2 red bell peppers, sliced into strips
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced into strips
1/2 red onion, sliced into strips
1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Chicken:

4 cloves garlic
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

For serving: lettuce leaves, cauliflower rice, salsa, low fat sour cream and cheese.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the chicken into the cleared out center of the baking dish.

In a small bowl, whisk together the chile powder, garlic, salt, ground cumin, oregano, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Then whisk in vegetable oil.

Spoon out marinade evenly over chicken breasts, coating full surface of one side of the chicken.
