Chicken Fajitas

Chicken breasts, sliced into strips
1 onion, sliced
2 green bell peppers, sliced
2 other peppers, slices

1-2 t cumin
1 t chili powder
1/2 t garlic powder
1 t black pepper
1 t salt
2 T olive oil
1 t lime juice

Mix seasoning. I usually double it. Pour 1/3 over veggies. Stir well. Freeze or marinate over night. Pour other 2/3 over chicken. Stir well. Freeze or marinate over night. I also have cooked it immediately and it is yummy! Serve with salsa and chips. 

Cook veggies first then remove. Cook chicken then add veggies back at end before serving.
