  • 1 onion, sliced

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  1. Combine oil, chili powder, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken tenders, bell peppers, and onion; seal the bag and shake to mix. Marinate in the refrigerator, 30 minutes to 2 hours.

  4. Roast in the preheated oven, stirring halfway, until chicken is no longer pink and bell peppers are softened, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of chicken should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  5. Sprinkle cilantro and pour lime juice over chicken mixture; stir to distribute.
