  Zucchini 2
  Red bell pepper 1
  Yellow onions 2
  Boneless chicken breast 1 Pound
  Olive oil 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Liquid smoke 1 Teaspoon
  Apple cider vinegar 2 Tablespoon
  Honey 1 Teaspoon
  Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Fresh lime juice 1 Tablespoon
  Worcestershire sauce 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm) (minced)
  Oregano leaves 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Soy sauce 1 Teaspoon

Combine the ingredients for the marinade and place 2/3 in a glass bowl or Ziploc bag and the other 1/3 marinade in another glass bowl or Ziploc bag.

Rinse chicken in cold water and slice into 1/4 inch strips. I happen to like chicken thighs so I use them in this recipe. If you are concerned about fat intake use chicken breast.

Remove any remaining fat. Add chicken to the bowl with 2/3 of the marinade.

Slice the vegetables and place them in the bowl with 1/3 of the marinade. Refrigerate both dishes for 2 hours or more.

This is a great dish to serve at a party because you can do most of the preparation for this chicken fajita recipe ahead of time leaving you free to visit with your guests.

Grate your cheese and then cover and place in the refrigerator.

Do not prepare the guacamole recipe more than 2 hours before you are ready to serve it. Guacamole needs to be freshly prepared to be at its' best.
