  • Start by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Add the sliced chicken and toss until well coated. Set it aside to marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  • For the seasoned rice. In a pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the rice and cook for a couple of minutes until slightly toasted. Add the broth, cumin, garlic powder, and salt. Stir well, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the rice is cooked and fluffy.
  • In a separate pot, prepare the spiced black beans. Heat the black beans in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the cumin, chili powder, paprika, and salt. Stir well and cook for 5-7 minutes until heated through and the flavors meld together. Keep warm.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sliced bell peppers and onion to the pan. Sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, salt, and black pepper. Sauté for 5-7 minutes until the veggies are tender-crisp and slightly charred. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Heat a separate skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated chicken and cook for about 6-8 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and nicely browned.
  • Assemble the chicken fajita bowls by dividing the seasoned rice, spiced black beans, mixed fajita veggies, and grilled chicken among four bowls.
  • Serve the bowls with optional toppings such as fresh cilantro, and salsa.
