(once again, click the link for the original recipe.. below is what I did)
- 1.5 lbs chicken breast, cut in thin strips
- about 1.5 bell peppers
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 tbsp oregano and 1 tbsp coriander (the original recipe also recommends chili power and cumin but I didn't have any so I sprinkled in some red pepper flakes as well)
- chopped garlic
- juice of 2 lemons
- 1 tbsp cooking fat (I used my favorite coconut oil)
- lettuce to serve
- your choice of toppings (I used a Paleo-friendly salsa)
- Combine the chicken, peppers, onions, spices, garlic and lemon juice in a bowl and mix well.
- Heat a large skillet on medium heat and cook the whole preparation with the cooking fat until the chicken is cooked through and the onion and bell pepper are soft.
- Prepare your fajita in a lettuce wrap with your favorite toppings.

A very quick, filling, and easy dish! It was loaded with flavor, but there was one flavor in there I wasn't enjoying. It took me a while to figure out that coriander is actually the same thing as cilantro.. and of course I'm one of those people who thinks cilantro tastes like soap. I even found a nice community of friends with the same problem (http://ihatecilantro.com/). I would definitely make this recipe again sans cilantro, and maybe I'll even spring for some cumin and chili powder. Two more recipes to come as soon as I get motivated enough to post!
