  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 cup rice (dry)
  • 1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 + 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, sliced (approx. 1)
  • 1 cup orange bell pepper, sliced (approx. 1)
  • 1 cup red onion, diced (approx. 1)
  • 540ml black beans drained and rinsed (1 can)
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 4 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Cook rice according to package instructions and set aside. Whisk together the fajita seasoning ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. In a medium bowl, stir together the chicken breast cubes, one tablespoon of olive oil, and two-thirds of the fajita seasoning mix until the chicken is well and evenly coated. Set aside the remaining third of fajita seasoning.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the red and orange pepper slices without any oil. Let them sit for 1-2 minutes until starting to char. Stir occasionally for another 2-3 minutes, until the edges are slightly charred and the peppers are just starting to soften. Remove the peppers from the pan and set them aside.
  3. Now add the chicken to the pan and let sear on each side, approximately 2-3 minutes per side. Stir only occasionally to allow the chicken to get seared. Once cooked through, remove the chicken from the pan and set it aside. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the remaining half tablespoon of olive oil. Add the red onion and let cook, stirring occasionally until starting to soften approximately 2-3 minutes. Add the corn and black beans and sprinkle with the remaining fajita seasoning. Stir to combine. Cook until the beans and corn are heated through, approximately 3 minutes, and remove from heat.
  4. Assemble your fajita bowls! In each bowl add the rice, charred peppers, seared chicken, black beans and corn, and 1 tablespoon of shredded cheddar. Add any of your other favourite toppings and enjoy!
