Cuisine: Mexican / American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 medium red onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 red bell pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper or green bell pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 4 portabella mushroom caps, sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 medium green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pickled jalapeno peppers

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Add the onion and bell pepper to the roasting pan that's been lined with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the oil and taco seasoning, spoon half over the vegetables and toss to coat. Place into a preheated 450-degree F oven and roast 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place the chicken onto a plate and spoon over the remaining oil mixture, turn to coat both sides of the chicken. Remove the vegetables from the oven. Add the chicken and portabella mushrooms to the pan, nestling in amongst the vegetables and adding any spice mixture left on the plate.
  4. Return to the oven and bake 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and vegetables tender. Squeeze over the lime. Scatter over the cilantro, green onions and jalapeno.
