Ingredients and Substitutions

I personally love using organic free range chicken breast that I pick up from my local Trader Joe’s. I always look for organic and no antibiotics added. You can also use chicken tenders.

Bell peppers give these fajitas the perfect crunch. I love to orange, green and yellow, but you can use any colors that you prefer.

Red onion is used in this recipe, you can substitute any type of onion such as yellow or white.

Mild taco seasoning from Siete is my absolute favorite. I pick it up from my local Sprouts. You can use any type of taco seasoning, or create your own.

For the toppings I love to use feta cheese, pico de gallo and fresh cilantro.

Wrap these chicken and peppers in a warmed corn or flour tortilla.

Tips and Tricks

  • Use a sharp knife for best results, I love using my Ninja Foodi Knife set.
  • Internal temperature of chicken needs to read 165F.
  • Add bell peppers, onions and chicken stripes to a large bowl for easy mixing.
  • I like to use tongs to help combine the taco seasoning to the veggies.
  • Use foil or parchment paper for easy clean-up.
  • Warm tortillas by wrapping them in a clean dish towel or paper towel and microwave for 20-30 seconds, or heat on the stovetop.

Make your own taco seasoning

If you don’t have access to store bought taco seasoning, you can easily make your own at home with a combination of these simple ingredients:

  • chili powder
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • dried oregano
  • paprika
  • ground cumin
  • sea salt
two corn tortillas that are filled with the baked chicken and veggies and topped with feta cheese and pico de gallo.
