recipe

Bell pepper (assorted)

Step 1

Wash the peppers & remove the seeds. Slice the peppers into long strips.

Yellow onion

Step 2

Peel & slice the onion.

Fajita seasoning
Olive oil

Step 3

Heat a drizzle of oil in a pan over medium-high heat. (If you have a cast iron skillet this will help to nicely char the veggies). Add the peppers, onions & half of the fajita seasoning to the pan. Stir frequently, cooking for about 8-10 min.

Chicken breast

Step 4

As the veggies cook, prepare the chicken. Tenderize the chicken breast using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Season all over with the remaining fajita seasoning. Evenly coat the chicken in 1/2 a tbsp of olive oil.

Step 5

Once the veggies are charred & softened, transfer to a plate. In the same pan, add the chicken & sear, undisturbed for 5-6 min on the first side. Flip & continue searing until fully cooked, about 5 more min. The chicken should have a golden crust & internal temp of 165°F. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for a few min. Then slice the chicken.

Black beans (canned)

Step 6

Drain & rinse the black beans. Heat briefly on the stove or microwave, if desired.

Sour cream
Salsa
Flour tortilla (medium)

Step 7

Serve the sliced fajita chicken & vegetables on a plate. Add warmed flour tortillas, black beans, salsa & sour cream for dipping! Build your fajitas & enjoy!
