GUYS! It has been SO long since I have posted a cook this! not that! post! I have been makng banana nutell crepes (FAV!) and I also made this "loaded alfredo" thing last week from there but honestly you guys would NOT want to try it. It. Was. Gross. Never making it again.
Tonight I made fajitas. Now... this is part cook this not that and part Giada De Laurentiis.
Cook this! Not that! Marinade Version. (I did not use this version)
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tbsp chopped chipotle pepper
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp ground cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
Giada version. (the one I DID use)
1/2 cup OJ
1/4 cup EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil for those who don't watch Rachel Ray)
2 large limes, zested and juiced
1/4 cup agave nectar or 3 tbsp brown sugar (I used the sugar)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt, plus extra for seasoning (I used sea salt)
2 boneleess skinless chicken thighs (we used breasts)
1 (12-16 oz) skirt of flank steak (we only used chicken)
The rest of the ingredients I used:
1 tbsp canola oil (I used EVOO)
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
2 onions, sliced (I only used one)
In a small bowl, combine all the marinade ingredients (which ever you choose to use). Pour the mixture into a 1 gallon-size resealable bag. Add the chicken (and other meat you want) tothe bag. Cook This! says to marinate for and hour. Giada says to do 4 hours. I did it over night.
Put a grill pan over medium-high heat (we used a george forman haha). Obviously remove the chicken from the bag and place on grill. (SAVE THE MARINADE per Giada) Grill the chicken 6-8 minutes on each side or until center is no longer pink.
In a separate pan add oil, onions, and bell peppers. Cook until charred and carmelized (about 10 minutes)
Add chicken, veggies, and marinade. Toss. Enjoy with warm corn tortillas, sour cream, and whatever else you want!

Giada damage? Unknown, but who cares! I combined the recipes and it was the bomb.
