 Chicken Fajitas

 

Chicken Fajitas

Ingredients:

 

  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 4 chicken breasts, skinless, boneless
  • 3 bell peppers, red, yellow, green, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced

Seasoning

  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 3 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne, optional
  • 1 tsp garlic powder, or minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To serve

  • 6 whole wheat tortillas
  • Lime, wedges
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped – optional
  • Sour cream – optional

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, add all fajita seasoning ingredients and mix well
  2. On a work surface, cut chicken breasts, onions and peppers into less than ½ inch strips
  3. Plan a pan over high heat and add 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  4. When the pan is hot, add chicken and half of the fajita seasoning. Avoid chicken from overlapping. Stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through, about 5-6 minutes. Once cooked, remove the chicken strips to a plate and cover them in foil to keep warm.
  5. In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of oil. As soon as the oil is hot, add the bell pepper and onion slices. Add the rest of the fajita seasoning and sauté until crisp-tender. Add the chicken back to the skillet and stir to combine. Then remove from the heat and drizzle with fresh lime juice.
  6. Heat the tortillas up in the microwave
  7. Spoon the chicken, peppers and onions into the hot tortillas. Squeeze lime juice and garnish with optional cilantro and sour cream.
