Ingredients

1 pound (about 6) boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut lengthwise into strips about 1-inch wide

1 chipotle en adobo, minced (about 1 tablespoon)

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 medium red onion, quartered and sliced crosswise 1/2-inch thick

3 medium cloves garlic, thinly sliced (about 2 tablespoons)

2 medium bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, quartered lengthwise, and sliced into 1/2-inch strips

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth or water

2 teaspoons roughly chopped fresh oregano

6 to 8 flour tortillas, warmed, for serving

Pico de Gallo salsa, optional for serving

Guacamole, optional for serving

Sour cream, optional for serving

Directions

  1. Place chicken in a bowl, add chipotle, and salt and toss until meat is well coated. Set aside.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. When it smokes, add half of chicken and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and, return pan to stove, add 1 more teaspoon of the oil, and repeat with second batch.
  3. Add remaining 1 teaspoon of the oil, add onion and garlic and cook until golden and soft, about 2 minutes. Add peppers and cook until softened and golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pan, add broth and cook until sauce is slightly reduced, chicken is cooked through, and peppers are soft, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in oregano, taste, and adjust seasoning, as necessary. Serve immediately over steamed rice or potatoes.
