Had a whole bunch of peppers that needed to be cooked, and if I saw one more Taco Bell commercial…
Thank you spendpennies for a quick and easy win-win for us. 👩🏻🍳
3 chicken breasts
1 medium onion
3 bell peppers red, yellow, green or orange
3 tablespoons olive oil divided
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
salt to taste
Cut onion into slivers & slice peppers.
In a separate bowl, combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, juice of 1/2 lime, chili powder, paprika, onion powder, pepper, cumin and salt. Cut chicken into strips and toss with the spice mixture.
Preheat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium high. Add 1/2 of the chicken and cook until just cooked, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. Repeat with remaining chicken.
Set chicken aside and add 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Drain onions well and cook 2 minutes. Add in sliced peppers and cook an additional 2 minutes or just until hot. Add chicken back to the pan and stir to combine.
Squeeze additional lime overtop and serve over tortillas. (I like sour cream and cheddar cheese with ours!)
