Chipotle Lime Fajita Chicken

One of our local grocery stores makes a marinated chipotle lime fajita flavored chicken breast.  I read the list of ingredients and came up with one.  It's good on pork chops, too.

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, butterflied if they're large
1 T. of chipotle in adobo sauce (TIP:  freeze the remainder on wax paper in spoonfuls and then transfer to a freezer proof bag or container)
Juice of 1 lime
1 T. vegetable or olive oil
1 t. fajita seasoning (see below)

Put the chicken in a plastic food safe bag or container. 
Mix all the rest of the ingredients together and then add to the chicken.  Marinate for several hours. 
Take out of the bag and grill.

Fajita Seasoning Mix: (if you can't find one that is pre-made)

2 t. chili powder
1 t. salt
1 t. paprika
1/2 t. onion powder
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1/4 t. ground cumin

Mix all together and store in an old spice/herb container.
