Chicken Fajitas

  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • 1 chicken breast cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Fajita Bowl

  • 1 1/2 cups Cooked rice or Lettuce or Chips
  • 1 cup Homemade Salsa
  • 1/2 cup Guacamole
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1 jalapeno sliced
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes


  1. Season the chicken liberally with the spices. Preheat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Use a stove top grill pan if you have one. Otherwise, any skillet works.
  2. Sear the chicken breasts for 3-4 minutes per side until it cooks through.
  3. Remove the chicken from the skillet and cover before slicing.
  4. Slice the chicken into half an inch strips.
  5. Assemble the fajita bowl. Add the base to your bowls, choose either rice or salad or chips or tortillas or a combo.
  6. Drizzle some salsa over the base layer, and start assemble the bowls. Add chicken, guacamole, fresh ingredients and finish off with a squirt or lemon and extra salsa!
  7. Serve right away and enjoy!!

Recipe Notes


  1. Start with boneless skinless chicken breasts that are sliced in half lengthwise so they cook in 7-8 minutes.
  2. Liberally season the chicken because they don’t have time to marinate, they will get cooked right away.
  3. Sear the chicken for 3-4 minutes per side, and flip only after that sear. Le the chicken rest before slicing it.
  4. Layer the base of the fajita bowl with your favorite ingredient or combo.
    favorite base options are: herbed or plain rice, lettuce, tortilla chips or soft tortilla, or a combo.
  5. Always flavor that base ingredient with salsa (I recommend this Homemade Salsa) before adding on the remaining ingredients.
  6. Layer the chicken, a dollop of guacamole, extra salsa, fresh veggies like onions, tomatoes, scallions, jalapenos, cilantro and a squirt of lemon juice!
  7. If you want to make the chicken bowls in a snap: Have the Homemade Salsa in your fridge and the Guacamole. Also use leftover rice, just add fresh cilantro to it.
  8. To make this a low carb meal, add plenty of lettuce for the base and skip the rice and chips.
