The Grill

Mike got a grill as a graduation present/home warming present from my parents. He won't let me touch it yet (don't worry I will one day) but I have prepared some really good meals for it. The latest and instant family favorite is Chicken Fajitas.
I got this recipe out of The Weber Gas Grill Cookbook which came with the grill.

Chicken Fajitas
For Marinade:
1/4 cup olive oil
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice (juice from 1 lime)
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp ground cumin

6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 red onion, cut into 1/2" slices
4 plum tomatoes, cut into 1/2" slices
1 red or yellow bell pepper, stem and seeds removed and cut into quarters
6 large flour tortillas
1 avocado, slice

To make the marinade:
In a shallow, non-metal container combine the marinade ingredients. Add chicken to the marinade, turning to coat each side. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, turning occasionally.

Remove chicken breast from the marinade and discard the marinade. Grill the chicken breast and vegetables over direct medium heat until the meat is no longer pink and vegetables are tender.
Review: This was by far the best Fajitas I have ever prepared at home. I didn't make all the veggies listed about just regular onion and peppers. Mike said that it tasted just like what you get at a restaurant. He was telling everyone about them and how HE wants to make them for everyone. Can't wait to make this recipe again!!
