Ingredients

  • 2 pounds (907 g) boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) salt
  • 2 teaspoons (6 g) taco seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons (28 ml) cooking oil
  • 1 red onion , thinly sliced
  • 3 bell peppers (green, red and orange)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 fresh avocados , peeled, seeded and sliced
  • 1 lime , cut in wedges, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Place chicken thighs in a large bowl and season with salt and taco seasoning, making sure all sides of the chicken are covered with seasoning. Let rest for about 30 minutes or more , if possible. 

  2. Heat a large 12 inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, when the pan is hot, add in a tablespoon of oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Using a tong, add in the chicken and sear both sides until golden , lightly charred and cooked through - about 8 to 10 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of your fillet. Transfer chicken to a plate and let rest. 

  3. Add the onions and peppers to the skillet, drizzle with the remaining oil, and cook until the onion is soft and the peppers are slightly softened and charred, for about 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Slice chicken into strips.

  5. Serve with sliced avocado, lime, tortillas, chopped cilantro, and any other condiments.
