Cilantro Lime Chicken Fajitas

Continuing with my chicken challenge and using my super awesome new pumpkin shaped Dutch oven, I hunted around on Pinterest and found this recipe to be absolutely perfect. I have bell peppers and corn tortillas that are on the edge of going bad, so it’s the perfect time to make this meal -and with the cilantro? Yum! Note that the original pin didn’t link to a recipe, so I estimated here and there. INGREDIENTS

  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 bell peppers (I chose red and green for color)
  • 2 chicken breast
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • corn or flour tortillas


STEP 0: Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit

STEP 1: Slice onion and bell peppers into strips. Place in bottom of Dutch oven.

My fiancé and I were both impressed with this! The flavors blended amazingly well and gave a fresh, slightly spicy, and sweet taste. Both my fiancé and I gave it a double thumbs up and he would love for me to make it again. His only suggestion is more cilantro (mostly cause he LOVES cilantro) haha. Overall, this was fantastic. A dab of sour cream on top adds the final touch.
