Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Cut the bell peppers in half, lengthwise, and remove all the seeds and membrane. Place halved green bell peppers in a baking dish.
