Directions

  1. To make the fajita seasoning mix, combine all spices into a bowl and mix well together.
  2. Mix the Fajita seasoning and lime juice in a zip lock bag and add in chicken breasts.
  3. When sealing the bag try to get as much air out as possible, and marinate for a minimum or 30 minutes. **Note** the longer it marinates the more flavour it will have. If marinating over night add the optional 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 tbsp of salt.
  4. Grill chicken breast over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes per side (or until the center reaches a temperature of 165°F).
  5. Let chicken site for 5 minutes and slice before serving.
