  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish


  1. Start by seasoning the chicken breasts with chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned chicken breasts and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add a bit more olive oil if needed. Sauté the sliced bell peppers and onions until they’re tender and slightly caramelized.
  4. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for another 30 seconds until fragrant.
  5. Slice the cooked chicken breasts into strips and return them to the skillet, mixing them with the sautéed peppers and onions.
  6. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve the flavorful chicken fajita mixture hot.
