Savory Chicken Tacos (Spicy!)

      Eating these chicken Tacos, aka Fajitas without the peppers, exposes your palate to unbelievable amounts of explosive flavors.

      The aroma, while cooking, will be so tempting you'll have to restrain yourself to not pick the chicken straight out of the pan and eat it. 

      I encourage you to perform self discipline and place the chicken in a warm homemade tortilla topped with any extra toppings that suit your taste buds, sit down at a table and then take a savory bite and enjoy a moment of foodie euphoria.

Did I mention it's super easy to to make. Oh yes. It is. 

  • 2 chicken breasts, fat cut off
  •  1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 generous tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 " " tsp cumin
  • 1/2 " " tsp oregano
  • 1/2 " " tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp minced onion flakes
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil, divided

Slice chicken breast into 2 1/2-3 inch pieces.

Add all the spices and 1 of the tbs of olive oil to a freezer ziplock bag.

Add chicken pieces and shake/mix till well combined. Let sit.


Heat the other 1tbs of olive oil in a medium skillet on medium-high heat. Add seasoned chicken.

Cook till chicken is no longer pink. 5-7ish min.

Enjoy in a warm tortilla topped with other delectable ingredients of your choice. 

*You can easily make them fajitas by adding in 1 cup sliced bell peppers of your choice. 
*You can easily double the batch to allow others to experience the magic of this recipe.
