Description

These easy chicken fajita bowls are a cinch to make. Chicken thighs with peppers, onions, and fajita seasoning piled over rice with all the toppings.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced (I used red and yellow)
  • 1 lb. chicken breast, cut into strips
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 2 cups cooked rice (I use long grain, brown)
  • 4 cups chopped lettuce (I like romaine)

Optional toppings:

  • salsa
  • sour cream
  • limes
  • crushed tortilla chips
  • avocado
  • cilantro
  • guac…whatever you want!

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the onions and peppers and saute until they soften, about 4-5 minutes. 
  2. Then, add the chicken and cook for about 8 minutes, until it’s totally cooked through. 
  3. Add the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook for 2 additional minutes, stirring frequently, to coat the chicken and veggies. Remove the skillet from the heat, and squeeze on the lime juice. 
  4. To build the burrito bowls, add about 1/2 cup of rice and 1 cup of lettuce to a bowl for each person*. Add in some of the fajita mixture and then top with desired toppings. Serve!

Notes

  • To prep this ahead of time, avoid adding the lettuce until you’re ready to eat so it doesn’t get soggy. When you’re ready to eat, add the lettuce and toppings!
