Get dinner on the table even faster by prepping and marinating the chicken and vegetables overnight, then fire up the grill and dinner is done.

Instructions

Whisk together orange juice, oil, and chipotle for the marinade.

Arrange chicken, peppers, and onion in a baking dish; pour marinade over the top. Cover baking dish and refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight, turning chicken a couple of times.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil. Remove chicken and vegetables from marinade; season with salt and black pepper. Discard marinade.

Grill chicken, covered, until a thermometer inserted into the thickest parts registers 165°, 3–4 minutes per side; transfer to a plate and let rest 5 minutes. Grill onion until softened and charred, about 5 minutes per side; transfer to a plate. Grill peppers 5 minutes, turning once; transfer to a plate.

Cut chicken and peppers into strips, and onion slices in half; toss with cilantro. Serve fajitas with tortillas.

Keep your knife parallel to the cutting board to ensure you halve the chicken breasts evenly.
