Smoky Chicken

4 skinless boneless chicken breasts, about 1.5 lbs.⁣
2 Tbsp olive oil, or avocado oil, divided⁣
1.5 Tbsps smoked paprika⁣
1 tsp garlic powder⁣
1 tsp ground cumin ⁣
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper⁣
2 red bell peppers, chopped⁣
1 large red onion, chopped⁣
3-4 garlic cloves, pressed⁣


Place your chicken in a shallow dish, and sprinkle with smoked paprika, garlic powder, cumin, sea salt and pepper. Drizzle one tablespoon of oil and, using your hands rub it on all sides to coat well with the seasonings.⁣

Set aside for a few minutes to marinate.⁣

Preheat a gas grill, stovetop grill pan, or a cast iron pan over medium high heat.⁣

Place the chicken on your preheated grill and cook for about 4 minutes on each side (Internal temperature should read 165F). Once cooked through, transfer to a cutting board and let it rest for a few minutes, before slicing.⁣

Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a skillet over medium heat, and add in the onions, bell peppers and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.  Add chicken and serve.
