Method

Preheat oven to 375 F.

For the fajita vegetables: In a large ziplock bag combine olive oil, vegetables, and taco seasoning. Mix well until evenly coated and set aside.

On a large plate, empty out the Al Pastor Seasoning and use it to coat the chicken evenly.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the chicken on one sheet and vegetables on the other. Place in the oven and check vegetales after 15 minutes. Continue to bake chicken until cooked through (approx. 30 minutes.)


Chef La Pref Tip: Cook chicken and vegetables at the same time. Remove vegetables after 15 minutes and allow chicken to continue cooking.

While the chicken and vegetables are cooking, prepare the rice according to package directions. Once cooked, fluff and spread out on a plate to cool down.

Strain beans and combine in a pan with green chiles over medium heat. Bring to a simmer then remove from stove.
