It’s been awhile! But that is what happens when your 8-month old, affectionally known as Chicken Nugget, has an ear infection in both ears – your blogging habit falls to the wayside. But we still need to eat and luckily he is feeling better.
Enter these balsamic lime fajitas! The marinade is simple, which makes this a perfect weeknight meal. The chicken marinades while you prep and cook the veggies and the entire meal can be made within 30 minutes. Coincidentally my baby will only nap in 30 minutes increments. Perfect!
2 chicken breasts, diced
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup lime juice (about one lime)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon adobo seasoning
salt & pepper
1 green pepper
1 small onion
avocado, for topping
Begin by mixing the marinade by combining the balsamic vinegar, lime juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, adobo, salt and pepper. Pour over chicken and let marinade for 20 minutes – or as long as you can.
Heat a large sauté pan and cook the pepper and onion until soft, about five minutes. Remove from pan. Add a little olive oil into the pan and cook the chicken through.
Build your fajitas with the chicken, peppers, onions and avocado.
