Chili Cajun Chicken

1. Preheat the broiler on high heat.

2. Cut 1 lb of chicken breasts into 1-inch strips and dry. In a ziploc bag, toss 1/2 cup of almond flour, 3 tablespoons of cajun seasoning, 2 tablespoons of chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and spread evenly on a plate.

3. Place each strip on the plate, flip until it is evenly coated, and place it on an oiled pan.

4. Cook the coated chicken in the broiler on high heat for 2 minutes and then switch the broiler heat to low for 5 minutes. Finally, switch the heat back to high for another 2 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 170 (5-7 minutes).

5. Meanwhile, warm 1/4 teaspoon of minced garlic in 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a saute pan on medium heat. Once the oil begins to smoke lightly, add a sliced small sweet onion and salt and pepper (to taste). Stir every minute until the onions are carmelized.

6. Finally, add a layer of sliced green peppers. Stir frequently until the green peppers are warm and slightly firm.
