    Elmotoo's Note:

    This is an evolved recipe. I started with a recipe for cinnamon lime fajitas, but I'm not keen on the potatoes. I didn't have peppers; but I do have cabbage...Look, a recipe for fajitas using cabbage! But it's raw and it's winter....nahhh. This is what I came up with & as weird as it sounds, it is delicious! At least to us - everybody, even THE PICKY ONE, loved this. No leftovers for the 4 of us but it's easily doubled. It says 8 tacos because that is the yield I got with corn tortillas. Please remember that flour tortillas are often bigger & will need more filling. I hope someone else enjoys this, too!

    1. 1
      In a 9x13" baking dish, sprinkle chicken with salt, cinnamon & chili powder. Add lime juice & swish it all around; marinate for awhile, half hour or so while the oven preheats.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 450°F When hot, add pan of chicken for about a 1/2 hour until cooked. Remove from pan to a cutting board to cool a bit before slicing thinly (like a flank steak) and returning to pan.
    3. 3
      While the chicken is in the oven --.
    4. 4
      If you have one, a 12" cast iron skillet is perfect for this. Heat 3TB oil over medium to low heat. Add onion & seasonings. I used regular 'chili powder' but next time might use ancho or even chipotle. Slowly caramelize the onion. Add cabbage, oregano, lime juice & salt. Toss until wilted. Remove from heat.
    5. 5
      If using flour tortillas, warm and make fajitas! If using corn, briefly fry in hot oil and make tacos! Heck, roll into a tortilla & make enchiladas! Go for it!
    6. 6
      Add chicken & cabbage/onion mixture to wrappy device of your choice & enjoy! We didn't use salsa, sour cream, guacamole, or cheese but you could!

      Delicious! I used 3 very large chicken breasts (2.38 lb) and a 16 oz bag of "angel hair cole slaw" (pre-shredded cabbage). Otherwise followed the recipe except I forgot to add the seasonings to the onions until after they'd been cooking for about 10 minutes (though I don't think this affected anything). Served in small flour tortillas (the ones that are the size of corn tortillas). Thanks for sharing!
