Chicken Fajita Bowls | LeMoine Family Kitchen


2 lbs chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
4 bell peppers, cut into strips
1 red onion, sliced
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp dried oregano
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp chili powder
2 cans refried beans
1 small can diced green chilis
1 lb dry brown rice
limes, cut into wedges
vegetable oil


In a ziplock bag mix together the salt, oregano, garlic powder, cumin, onions powder and chili powder. Add in the cut chicken and mix around to coat evenly. Refrigerate overnight or at least a few hours.
Heat up a large sauté pan, over medium high heat, add about a Tbsp of oil and the chicken, Stir occasionally to cook through. Remove from the pan and place aside.
Add another Tbsp of oil to the pan and add the peppers and onions. Cook until a tender crisp, or further if you prefer them a little more cooked. Stir occasionally to pick up all the flavors left by the chicken.
For the beans, in a pan over medium low heat, mix together the beans and green chilis. Warm through, shut the heat and stir in a small handful of chopped cilantro.
Cook the rice according to the packing. Season with salt and pepper. At the very end stir in some chopped cilantro.
Assembly time! Start with a big ole scoop of the rice, top with some of the delicious beans and then the chicken, peppers and onions. Garnish with some more cilantro {yes, I really love cilantro} and a couple lime wedges.


I love me some fresh and flavorful Mexican! You all know that anytime you go out for Mexican, when you hear that sizzling pan go by you take a big ole whiff and a peek. Chicken fajitas is definitely one of the dishes I frequently order out because of the wonderful flavors without so much of the smothering of heavy sauce and cheese. While I don’t have one of those fancy pants skillet pans that restaurants serve fajitas on, I still make a killer dish! These Chicken Fajita Bowls have all the elements in one lovely package! Sautéed chicken, peppers and onions, some simple refried beans, brown rice and then to finish it off fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime. Perfection.
