Chicken Fajitas Cinnamon Style

So, this Saturday I made my husband do the lovely chicken fajitas with cinnamon. It wasn't hard to make him do them! These fajitas is not so hot, but very flavourful. We have served them to friends and people seem to love them! So do we.

This time we didn't have any guacamole with our fajitas, because the avocados in our supermarket were bad. Too bad. Still, yummy it was!

And here is the recipe as he did them:

finely grated zest and juice of 1.5 lime
1½ tablespoons sugar
½ tablespoons dried oregano
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¾ teaspoon cinnamon

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 large onion
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
½ tablespoon chile flakes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Combine all ingredients for the marinade in a bowl. On some occasions I add a splash of tequila to the marinade. Slice the chicken breasts into ½-inch wide strips and put in the
marinade. Set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Cut the onion in half and slice it thinly. Remove stems and seeds from the bell peppers, then slice them into ½-inch wide strips.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Stir-fry the marinated chicken (and some of the marinade) for 5-6 minutes, then add peppers, onions and chile flakes and cook for another 3-4 minutes.

Serve with warm tortillas, guacamole, salsa fresca, cheese and sour cream.
