Ingredients
  

Chicken Fajitas:

  • 3 medium chicken breast (boneless and skinless)
  • 3 medium bell peppers (tricolors)
  • 1 medium onion

Fajita Marinade:

  • ½ tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

For Serving:

  • tortillas
  • avocado
  • shredded cheese
  • sour cream
  • salsa
  • lime wedge

Instructions
 

  • Prepare fajita marinade by adding all the ingredients into a small mixing bowl and whisking together.
  • Cut your chicken breast into ½-1-inch-wide strips. Place chicken strips into a large mixing bowl and pour in ¾ of the prepared marinade. Toss chicken in marinade to coat. Place in the fridge to marinate for 20-30 minutes or overnight.
  • Prepare your fajita veggies by slicing them into thin strips and set them aside. Pour the remaining ¼ of the prepared marinade on your veggies and toss to coat.
  • Heat a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray or oil over medium heat. Add prepared sliced veggies and sauté until softened yet still crispy. Set aside cooked veggies on a plate for later.
  • Place marinated chicken into the skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until chicken strips are cooked through.
  • Add veggies back into the skillet with cooked chicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve in tortillas with optional serving ingredients.
