frecklefaerie's Chicken Fajitas

2 tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 cup Orange Juice
1 tbsp Chili powder
1/2 tbsp Cilantro (I use dried, use a full tbsp for fresh)
2 tbsp Minced Garlic
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

3 chicken breasts (1-1.5 lbs), cut into fajita-sized strips
1 medium red onion, cut into slices
1-2 peppers cut into strips (I like to use red/yellow/orange, sometimes green)

Fajita sized tortillas

Preheat the oven to 325F
-Combine the oil, oj, and spices
a. Marinate the chicken in it for a few hours
b. Don't marinate for a few hours (I've done it both ways, both taste good)
-Cook the chicken and marinade over medium heat until in a skillet or wok or whatever pan until the chicken is white on the outside. Stir it a bit to be sure everything is covered in the spices.
-Add onions and peppers and stir some more.
-Cook the whole thing until the veggies are tender or until the chicken is done. (I like to do it until most of the oj has cooked off, which usually means I turn up the heat toward the end.)
-Wrap the tortillas in aluminium foil and put in the oven for 8-10 minutes

Serve by placing chicken, onion, and peppers in the tortillas. Add other fajita fixins as you like (salsa, cheese, lettuce, tomato, etc.)
