts, boneless, skin on
1 cup beer
1 cup Herdez Salsa Casera (you can substitute Rotel)
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cumin

Mix all of the ingredients (except chicken) for your marinade.

Marinate the chicken in a gallon zip bag for 4 - 6 hours.

Grill over a 350f fire, flipping every 5 minutes until the breast hit an internal temp of 160f. For me, this takes right at 20 minutes.
