My Favorite Fajita Marinade

READY IN: 24hrs 15mins
Recipe by kitchenslave03

We prefer chicken to steak fajitas in our house, but I'm sure it would taste great with beef as well. I ALWAYS marinate boneless, skinless breasts OVERNIGHT, grill, and slice thinly. I also use half the marinade for sliced onions and peppers, which I marinate in a seperate ziplok bag, then saute in a hot skillet. If serving buffet style, I lower the flame in the skillet, add a little of the veggie marinade, and the sliced, grilled chicken to the skillet. That way, nothing gets cold or dried out.

very nice... I skipped the broth, added a couple of tbsp. of tequila and only marinated for about 2 1/2 hrs,grilled the chicken, it was very tender. Thanks for a good base marinade!
