NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves, plus a few whole leaves for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup julienned green bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons diced red onion
  • 1 medium plum tomato, cored and diced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 4 ounces shredded Colby-Jack cheese
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Whisk together the oil, chopped cilantro, chili powder, cumin, salt, garlic, pepper, and cayenne in a bowl; add the chicken and toss to coat.

  • Transfer chicken to a foil-lined baking sheet and arrange the green pepper, onion, and tomato over each. Roast until the largest piece is just cooked through, and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 165 degrees F, about 20 minutes.

  • Remove the chicken from oven and immediately top with the cheese and serve as the cheese melts. Transfer the chicken to a platter or among plates and garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.
