  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 45 mins
  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 1 lb chicken, chopped into bite sized pieces (0.5 kg)
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 green bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • juice of 1 medium lime
  • ½ cup fresh minced cilantro (40 g)
  • 5 cloves crushed garlic
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil (60 ml)
  • ½ tsp dried oregano (0.5 g)
  • ½ tsp salt (3 g)
  • 1 tsp cumin powder (0.5 g)
  • 1 tsp chili powder (0.5 g)
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional) (1.2 g)
  • 6 cups cooked white or brown rice


  1. Combine all ingredients except rice in a large glass baking dish. Toss to mix thoroughly.
  2. Cover dish with foil or an inverted cookie sheet and bake at 475 deg F (245 C) for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the foil or cookie sheet and switch the oven to broil for 10 min.
  4. Remove from oven and serve over a bed of fresh white or brown rice.
  5. See notes for suggested add-ons, and enjoy!


This recipe has a medium to medium-high spiciness level - it's definitely got some “kick” to it. For a milder flavor, we recommend generously reducing or omitting the red pepper flakes. For a very mild flavor, also reduce the chili powder to just a pinch.

Our favorite add-ons upon serving: sliced avocado, cheddar cheese, and/or fresh cilantro!

This dish is also delicious wrapped in corn tortillas as a more traditional fajita.
