  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup cooked rice (brown or white)
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels (fresh, canned, or frozen)
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish
  • Lime wedges for serving
  • Your choice of toppings: avocado slices, sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa, jalapenos


  1. Prepare the Chicken: In a large bowl, combine the sliced chicken, half of the olive oil, smoked paprika, ground cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat the chicken evenly and let marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Cook the Chicken: Heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated chicken and cook until golden brown and no longer pink in the middle, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Sauté the Vegetables: In the same skillet, add the bell peppers and onion, cooking until they’re soft and have a bit of char, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds, until fragrant.
  4. Combine Ingredients: Return the chicken to the skillet with the vegetables. Add the black beans and corn, and heat through.
  5. Assemble the Bowls: Spoon the rice into bowls. Top with the chicken fajita mixture. Garnish with fresh cilantro, lime wedges, and an array of toppings like avocado slices, sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa, and jalapenos according to your preference.

There you have it—a colorful and tasty Chicken Fajita Bowl that is sure to satisfy your craving for a delicious and balanced meal. It’s filling, full of protein, and packed with fresh veggies, making it a guilt-free option that doesn’t skimp on flavor.

Enjoy your homemade fajita bowl with a side of tortilla chips for added crunch, and don’t forget to squeeze that lime wedge for an extra zing. Buen provecho!
