Brandon's Chicken Fajitas

As I am still mentally stuck in the festivities of birthday mode here in my house, I thought a nice Chicken Fajita recipe I learned from my very hipster/chef friend Brandon would be in order to keep the spirit of the season for the weekend going still.  This recipe is super simple and only requires a bit of time for the chicken to cook fully.  Of course, if chicken isn't your thing, you can always swap out for beef or pork. (Or imitation meat like this HERE)

What you'll need:

1.  Chicken (Pork or Beef)
2.  Worcestershire Sauce
3.  Onion (Diced)
4.  "Fajita Seasoning"
5.  Salt and Pepper (to taste)
6.  Whole Lime (Cut in half or purchased Lime Juice)
7.  Minced Garlic

•Cut the chicken into stripes, long, narrow stripes work best because the chicken will cook faster.

• Place the chicken strips into a medium-sized skillet and cook over medium heat.  Add Worcestershire Sauce, salt, pepper and Fajita Seasoning to the chicken as it cooks.

 •  Add the lime juice, freshly squeezed from a whole lime or 100% juice from concentrate. 

• Cook the chicken till almost done and add minced garlic along with the diced onions.

 • Cook until onions are soft and chicken has soaked up most of the juice in the skillet.

• Serve on a flour or corn tortilla along side guacamole, sour cream or even a bed of black beans.
