Ingredients

2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

2 onions, sliced

2 bell peppers, sliced

1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 2-inch-long strips

2 teaspoons fajita seasoning mix or 1 tablespoon, for extra spice

Kosher salt

1 lime, juiced

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Warmed flour tortillas, for serving

Optional Accompaniments:

Sour cream, guacamole, salsa, shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes and/or shredded lettuce

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and bell peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer the onions and bell peppers to a plate and set aside.
  2. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, the chicken, 1/2 of the fajita seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.
  3. Return the onions and bell peppers to the skillet. Add the remaining 1/2 of the fajita seasoning and another 1/2 teaspoon of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes. Add the lime juice and cilantro to the skillet and stir to combine.
  4. Serve with the tortillas and desired accompaniments.
