Chicken Yucatan

READY IN: 26mins
Recipe by Oolala

"A flavorful, but not spicy, Mexican inspired dish. It cooks quickly, so if you want to serve a salad with this, get the chicken marinating and make the salad." I didn't put marination time in time on recipe since it can be anywhere from 10 minutes to 24 hours.

Pretty good dish- makes easily enough for 4 hearty servings. I used one very large red bell and only one can of tomatoes, which is a bit less than called for- I did that because the dish looked watery and I didn't want to drown it with 2 cans. This was definitely the predominant thing- the tomatoes- with just one can. We like spice, so I added 1/2 a jalapeno and extra hot sauce. The marinade is lovely- kept the chicken very tender. Thank you for sharing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the chicken into slices 1/8-1/4" thick. Marinate in a mixture of garlic, oregano, cumin, orange juice, vinegar, and hot sauce. Allow to marinate 10 minutes up to 24 hours, covered in the refrigerator.
  2. Meanwhile, chop vegetables.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add oil and heat 30 seconds; add chicken and stir fry about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add onions and peppers and stir fry another 1-2 minutes, or until chicken is completely opaque. Add tomato and ground pepper and cook just until heated through.
  5. Serve over brown rice with a side salad.
