2 tablespoons lime or lemon Juice
1/2 tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil (season)
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon fresh oregano
1/4 cup or 1 tablespoon fresh basil

Method:
Rinse The Best Dressed Chicken breasts with lime, or lemon juice and water, and drain thoroughly. Season chicken with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, herbs, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Heat oil in an oven-proof skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken breasts for 3-4 minutes per side.

Cut each bell pepper in half, remove the seeds and toss in a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Char bell peppers on the stovetop or 12 minutes using a tong and place in a bowl with cling wrap for easy removal of outer skin. Cut into 3/4-inch strips. Shred or cut the cabbage into thin strips. Wash and cut a head of lettuce also into thin strips. Warm each tortilla in a pan on low heat for 1 minute per side.

Remove sour cream from refrigerator and add desired fresh or fresh herbs. Assemble platter with all components to make 6 fajitas. Start with strips of chicken in the centre, red onions on one side, bell peppers and cabbage and on the opposite side warmed tortillas with a small bowl of sour cream topped with fresh thyme.

Garnish platter or skillet with fresh basil leaves and wedges of lemon *optional* tortillas may be placed on parchment paper to keep warm and dry. Add melted cheese to assembled tortillas, if desired.
