Equipment

  • Large skillet (I love using cast iron for this!)
  • Small mixing bowl

Ingredients

Seasoning Mix

  • 1/2 Tbsp Chili powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ground cumin
  • 1 Tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 Tsp Oregano
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Pepper

Chicken Fajitas

  • 3 Chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1 Onion thinly sliced
  • 3 Bell peppers thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp Bacon Up® Bacon Grease
  • 1/2 Lime

Instructions

  • You may use your favorite pre-mixed packet of fajita seasoning OR make your own by combining in a small mixing bowl the Seasoning Mix ingredients listed. Stir together to mix well.
  • Generously sprinkle the fajita seasoning on both sides of the chicken and use your fingers to press it into the chicken.
  • Heat the Bacon Up in a large skillet over medium heat. Sear the chicken breasts for about 7-8 minutes on each side.
  • While your chicken is cooking, cut the bell peppers and onion into thin slices.
  • Once the chicken has finished cooking, remove it to a plate and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Add the bell peppers and onion to the same skillet over medium heat and sauté for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • When the bell peppers are just about done sautéing, slice the chicken breasts into strips.
  • Add the chicken back into the skillet, add a squeeze of fresh lime juice, and stir everything together.
  • Serve with you favorite tortillas. I love to warm the tortillas first in the skillet with a scoop of Bacon Up® Bacon Grease!
