  • 3 onions, sliced;
  • 2 tbsp each oregano, chili powder, cumin and coriander;
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped;
  • Juice of 5 lemons;
  • 4 tbsp cooking fat (coconut oil, tallow or ghee are excellent here);
  • Butter lettuce to serve;
  • You choice of toppings: diced tomatoes, fermented pickles, sauerkraut, sliced avocados, salsa, guacamole, mayonnaise and/or salsa verde;

Instructions:

  1. Combine the chicken, bell peppers, onions, spices, garlic and lemon juice in a bowl and mix well.
  2. If preparing ahead of time, let marinate in the refrigerator for about 4 hours.
  3. When ready to cook, heat a large skillet on medium heat and cook the whole preparation with the cooking fat until the chicken is cooked through and the onion and bell pepper are soft.
  4. Put the hot chicken preparation in a large bowl and let the people prepare their own fajitas on top of lettuce leaves with their favorite toppings.
