  • 2 lbs chicken breast boneless, skinless
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil extra virgin
  • 2 tbsp fajita seasoning (homemade or store bought)
  • 2 tbsp lime juice fresh


  • To make marinade, whisk together the vegetable oil, lime juice, and fajita seasoning.
  • Poke chicken all over with a fork. Place the chicken in a dish or zip top bag and pour the marinade over the chicken to cover completely. Refrigerate for up to 4 hours, with a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • Heat the grill to medium heat and brush with oil to prevent sticking. Place chicken on the grill and cook for 4-6 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Cook to an internal temperature of 165˚F.
  • Once done, remove chicken from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Then serve warm. Enjoy!
