  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Flour tortillas, for serving
  • Toppings: sour cream, salsa, guacamole, shredded cheese, and lime wedges


  1. In a large bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, paprika, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
  2. Slice the chicken breasts into thin strips and toss them in the spice mixture until well coated. Let it marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated chicken and cook until it’s no longer pink in the center, about 5-6 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add more olive oil if needed, then add the sliced bell peppers and onions. Sauté until they become tender and slightly caramelized, about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Return the cooked chicken to the skillet and toss everything together. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat through.
  6. Warm the flour tortillas in the skillet or microwave.
  7. Serve the Homemade Chicken Fajitas with warm tortillas and your choice of toppings, such as sour cream, salsa, guacamole, shredded cheese, and lime wedges.
