Hey, Y’all

Welcome to my blog! I hope it inspires you to explore the joys and wonders of cooking clean and nourishing meals.

Whole30 Chicken Fajitas

Whole30 Chicken Fajitas

If there’s one thing us Texans can all agree on, it’s our love for all things Tex-Mex—so you have my word when I tell you these Whole30 Chicken Fajitas are next level good. Not only are these a cleaner alternative to their yummy, buttery, grease-filled counterparts but they also take all of 30 minutes to whip up—making them a perfect fit for weeknight dinners.

Whole30 Chicken Fajitas

Ingredients: 

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced into 1/4 inch strips 

  • 4 bell peppers, color of choice, sliced into 1/4 inch strips

  • 1 yellow onion, vertically sliced 

  • 1 large jalapeño, sliced in rounds, optional to remove seeds 

  • Siete Tortillas (omit if Whole30)

  • Guacamole, to top it all off 

  • Cilantro, for garnish 

For the chicken marinade: 

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 tsp ground cumin 

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder 

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder 

  • 1/2 salt 

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper 

  • Juice of 2 limes 

  • Zest of 1/2 a lime 

  • 2 tablespoons habanero sauce 

  • 3 tablespoons ghee, melted 

Directions: 

1. In a large bowl or ziplock bag, combine all of the marinade ingredients with the chicken, and toss until evenly coated. Allow the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes. (Marinading overnight makes these babies EVEN better) 

2. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking. 

3. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons avocado oil. Add the peppers, onions, and jalapeños to the skillet and sauté for 7-9 minutes, or until the veggies are tender and beginning to brown. Transfer to a plate. 

4. In the same skillet, heat an additional 2 tablespoons of avocado oil over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken for about 4-6 minutes or until it’s no longer pink, turning the strips over half-way. Transfer the peppers, onions, and jalapeños back to the skillet and toss to combine. Turn off heat. 

5. Heat tortillas on a griddle and top them off with the fajita mix, guacamole, and cilantro. 

Enjoy!!
