Jalapeno Lime Chicken

  • Author: María
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


Perfect for your next burrito bowl


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large jalapeno, sliced thinly
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 2 1/2 tsp Fajita Spice Blend, as needed
  • 1 1/2 tsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt, to taste


  1. Add everything except the chicken – so the olive oil, lime juice, garlic cloves, jalapeno, salt, and Fajita Spice Blend – to a mixing bowl and whisk it together into a marinade. 
  2. Add the chicken to the bowl and use your hands to work the marinade into the chicken. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least an hour, up to overnight. 
  3. About 30 minutes before you’re ready to cook pull the chicken from the fridge and let it rest on the counter. 
  4. After the chicken has come to room temperature, place a large frying pan over medium-high heat and allow it to preheat undisturbed for 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken to the hot pan in a single layer and let sear for 3 minutes. If you need to cook the chicken in batches, do that, but don’t crowd the pan.
  5. Flip the chicken and sear on the other side for 3-4 minutes. Continue cooking, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through. 
  6. Remove the chicken from the pan and let it rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes. Dice the chicken up, and then you’re ready to serve it! Dassit!
