Tangy Chicken Fajitas

This is from It is one of a small handful of recipes that Bernardo found and makes himself. Authentic? No. Delicious? Yes. This is one of our go-to recipes. In reality, we don't marinate it for more than 20 minutes as it is usually an after-work meal. We serve with a full buffet of toppings: cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, beans, rice, and sour cream.

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 (.7 ounce) packages dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
  • 3 whole boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced

  1. In a large glass bowl combine the oil, vinegar, lime juice, and dry salad dressing mix. Mix together. Add chicken strips, onion and bell pepper. Cover dish and refrigerate. Marinate for 3 to 6 hours.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil. Remove chicken, onion and bell pepper from marinade and saute in oil until chicken is cooked through (juices run clear) and onion is translucent.
  3. Serve on warm flour tortillas with toppings.
