Make Paula Deen's Gold Medal Sizzling Fajitas by first creating a spicy marinade. In a bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. Add 1 minced garlic clove, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and 1 teaspoon onion powder. Season with a dash of hot sauce and salt and pepper. Pour the marinade into a bag, and add 1 1/2 pounds of chicken breast, tossing the meat to coat. Marinate the chicken for at least 20 minutes. Grill the meat at medium heat for five minutes on each side, then cut the breasts into strips.

Meanwhile, saute 1 sliced onion, 1 sliced red bell pepper and 1 sliced green bell pepper in 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Season with salt and pepper. Warm flour tortillas in an oven, then fill them with chicken breast strips and the cooked vegetables. Top the fajitas with shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, sour cream and guacamole. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the fajitas, and serve.
