Ingredients
  • 1 lb chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 1 large onion (or 2 smaller ones)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp fajita seasoning
  • 1 jalapeno optional
  • 8 medium tortillas
  • salsa
  • sour cream
Instructions
  1. Cut the chicken breasts into long strips; set aside. Slice the onion into long strips. Slice the peppers into long 1/4 inch strips. 

  2. Heat the olive in a large skillet. Add the chicken to the skillet then sprinkle about half of the fajita seasoning over the chicken and toss. Cook the chicken for 5 to 10 minutes until it's fully cooked and no longer pink, and it's slightly charred, but not burned. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.

  3. Add another tbsp of olive oil to the skillet, if needed. I used a non stick skillet, so it wasn't necessary to add anymore oil. Add the onion and cook for a couple minutes until it's slightly translucent. Add the peppers and the remaining fajita seasoning and toss. Cook for another 3 to 5 more minutes so the peppers cook slightly, you don't want them over cooked, they should be a bit crunchy. Add the chicken back to the skillet and toss with the peppers.

  4. Serve over tortillas and top with salsa, sour cream and any of your favorite toppings.
