Ingredients
 

Chicken Tacos:

  • 3 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 bell peppers, red, yellow, green, thinly sliced
  • 1 lime
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 8 - 10 corn, flour, or whole wheat tortillas
  • Optional toppings: salsa, pico de gallo, avocado, guacamole, sour cream, cheese

Fajita Seasoning:

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine all the fajita seasoning ingredients and set them to the side.
  • Place your chicken breasts on a paper towel and pat dry. Then use your fingers to evenly spread 1/2 of the seasoning on both sides of the chicken breasts. Save the rest for later!
  • Heat a large saute pan with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to medium. Place the chicken breasts in and sear for 7 - 8 minutes on each side. Once done, remove the chicken from the pan and let them rest for 5 minutes on a plate. This will ensure they are super juicy.
  • In the same pan, add the onion and bell peppers over medium heat. Add in the leftover seasoning and saute for 4 - 5 minutes until softer. Stir frequently so they do not burn.
  • After the chicken has rested, carefully slice them into thin strips.
  • Add the chicken back into the pan with the onions and bell peppers. Add in the lime juice, chopped cilantro, and stir.
  • Serve immediately with flour or corn tortillas, salsa, pico de gallo, sour cream, cheese, and guacamole.

Notes

Yellow Onion: Can use sweet onion, white onion, or red onion.
Spices: Can substitute all spices with 1 - 2 Tablespoons of taco or fajita seasoning.
