  •  4  chicken breasts  (thin)
  • 1 cup white rice

Green Onion and Cilantro Sauce

  • 1 bunch of Cilantro
  • 4-5 Scallions
  • 2-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1 Lime, juice

Fajita Paste

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


  1. Place your rice in your steamer and cook.  (If you do not have a steamer, cook your rice in a pot on your stove)
  2. Light your grill and set the temperature to medium/low heat.
  3. Mix together the chili powder, salt, paprika, honey, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, cumin and olive oil.  This should be thick like a paste.  Thoroughly coat each breast with the fajita paste and set aside.
  4. Juice the lime into a small bowl and remove any seeds.
  5. Roughly chop the scallions and cilantro.  Place the herbs and lime juice in a food processor, bullet or blender and mix.  Slowly drizzle in some olive oil and mix until all ingredients are well combined.  It should have the consistency of a thick sauce.
  6. Grill your chicken for 5-7 minutes on side one and flip.  Cook for an additional 5 minutes on side two.  Tip: Your chicken is done when it easily lifts off the grill.  If it is stuck, allow your chicken to cook another minute or two.
  7. Toss white rice with green onion and cilantro sauce OR drizzle over rice on each individual plate as show above.
