Chicken fajitas

Oh my goodness I made these the other night and they were gobbled down about as fast as I set the plate down. I made some home made nachos and wow it was like we were at a restaurant. As you see I like to do my fajitas home style that way everyone can choose their own toppings.

1-1/2 pounds chicken breast (about 8)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
Coarse salt and ground pepper
3 orange bell peppers (ribs and seeds removed), thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
8 flour tortillas (6-inch)
Fresh cilantro leaves, for serving
1/2 cup sour cream, for serving
Lime wedges, for serving

1. Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Arrange chicken on a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil; rub with 1 tablespoon oil. Sprinkle with chili powder, and season with salt and pepper. Broil, without turning, until chicken is opaque throughout, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven; set aside.

2. On another rimmed baking sheet lined with foil, toss peppers, garlic, and remaining tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Broil, tossing occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender and slightly charred, 6 to 8 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, thinly slice chicken crosswise. Stack and wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel; microwave on high until warm, about 1 minute. Transfer chicken and pepper mixture to a platter, and serve with tortillas, cilantro, sour cream, and lime wedges.

Yields: 4
