~A Simply Delicious Recipe~
Chicken Fajita Grill
The first day of Spring has just arrived and with it the beginning of warm sunny days, budding flowers and trees, and thankfully, the end of a really nasty Winter for a lot of us.
I just love to cook and as the days begin to warm-up, I begin to think of getting out the old grill and cooking up something really tasty. However, it’s not quite warm enough yet for me to do that, so I’m going to give you a recipe that while great for grilling, is still quite delicious when cooked in the oven. This healthy little gem is a combination of chicken, ripe avocado, and red peppers, along with yummy honey-corn-cakes that complement this dish so well. The unique combination of flavors in this recipe is truly wonderful. The first time we made this at my house, while still chewing the first bite, we all looked up at each other and said “Mmm…this is sooo good!…totally breaking the rule of etiquette of not talking with food in your mouth. Ha!
I make up the marinade and let the chicken rest in it overnight in the fridge, but you can also easily make it up in the morning and have it ready to cook by dinnertime. Marinating the chicken for about eight hours imparts a flavor that can only be describe as heavenly.
Therefore, without further adieu, here is the recipe that is soon to be one of your favorite go-to meals when you want something really tasty and different to serve to family and friends.
