PREPARATION:

In a small bowl, combine all marinade ingredients. Whisk until well incorporated. Set aside 2 tbsp of the marinade for the peppers. Slice chicken breast horizontally to create four fillets.

Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, chipotle chile powder, lime juice, salt, and cilantro in a small bowl. Seal and refrigerate until needed.

Remove the marinated chicken from the fridge and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Heat oil in a medium size skillet to medium high. Sear one side of the chicken until charred. Flip and cover for 4-5 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 F. Remove chicken from heat and allow to rest 2-3 minutes. Slice chicken into thin strips or cubed to bite size pieces.

In the same skillet, add and the reserved 2 tbsp of marinade to cook the bell peppers. Saute the bell peppers until tender. In a small pan or toaster oven, lightly toast tortillas until golden brown.

To serve, layer the tortillas with chicken, bell peppers, and additional toppings. Top the fajitas generously with chipotle lime crema and enjoy!
