David's Fajita Chicken

This recipe brought back a ton of memories.  David is dear friend who actually lived with us for a time.  I wrote about that time in this article Bringing People Together in the Kitchen.  And I also mention him in the article 10 Fun and Easy Ways For Reaching Out to College Students.

Cut raw chicken into bite sized pieces.  Mix all the ingredients together and pour over the chicken. Store in a airtight container for at least 2 hours, but you can leave overnight for an even better marinade.  

Place the chicken in a large hot skillet.  At medium heat.  Cook chicken all the way through. To determine if it is completely done cut into two or three of the largest pieces and make sure they are white in the middle with no pink.  

I usually serve with tortillas, tortilla chips and shredded cheese.  For toppings you could have guacamole, salsa, tomatoes, sour cream and/or small sweet bell peppers that you sautéed in a bit of oil in a skillet until softened.  

My kids cheer when I am making David's chicken...your people are sure to love it!
