Restaurant Style Chicken Fajitas pack a ton of flavor, but are so easy to make. Sizzling skillet chicken, peppers and onions, and a delicious combination of spices give these chicken fajitas a punch of flavor. This chicken recipe is a family-favorite, and is so versatile in how it can be served; I love eating this chicken on top of salads, in a bowl with rice, or on tortillas with all the fixin's.

Thinly slice the chicken breast.
Combine the kosher salt, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, lime juice and olive oil in a small bowl.
Rub the marinade all over the pieces of chicken.
Cover the chicken in a bowl (or freezer bag) and place in the fridge to marinate.
Marinate for at least a half hour before cooking, longer is preferred.
Add olive oil spray to a cast iron skillet over medium high heat.
Thinly slice the peppers and onions and add them to the skillet. Add a pinch of kosher salt. Cover with a lid.
Steam the vegetables for 10 minutes, removing the lid every so often and tossing them with tongs. Add more olive oil spray as needed.
Once the peppers and onions are done cooking, remove them from the pan and set aside in a bowl.
Add more olive oil spray to the pan.
Add the full pieces of chicken to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes per side, flipping once.
Remove the cooked chicken from the pan, and place on a cutting board.
Cut into strips.
Add the chicken back to the pan with the peppers and onions, and add the salsa.
Let the mixture cook together for 2 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
