Ingredients

1/4
cup lime juice
1
tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
2
teaspoons chili powder
2
teaspoons minced garlic (2 to 4 cloves)
4
boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2
red bell peppers, quartered
2

8
(8-inch) flour tortillas

TOPPINGS, IF DESIRED

Chopped tomatoes, avocado slices, chopped cilantro, sour cream and/or salsa

Directions

  • 1 Heat grill. In small bowl, combine lime juice, oil, chili powder and garlic; mix well. Brush mixture over chicken breast halves, bell peppers and zucchini. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes to marinate.
  • 2 When ready to grill, place chicken, bell peppers and zucchini on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, chicken is fork tender and juices run clear, turning once.
  • 3 To serve, slice chicken and vegetables; place in center of each tortilla. Top with desired toppings; roll up.
Tips  

If you choose avocado slices as a garnish, be sure to dip each piece in lemon or lime juice to prevent discoloration.

Omit the tortillas and serve the chicken and vegetables with white or brown rice.
