Chicken Fajitas

Tonight we decided to make some chicken fajitas, since we once again have access to a grill. We threw together the marinade about 5-6 hours in advance, and it turned out wonderfully.

Marinade (measurements are approximate)
3 tbsp Goya Brand Adobo fajita seasoning
juice of 3 limes
4 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1.5 tsp cumin
1 heaping tsp smoked bittersweet Spanish paprika
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce (for chicken)
1 heaping tsp chili powder
1-1.5 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup margarita (premixed Jose Cuervo)
3 tbsp dried oregano crushed leaves
dash of powdered thyme

We marinaded two sliced chicken breasts, one sliced onion and one sliced green pepper in this mixture for around 5-6 hours, then grilled over high heat until cooked, around 10-15 minutes. We used about 1/2 cup of the marinade into the grilling pan, to help further concentrate flavor. Serve, as typical, with warmed tortillas, cheese, tomatos, lettuce, guacamole, salsa or whatever else you so choose.

During the marinade the chicken developed a brilliant and sharp lime flavor that was just outstanding.
