Last night I made what I would say is probably my favorite thing to grill. I call them my redneck fajitas and they are fairly simple and straight forward. I will apologize ahead of time because I did not get pictures of the preparation or grilling the actual chicken but I'm sure you all will get the point by the pictures I do have. So here we go!
First, start off with three boneless skinless chicken breasts. I slice them across the breast into about 1/8"-1/4' thick strips. This allows them to cook pretty quick.
For the marinade I use:
-1/4 cup olive oil
-1/2 tbsp. salt
-1/2 tbsp. black pepper (might want to use less depending on how much you like. I like quite a bit)
-1 tbsp. garlic powder
-1 tbsp. onion powder
Place all of this in a large Ziploc bag and mix until the chicken is coated well. Let it set in the fridge for about an hour. I have done it from 1 hr all the way up to 4 and can't really tell a difference.
Second, I use 1 large onion, 1 large bell pepper, one container of sliced baby bella mushrooms and 1 bundle of green onions cut into about 1/2" long pieces. I then place them in a large Ziploc and add the same mixture as the chicken minus the onion powder (I feel it is not necessary since you are using onion).
When ready to cook, I place my sautee pan on the gas grill and bring the grill to 350-400. I cook the veggies first until they are almost done. They should still have quite a bit of crunch to them but not be raw. I then place them in a foil pan and cover then set them on the other end of the grill away from the direct heat. Next I throw on the chicken and cook it until there is no pink left. It will cook fairly fast so don't dry it out. Right as it is about to finish, I dump the vegetable mixture back in with the chicken and allow them to finish up together. Note: This step is not really necessary but I have tried it a couple different ways and I think this one gives the best flavor...It kind of uses the veggies as extra seasoning as they finish up with the chicken.
You are done! I usually eat them like a taco with white queso on them or I put them in a large shell with cheese and make a fajita quesadilla on the stove. I have also done the mixture over chips and covered in white cheese like Mexican nachos but my favorite way is to eat it cold the next day with no shell or cheese. Thanks for looking and I will add the pictures here shortly from my phone. Have a good one!
