I can eat them quite a lot on certain workdays, I mean not only are they packed with lots of flavors, but with just a few simple ingredients you can easily make a healthy filling dinner! Being fajitas which is literally one of our favorite foods, I think it would be fun to do a little spinning on traditional fajita dishes and just roll the chicken around vegetables to make one perfect small serving.

For Chickens

  • ½ green paprika, sliced
  • 3 chicken breasts or 6 thin slices of chicken ¼ inch inches
  • ½ red bell pepper, sliced
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, sliced

For Marinade

  • A little cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon. chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon. salt
  • 2 tablespoons of coriander, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Half lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped

  1. In a small bowl, shake with olive oil, lime juice, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, chili (if using) and cilantro. Put aside.
  2. For chicken breast, if you buy pre-sliced chicken meat slices then proceed to the next step. If using chicken breast, cut it into 2 slices evenly and hit the chicken firmly using the soft side of the meat tenderizer to an average thickness of ¼ inches.
  3. Place the chicken pieces in a large, resealable freezer bag and pour the marinade on top, making sure everything is fully coated. Let the chicken marinate for at least one hour to last night.
  4. After the chicken is marinated, place 6 slices of paprika in the center of the chicken pieces, roll and tighten with a toothpick. Repeat this step until all the meat slices have been rolled and place the seams under the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Brush the top of the chicken with the remaining marinade and bake, open, at 375 for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the juice is clear.
