Ingredients

  • 4 chicken fillets
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 1/4 tsp of cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • A pinch of garlic powder
  • A pinch of paprika
  • A splash of lemon/ljme juice
  • Sour cream/Greek yoghurt
  • A bunch of cilantro
  • A splash of sunflower oil
  • 2 avocados chopped

Instructions

  • Add 4 chicken fillets to a bowl and season them with salt and pepper to taste, cumin, paprika, garlic powder and lemon juice. In a frying pan, heat up some sunflower oil and cook fillets on each side for 7-9 minutes or until fully cooked. Set aside.
  • Then, make the mixed pepper portion of the recipe. You’ll want to chop 1 red bell pepper, 1 yellow bell pepper, 1 orange bell pepper, and 1 onion.
  • Then, heat up some olive oil in a second frying pan. Add the onions and peppers, then season with salt and pepper to taste. We also recommend adding paprika to taste. Fry until the vegetables are soft and slightly roasted.
  • Cut up your chicken fillets into bite-sized pieces. Add them to the peppers and mix. Then, add 1-2 chopped avocados, 1 Tbsp of Greek yoghurt or sour cream, and some cilantro on top.
  • Serve with warm tortillas and enjoy!
