Scale

Ingredients

  • For the Fajitas:
  • 2 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 sweet bell peppers (mixture of colors,) seeded and thinly sliced
  • 2 onions, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 TB olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • For the Seasoning Mixture:
  • 3 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Other:
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • Fajita-sized tortillas
  • Salsa and/or Guacamole
  • Shredded cheese
  • Freshly chopped green onion/cilantro for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine all Seasoning Mixture ingredients and whisk to incorporate well. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 425F, with rack on upper middle position. Lightly grease a large rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Thoroughly towel-dry the chicken pieces and pound to an even thickness (1/2″ thick.) Slice into strips 1/2″ wide. Be sure chicken doesn’t contain excess moisture. Toss chicken with seasoning mixture to coat well.
  4. Place bell peppers and onions onto greased baking sheet. Sprinkle top of veggies evenly with 1 tsp kosher salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Place chicken slices evenly on top; try not to overlap pieces. Evenly drizzle olive oil over the chicken to coat as evenly as possible.
  5. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes, remove from oven and give it a quick toss to evenly re-coat, and place back in oven for another 10 minutes or until chicken is just cooked.
  6. Drizzle desired amount of lime juice over the fajitas and serve immediately with garnishes of your choice.

Notes

Cilantro Lime Rice or Avocado Black Bean Dip are a fantastic accompaniment to this dish!
