Chicken Fajita Skillet recipe

Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1/2 medium green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 medium yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 1/4 cups jasmine rice
  • 1 (10 ounce) can Ro*Tel® Serrano Diced Tomatoes with Serrano Peppers, undrained
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • Chopped cilantro, lime wedges and sour cream (optional)


  1. Stir together salt, chili powder, pepper, oregano, garlic powder and cumin in small bowl. Season chicken on both sides with about half of the spice mixture.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Pour in 1 tablespoon oil, peppers and onion. Cook until vegetables are lightly browned, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and chicken to skillet. Cook until chicken is browned, about 3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.
  4. Add rice, undrained tomatoes, chicken stock and any remaining spice mixture to skillet and stir to combine. Place chicken on top of rice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 minutes, until rice is tender, and chicken is cooked through (180 degrees F).
  5. Pour peppers and onions back into skillet and continue heating until hot, about 3 minutes. Serve with chopped cilantro, lime wedges and sour cream, if desired.
