|This is what the finished fajita will look like|
First step is to gather all of the ingredients:
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (partially frozen is good because it's easier to cut into strips)
2 bell peppers (2 green or 1 red, 1 green)
1 medium yellow onion
5 garlic cloves, minced (you'll notice I use a jarred minced garlic because it's hard to find good garlic where I live - 1 teaspoon = 1 clove of garlic)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried cilantro
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons liquid smoke
juice from 1 lime (I couldn't find any good limes so I used a couple squirts from one of those plastic limes)
2 tablespoons butter
fajita tortillas and any extras you want like cheese and sour cream
At Home:Slice the chicken in 2 to 3 inch strips (big enough they won't fall through a grill grate) and place the strips in a large zipper bag. Add the olive oil, salt, cayenne pepper, dried cilantro, dried oregano, cumin, liquid smoke and lime juice and place the bag in the refrigerator.
|The Chicken Step Completed|
De-seed and core the peppers, slice into strips. Slice the onion into strips and mix with the peppers. Store the onions and peppers in an air-tight container and also place in the refrigerator.
|The Vegetable Step Completed|
At Camp:For this part you have to imagine you are at camp. I have the same pans in the motor home as I do my house so that helps with the imagination. I cut my chicken into too small of pieces so I had to use a frying pan instead of grilling on the BBQ or fire grate (it was also really windy outside so the BBQ wouldn't have been very fun). I waited 3 days to do this step because I figured that would be the timeline when I would make it at camp (Day 1 prepare and pack, Day 2 leave for camp and eat on the road or quick sandwich after while we're setting up camp, Day 3 you're set up and ready to make a dinner like this.)
Take out your chicken, pepper and onion mixture and the 2 tablespoons of butter.
Combine everything into a tortilla, add cheese, sour cream if you want and enjoy!
