Ingredients

  • Strawberry Salsa
    • 1 1/2 cup Florida strawberries, chopped small
    • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed and chopped
    • 1/2 red onion, diced
    • 1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
    • 1 lime, juiced
    • salt and pepper to taste
  • Chicken Fajitas
    • 1 lb chicken breast
    • 1 tbsp cooking oil of choice (evoo, spray, etc)
    • 1 tbsp ground cumin
    • 1 lime, juiced
    • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
    • tortillas of choice
    • avocado, optional
    • goat cheese, optional

Method

To make the strawberry salsa, mix all ingredients well and allow to chill at minimum 1 hour.

For the Chicken Fajitas – to a bowl, add chicken, oil, lime juice, cumin, salt and pepper. Mix well to coat chicken. Allow to marinate 30 minutes.

Heat non-stick skillet to medium heat. Grill chicken breasts for 5-6 minutes, and flip. If chicken resists, side is not done. Once done, flip and grill other side until done. Allow to cool.

Once cooled, slice chicken into strips and add to tortillas. Top with salsa, avocado, and goat cheese.
