paleo oven baked chicken fajitas

So, I have a confession to make. I am one of those people who buy groceries then throws them away two weeks later. (Trust me, I feel incredibly guilty every time this happens.)

Because this happens more often than I'd like to admit, I decided (and am determined) to figure out how to be as lazy as possible and still eat delicious, healthy food. #lifegoals

Enter this chicken fajita recipe.

Three reasons why this recipe will save your life: it's easy to make, takes under an hour to make, and can feed a single girl for a week. That's what I'm talking about, friends.

You can eat the chicken by itself, toss it over your salad with salsa, top your morning eggs with it, or be traditional and eat it in a tortilla.

PALEO OVEN-BAKED CHICKEN FAJITAS
(Makes ~5 servings)

Seasoning Ingredients
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Fajitas Ingredients
1 bag of frozen bell pepper & onion strips
OR 1 medium onion, 2 medium green bell peppers, & 1 medium red bell pepper
1 lb chicken breast
2 tbsp avocado oil
1 medium lime
1/4 bunch of cilantro

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all seasoning ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. If you decided to go with fresh ingredients (I'm lazy, so obviously I decided to use frozen), slice the onion and bell peppers into strips. Place in a large 9x13 in casserole dish. If you went the frozen route, I just emptied the bag into the dish to cook with the chicken.

Slice chicken into thin slices and add to the same dish. Sprinkle seasoning over meat and veggies. Drizzle avocado oil over everything and toss. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes. When finished, squeeze half a lime over the dish and top with cilantro.

That's it! Super easy and super delicious.
