A note about serious food allergies

Not a lot of foods have a signature sound, but if you've ever ordered fajitas at a restaurant, you know the sound we're talking about. It's the wild jungle-cat sizzling sound the platter makes when it arrives from the kitchen. Sure, it's pure restaurant theatrics, but dang it all if it doesn't get us every time. Capture some of that magic in your own kitchen with these fajitas, made with gently spiced chicken breast served on a bed of fresh bell peppers and onion. Pass the warm tortillas around and bask in the ovation for pulling off such a tasty culinary feat.

  1. 1

    Marinate the Chicken

    Pat chicken breasts dry. Slice across width into 1/4" strips.

    In a mixing bowl, combine chicken, half the taco seasoning (reserve remaining for vegetables), 1 tsp. olive oil, and 1/4 tsp. pepper until chicken is coated completely.

    Set aside at least 10 minutes.

    While chicken marinates, prepare ingredients.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    On a separate cutting board, mince cilantro (no need to stem).

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and slice red and yellow bell peppers into 1/4" strips.

    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add marinated chicken to hot pan and cook undisturbed until lightly charred, 3-4 minutes.

    Then stir occasionally until browned all over and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 2-3 minutes.

    Transfer chicken to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  4. 4

    Cook the Vegetables

    Add 2 tsp. olive oil, bell peppers, and onion to hot pan and cook undisturbed until lightly charred, 2-3 minutes.
