Serving Size: 2
Paleo Fajitas For Two
1 lb Chicken breasts
2 tbsp Fajita mix (Make Your Own!)
2 tbsp of your favorite Paleo cooking oil
2 large Bell peppers (sliced into thin strips)

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add the chicken breasts to the pan and sauté for 5-7 minutes per side, until golden brown and fully cooked (165 degrees F (74 degrees C)).
Remove the chicken from the pan and place it on a plate, covering it with foil to keep it warm. Next, add sliced bell peppers and onions to the pan and sauté for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
When the vegetables are almost done, slice the chicken breasts against the grain. Once the vegetables are cooked, add the chicken back to the pan and squeeze fresh lime juice over the top for an added burst of flavor.
For a paleo-friendly twist, serve the chicken and vegetables on a bed of cauliflower rice or wrapped in lettuce leaves instead of traditional tortillas. Another option is to use almond flour or coconut flour tortillas, which can be found at many health food stores. Enjoy this delicious and healthy paleo-friendly chicken fajita recipe, perfect for your next meal!
