This chicken fajita bowl is the perfect easy lunch or dinner. The flavorful rice, with just a hint of lime, is delicious with the slightly spicy chicken and tender peppers and onions. Topped with any of your favorite garnishes, you’ll feel like you’re eating a meal from your favorite restaurant!

Tip: To plan ahead, season the chicken thighs in the morning and refrigerate until ready to cook.

Tip: If you prefer to have your vegetables separate from the rice, cook in an aluminum foil pouch set on top of the rice in the pot. You can swap the peppers and onions for your favorite veggies, like zucchini or corn.
