Grilled Chicken Fajita Roll Up Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, cayenne (if using) and cilantro. Set aside.
  2. For the chicken breasts, if you purchased pre-sliced chicken cutlets then skip to the next step. If using chicken breasts, slice them into 2 even slices and firmly pound the chicken using the smooth side of a meat tenderizer to an even thickness of about ¼ inch.
  3. Place chicken cutlets into a large reseal-able freezer bag and pour marinade over top, making sure they are completely coated. Allow chicken to marinate for a minimum of one hour
  4. Once chicken has marinated, evenly place 6 bell pepper slices in the middle of the chicken cutlet, roll up and secure with a toothpick. Repeat this step until all the cutlets have been rolled up.
  5. Brush tops of chicken with remaining marinade and grill the chicken until completely cooked. Serve and enjoy! (You can also bake the chicken in a baking dish at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes)
