Ingredients

  • 1 Pound chicken cutlets, sliced lengthwise
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/2 Teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cumin
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 bell pepper, sliced
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • Salsa, for topping
  • Cheddar cheese, shredded, for topping

Directions

In a bowl, season the chicken with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and spices; set aside.

Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, onions and pepper to a skillet on medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until onions and peppers are softened, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Add chicken to the same skillet and cook for about 4 minutes on each side. Return the onion and peppers to the skillet and stir for about 2 more minutes.

As the peppers and onions are warming back up in the skillet, warm the tortillas in the microwave for 15 seconds.

To assemble: Place two warm tortillas on a plate and top with chicken, onion, and pepper mixture. You can add salsa and Cheddar cheese to top.


A little bit of back story. The word "fajita" means "little belt" from "faja" for strip or belt, and the diminutive "ita." It describes a skirt steak, and fajitas were traditionally made with grilled skirt steak, though now they can be made with chicken, shrimp, you name it.
