I didn’t plan on posting this as I have been on a little bit of a hiatus from the blog, so please excuse the lack of prepping photos!
I have had quite the torrential downpour of issues happening in life and it has all just been too much to keep up with.
But enough about that, because I felt like I really needed to share this super easy DELISH recipe with you all. It is inspired by the contents and flavours of chicken fajitas and burritos. Yum! I’m in a Mexican food stage again haha
For Sauteed Peppers:
2 red bell peppers, cut into strips
2 jalapeno peppers, most seeds removed, cut into strips
1 sweet onion, cut into strips
6-8 boneless skinless chicken breasts. Trimmed and cut into strips.
1-2 tbsp avocado or olive oil
Juice and zest of 1 lime
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder (or fresh garlic if you prefer, about 2 cloves)
salt, to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp)
Avocado 1-2 (mashed, with lime juice)
Organic black beans
You can also add anything else you would like to see on your plate, but I was working with what I had on hand!
- Combine all chicken marinade ingredients in a large bowl, mix well. Add prepped chicken strips and coat well. Set aside in the fridge to marinate for about 30 minutes.
2. Now would be the time to put the rice on to cook, depending on the rice you use. But, it usually takes about 40 minutes to cook fully.
3. Prep your bell peppers, onion, and jalapeño peppers. I prefer to use a wok to do this, as it cooks things quickly, and you don’t require oil.
4. Sauté onion in a little bit of oil until softened. (No oil if you use a wok) Add bell peppers and jalapeño strips. Sauté until slightly softened. Set aside in a bowl.
5. Prep your other toppings: black beans (from a can!) rinsed and drained and mash your avocado with a bit of lime juice. Set aside.
6. Sautee chicken strips until cooked through.
7. Ready to serve. Add a little bit of everything to your plate as you so desire and enjoy!! I usually throw the bell pepper mix back in the wok for a quick minute to reheat before serving.
