Chicken Fajita Sandwich

I love chicken fajitas! When menu planning last week I knew I would have extra hamburger buns & chicken. So I came up with a chicken fajita sandwich. I've only made fajitas on the stove but I wanted to grill the chicken.

So I went online to see what I could find for recipes. I've always just used a store bought package. After making this, I'll always make my own from now on!
The Marinade I made:
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2-in thick
  • I put it all in the bag and let it marinate for 2 hours.
    I cut up and cooked one green pepper & one onion.
    I grilled the chicken & buns.
    I cut up tomato slices and made some guacamole before contstructing the sandwich. It was SO GOOD! The next day for lunch I had some tortilla wraps and made one with those. Another winner!
