Honey-Citrus Chicken Fajitas

I love it when I can used left overs from one meal to make the preparation for the next meal that much faster and easier.  I had some Honey-Citrus Vinaigrette left over in the fridge and I knew it would be just the thing to spice up our traditional chicken fajitas.  The vinaigrette added so much flavor.  A fajita filling this good absolutely deserves to be served on these soft homemade tortillas .  Top with avocado, tomato, cheese and a little sour cream to complete the dish.

Honey-Citrus Chicken Fajitas
2 Pounds Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast, cubed
2 Tablespoons Oil
3/4 Teaspoon Cumin
Salt
Pepper
1 Large Yellow Onion, chopped
1 Large Green Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Jalapeno, diced(optional)
1 Clove Garlic, minced
1/2 Bunch of Cilantro, minced
1/3 Cup Honey Citrus Vinaigrette, recipe follows
Tortillas
Topping Options:
Avocado
Tomato
Lettuce
Cheese
Sour Cream
Drizzle of additional Honey Citrus Vinaigrette
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the oil.  Add the cubed chicken.  Season with cumin and salt and pepper to taste.  Wash, dry and chop the vegetables.  Add the onion, bell pepper, jalapeno and garlic to the skillet.  Cook until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the vegetables are tender.  Add the cilantro about 1-2 minutes before finished cooking.  Remove from heat.  Pour the vinaigrette over the chicken mixture and stir to combine.  Serve on tortillas with your choice of toppings.  Enjoy!
