Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 6


  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 6 pieces flour or wheat tortillas
  • 4 tbsp canola oil divided
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes optional
  • 1 small or medium sweet red pepper julienned
  • 1 small or medium green pepper julienned
  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup onions chopped


  • Marinate the chicken with lemon, canola oil, and seasonings. Refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours.
  • In a large cast iron pan or non-stick skillet, sauté the onions and peppers until crisp and tender. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, remove the chicken from the marinade and cook for 5 to 6 minutes over medium-high heat.
  • When the chicken is no longer pink, add the peppers and heat through.
  • Spoon filling on warmed tortillas and add desired toppings and condiments.


Additional toppings:
Shredded cheddar cheese, taco sauce, salsa, guacamole, sliced red onions and sour cream
Instead of cooking the chicken and veggies in a skillet, you can also roast them in the oven. Just season and drizzle with olive oil.
