Ingredients
Chicken Seasoning
  • 1.5Lbs Chicken Breasts (Skinless and Boneless)
  • 1Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2Tbsp Paprika
  • 1/2tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/8tsp Caynenne Pepper (Optional)
  • 1/2tsp Salt
Chicken Fajitas
  • 3Large Bell Peppers(Cut into 1/4″ Strips)
  • 1Large Yellow Onion(Cut into 1/4″ Strips)
  • 2Tbsp Vegetable Oil(Divided)
  • 1tsp Chili Powder
  • 1Medium Lime
  • 1/4tsp Salt
Instructions
  1. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of parchment or wax paper. Use a meat mallet to pound the breasts to an even 1/2″ thickness.
  2. In a large bowl, add the chili powder, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt and stir to combine. Add the chicken breasts and toss to coat evenly. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add the peppers and onions and toss with 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil. Add the chili powder and salt and toss again until evenly coated.
  4. Add 1/2 Tbsp. of vegetable oil to a 12″ cast iron skillet and pre-heat over high heat. When hot, add the onions and peppers and sauté until softened and slightly charred (approx. 4-5 min). Transfer the onions and peppers to a large plate and set aside.
  5. Lower the heat to medium-high and add 1/2 Tbsp. of vegetable oil to the skillet. Sear the chicken for about 8 minutes on each side, until cooked thoroughly(depends on the thickness of your breasts). Chicken should no longer be pink inside and will have a nice char on the outside.
  6. Remove the chicken to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. While resting, place the peppers and onions back into the pan to re-heat for about 1 minute.
  7. Slice the chicken into strips and serve alongside the peppers and onions. Add your desired toppings and enjoy immediately.
