Directions

1
If you are baking, preheat oven at 350. If you are barbecuing, preheat grill on medium-high heat.
2
Start by making seasoning; in a bowl mix salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, oregano and paprika. Reserve 1/2 tbsp of mixed seasoning.
3
In a pan, over medium-high heat, add 1 tbsp olive oil. Add onions, peppers and a tablespoon of seasoning. Cook until onions are translucent.
4
Add reserved seasoning to onions and peppers and mix thoroughly.
5
Deglaze pan with chicken broth and let it reduce.
6
With the remaining seasoning, coat chicken. If you are baking, sear chicken breast on a heated nonstick pan. Sear each side for 1-2 minutes and then bake for 20 minutes. If you are barbecuing, add chicken to the grill and let it cook for 10 minutes each side. When chicken is cooked through, let it rest before slicing.
7
Make the lime crema by combining lime juice and sour cream together. Season with salt and pepper.
8
Toast tortillas on the barbecue for 30 seconds each side or alternatively, stack on a plate, cover and microwave for 1 minute.
9
To serve, add lime crema to a corn tortilla, top with onion, pepper mixture, sliced chicken, avocado and cilantro.
