For serving


  • Cut the chicken breasts into long strips; set aside. Slice the onion into long strips. Slice the peppers into long ¼ inch strips. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Serve over tortillas and top with salsa, sour cream and any of your favorite toppings.
