  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 cups sliced red or yellow onion (about 1 large)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 8 corn tortillas, warmed
  • Lime wedges, cilantro, sour cream, avocado and/or pico de gallo for serving

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Cut chicken breasts in half horizontally, then slice crosswise into strips. Combine oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the chicken and stir to coat with the spice mixture. Add bell peppers and onion and stir to combine. Transfer the chicken and vegetables to the prepared baking sheet and spread in an even layer.
  3. Roast on the middle rack for 15 minutes. Leave the pan there and turn the broiler to high. Broil until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are browning in spots, about 5 minutes more. Remove from oven. Stir in lime juice.
  4. Serve the chicken and vegetables in warmed tortillas accompanied by lime wedges and topped with cilantro, sour cream, avocado and/or pico de gallo, if desired.

Super good and easy. I make double and triple batches and freeze in freezer Ziploc bags when we have an overwhelming amount of bell peppers from the garden. Great way to freeze fresh produce into a quick and easy clean-up dinner. I generally double the veggies.

This is my go to recipe! Love this! I add red bell pepper along with the green and also double the recipe. It's a great alternative for grilled chicken fajitas when you don't have the time to get the grill going.

I prepared this in a cast iron skillet rather than the oven.

I made this for dinner last night. It was quick and easy. I prepped ahead of time and just poured from bag onto cookie sheet when guests arrived. 20 minutes later dinner was on the table. The flavors were great! Everyone loved it.
