Time-Saving Tips: The vegetables can be prepped earlier in the day.
Let's see what we need.
We're ready to cook.
Combine the chicken and the rub ingredients together in a pyrex; set aside.
Brush the vegetables and lightly with oil; season with salt and pepper.
Once the chicken and vegetables are prepared preheat the grill. Once the grill is about 400-450 degrees place the chicken and vegetables on the grill. After a couple of minutes, the chicken should have nice grill marks and are ready to turn over. Cook a couple of minutes until they are done. Turn the vegetables when the edges are just starting to brown and then grill an additional 2 minutes. Ideally, the vegetables are still firm when you remove them from the grill.
It's ready! This is such a fresh and healthy way to prepare fajitas. Just slice everything up and serve. Of course, don't forget to add flour tortillas, guacamole, and sour cream. It's the perfect meal to serve a crowd especially since kids and grown-ups all love these.
