For serving:
Beth’s Chunky Guacamole Click Here for Recipe:
8 Tortillas

Mix together the marinade in a large bowl. Place chicken inside for 30 mins.

Meanwhile, sauté onions in a skillet until tender and caramelized. Add peppers. Cook peppers allowing them to rest in pan to become slightly charred. For this a cast-iron skillet is ideal. Once tender season with salt and pepper and oregano. Set aside.

Grill chicken and limes on an indoor grill pan 5-7 mins each side until cooked through. Remove and transfer to a plate and allow to rest.

Then grill 8 tortillas on each pan both sides.

Slice chicken on the diagonal and place on a large platter, with the limes. Then place the peppers and tortillas. Serve with guacamole!
