Mesquite Chicken and Bacon Fajitas

I had some fajitas once at a chain restaurant....Chilis or Applebees I think....that had bacon and mushrooms. It was an unexpected twist. I used that idea as an inspiration for this recipe where I used a bottled Mesquite Marinade (because I can't seem to create one I like), chicken, portabello mushroom strips, bacon, and a nice sauce. I've served it several times (although not in a few years) and it is a hit every time. Let me know how you like it!

  • Place chicken in a plastic re-sealable bag and peppers, onion, and mushrooms in a separate bag. Pour about 2/3 of the bottled marinade in the chicken bag and the other 1/3 in the vegetable bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.
  • In the meantime, make the sauce by whisking together all of the sauce ingredients. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Remove the chicken and vegetables from the marinating bags. Grill Chicken until cooked, about 3-5 minutes on each side. Grill vegetables until crisp and tender.
  • Slice chicken and vegetables into 1/4 - 1/2 inch slices.
  • Arrange on a serving platter with ramekin of sauce, sour cream, and cheese. Sprinkle bacon chunks on top. Serve with your favorite warmed tortillas and bean side dish recipe.
