Get ready to savor every bite! :tangerine::yum:



  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 oz Indian River Select orange juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced


  • 1.2 lb skinless chicken thighs or chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced


  • Place Marinade ingredients in a large bowl and mix. Add chicken, toss well to coat. Marinade for 1 hour to 24 hours (or freeze immediately then defrost overnight).
  • Use 2 skillets to cook the chicken and vegetables at the same time, if you can.


  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a heavy-based skillet over high heat until smoking. Add vegetables to cover the base of the pan in a single layer without too much overlapping (I cook in 3 batches). Spread out, and leave for 45 seconds (to char it).
  • Toss quickly then spread out. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Leave 45 seconds, toss then spread out, then leave 45 seconds. Remove onto the platter and repeat with remaining Vegetables.


  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until caramelized. Turn and cook the other side for 3 – 4 minutes.
  • Remove onto a plate, cover loosely with foil. Rest for 3 minutes then slice.


  • Warm tortillas.
  • Pile peppers and onion onto tortilla. Top with chicken, drizzle with sour cream, squeeze over lime juice.
  • Fold and devour!
