What’s for Dinner: [Baked] Chicken Fajita

Last night, for dinner/iftari, I made chicken fajitas.  I baked it, instead of grilling it or cooking on the stove. It was juicy enough that no other sauce was needed and neither was any condiment necessary… but that’s your personal preference.

How I made it last night:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

I cut my boneless chicken into thin strips before marinating it with: black pepper, paprika, chili powder, cay20140702-192922-70162846.jpgenne pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, ginger powder and cumin. Next, I added in some cornstarch. No added salt and definitely no oil.

Then, I cut my onion and [red and orange] bell peppers into thin strips. Toss it really well with the marinated chicken so it gets seasoned too.

Bake in your preheated oven for about 35 minutes. I tossed it, I think, twice in between the baking time to make sure it was cooking evenly.

As soon as it came out of the oven, I squeezed half a lime over it, leaving the other half of the lime to be squeezed on top after you assemble your fajitas on top of your [warmed] tortilla(s).
