What You Need
  • 2-3 chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 1 white onion
  • 1/2 tablespoon of lime
  • variety of bell peppers
  • fresh cilantro
  • optional: mushrooms
  • olive oil
  • optional: soft shells
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. First prep your food. For me, this is always the longest part. Slice all your peppers into strips and cut up smaller pieces of onions. Make sure you have a variety of pepper colors, which provide not only a beautiful fajita but a great flavor.
  2. Now let's make the seasonings! Add your paprika, onion powder, pepper, salt, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir. Now add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1/2 tablespoon of lime juice into mixture and stir.
  3. Pour your seasonings into a zip baggie and add your strips of chicken. Make sure all your strips are covered and let marinate.
  4. Add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in a cast iron pan and let warm to medium. Place your marinated chicken into the pan and let cook. Make sure you rotate your chicken and cook all the way through. Once done, pull from pan and place on plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  5. Now add another 1 tablespoon of olive oil to pan. Add in your sliced peppers and onions for approximation 3 minutes. Now put your chicken back into pan and stir to combine both chicken and veggies. Pull from heat.
  6. You can keep this carb free by serving in a bowl or feel free to add to a soft shell if you prefer. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro for color and taste.
