This is a classic Mexican recipe, juicy chicken is seasoned, seared and cooked to perfection, then tossed with sauteed bell peppers and onions. These Chicken fajitas are a quick and easy, one pan, flavorful family meal. Or you can use it to make a couple meals throughout the week.
Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 16 minutes
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 onion, thinly sliced
3 bell peppers , thinly sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil ( If you are watching your diet, I recommend using PAM instead)
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
'Mission Carb Smart Tortilla Wraps'
Or put on a salad with Romaine and shredded lettuce
Low fat sour cream or use Plain Greek Yogurt as a substitute
Pico de Gallo
Add the fajitas seasoning ingredients to a small mixing bowl and stir together.
Generously sprinkle the fajita seasoning on both sides of the chicken and use your fingers to press it into the chicken.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sear the chicken breasts for about 7-8 minutes on each side.
While your chicken is cooking, cut the bell peppers and onion into thin slices.
Once the chicken has finished cooking, remove it to a plate and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Add the bell peppers and onion to the same skillet over medium heat and sauté for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently.
When the bell peppers are just about done sauteing, slice the chicken breasts into strips.
Add the chicken back into the skillet, add a squeeze of fresh lime juice and stir everything together.
Serve immediately with Carb Smart tortillas, or put on a salad or white rice.
Add extra toppings such as sour cream, Pico de Gallo and guacamole.
