Margarita Chicken Fajitas

I apologize for the lack of posts lately.  Life has gotten a bit crazy and my luck with trying new things hasn't been real good lately and I only like to post the best ones here!!  Well I finally hit the JACKPOT with this recipe.  It was oh so DELICIOUS!! After making fajitas the family kept eating just the chicken because it had such an amazing flavor.  I think it could be used for many different dishes. Oh YUM!!
Margarita Chicken Fajitas
4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used about 14 chicken tenders)
1 cup thawed frozen limeade concentrate
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 onion sliced
1-2 yellow or orange peppers, julienned
1 Tablespoon olive oil
 8-10 tortillas
shredded cheddar cheese
diced tomatoes
diced avocados
sour cream
lime wedges

Place chicken in a large resealable baggie.  Add the limeade concentrate, salt and pepper.  Seal bag and turn to coat.  Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.

Remove chicken from the marinade and grill, broil, bake or pan fry until cooked through. *Make sure you grease what ever cooking surface you are using. Slice ore dice the chicken pieces.

Heat a skillet and add 1 Tablespoon olive oil saute onions and peppers until tender.  Season with a little salt and pepper.  Add some red pepper flakes if you like the heat!!
Layer the chicken, peppers and onions on your heated tortilla.
Add any other toppings you desire. 
Fold up and enjoy!!
Next time I am going to use the whole can of limeade an marinade extra chicken for the freezer or just for other dishes!!
DELICIOUS and HUGE hit with the entire family!!
