  2. Once heated, add sliced chicken and 1/2 Tbsp garlic. Cook until white (4-6 minutes).
  3. Remove chicken and let cool.
  4. While chicken is cooling add 1 Tbsp of water to the skillet. Add bell pepper, onion, and remaining garlic to skillet. Cook for 7-9 minutes.

  6. Cook through until vegetables are completely tender.


For a paleo version, eat this with lettuce wraps. If you do not follow a paleo diet, you can use soft corn tortillas or brown rice tortillas.
