Easy Fajitas

I suppose you probably already know that one of my all time very, very, very favorite, most loved restaurants is Chili's.  There are a few things on their menu that I cycle through when I go there.  (Which isn't as often as it used to be...which is probably good for my wallet and waistline...)  Chicken Enchilada Soup and Salad, Chicken Sliders and of course, their Chicken Fajitas!  I really, really love their fajitas, and if I didn't also like those other two things i would probably always get them.  Although, I also need a sharing buddy for their fajitas for one...  Anyway, I make different fajitas from time to time at home too, because i love them so much.  And you'll notice I didn't label this recipe a copycat because it's not.  I'm not going for that with this one at all.  I just am posting a simple recipe for some yummy fajitas at home. :)  I may later post one that's a copycat stay tuned.  My mom has a killer (why do we use that word in this context?) recipe for their marinade...

Easy Fajitas at home (serves 4)
2 Chicken Breasts
1 Sweet Bell Pepper, sliced (I used yellow, but red, orange or green work too)
1 Onion, sliced
1 T. Oil
Fajita sized tortillas, or any size you want!
Cheese, shredded
Sour Cream
Pico or Corn Salsa
Guac. (optional)
Clockwise from top left: Chicken, Onions and Peppers; Plate of garnishing
goodies; tortillas ready to go; starting to assemble; and ready to eat!

1.  Cook the chicken until there is no pink.  Set aside.  (While chicken is cooking you can prepare a plate with the sour cream, cheese, pico, etc...)
2.  In a large skillet saute the onions in the oil until they start to caramelize.
3.  Add in peppers and continue to saute until they are slightly caramelized or to your liking.
4.  Slice cooked chicken and add into skillet.  Top with fresh ground  pepper.  Remove from heat.
5.  Serve immediately and enjoy!

If you have any chicken and/or onions and peppers left you can use them for these yummy quesadillas. :)
