CHEF: Kurt Steinacher, Wegmans

 1 pkg (16 oz) Food You Feel Good About Cleaned & Cut Sliced Peppers & Onions
1 sweet red pepper, seeded, cut in 1/4-inch slices
2 Tbsp Wegmans BBQ Seasoning Shak'r, divided
4 Tbsp Wegmans Basting Oil, divided
1 1/2 lbs Wegmans Lemon & Garlic Marinated Chicken Breast Cutlets
4 Wegmans Fajita Tortillas, Gordita Style

 

 

You'll Need: 1 EZ Foil All-Purpose Pan (13 1/4 x 9 5/8 x 2 3/4-inch), heavy-duty aluminum foil

Directions:
Preheat grill on HIGH 10 min.

  1. Clean grill with wire brush. Using a soft cloth, coat grill grate lightly with vegetable oil.
     
  2. Toss peppers and onions, red pepper, 1 Tbsp BBQ seasoning, and 2 Tbsp basting oil in a large bowl. Spoon into foil pan. Cover pan tightly with large piece of foil, sealing well. Reduce heat to MEDIUM. Place pan on grill; close lid.
     
  3. Cook 10 min, shaking pan occasionally. Remove from grill. (Keep warm while grilling chicken.) Return heat to HIGH.
     
  4. Drizzle chicken with 1 Tbsp basting oil (too much oil will cause flare-ups on grill). Sear chicken on grill 2 min until it has changed color one-quarter of way up from bottom. Turn over; sear 1-3 min.
     
  5. Turn over chicken. Cook 1-3 min; turn over again. Reduce heat to MEDIUM; cook 12-15 min until internal temp reaches 165 degrees. Check by inserting thermometer into thickest part of chicken.
     
  6. Transfer chicken to clean platter.
     
  7. Brush remaining 1 Tbsp basting oil on one side of tortilla shells; place oiled-side-down on grill. Brush tops with basting oil and sprinkle with remaining 1 Tbsp BBQ seasoning. Turn after 30 seconds when slightly browned. Grill second side 30 seconds; remove from heat.
     
  8. Slice chicken very thin; portion evenly onto tortillas. Top with peppers and onions.
