Ingredients:

1½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast

1½ cups sliced bell peppers

1 red onion, sliced

3 tsp coconut oil

2 tsp cumin

2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Salt to taste (optional)

Preparation:

1. Heat 1½ tsp coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. When oil is hot, place chicken breasts in the pan and cook 5 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 150˚F. You may have to cook them more or less depending on thickness. Place chicken on a plate or tray and tent with foil.

2. Back in the pan, heat 1½ tsp coconut oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add the cumin and peppers to the pan and cook for a few more minutes.

3. Cut cooked chicken into strips.

4. Add chicken juices from the plate or tray to the pan to help deglaze it and cook the peppers a minute more. When most of the liquid is gone, add the chicken and toss together.

5. Enjoy!

Meal Prep Tip:

If you're going easy on the carbs, toss the tortillas and try making romaine lettuce leaf tacos. The romaine has a satisfying crunch and the tacos have a freshness that makes them lighter than their more authentic counterparts.
