1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Add 1 1/4 cups water and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. While water comes to a boil, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Add chicken, half the garlic puree and half the Mexican Seasoning to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Add rice to the boiling water. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.

2

While rice cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Pan-fry until golden, 2-3 min per side. Remove pan from heat. Transfer chicken to a baking sheet. Roast in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 7-10 min.

3

While chicken cooks, thinly slice green onions. Zest, then cut lime into wedges. Add lime zest, 1/4 tsp sugar (dbl for 4 ppl) and sour cream to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.

4

Heat the same pan (from step 2) over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then poblano peppers, onions, remaining garlic puree and remaining Mexican Seasoning. Cook, stirring often, until peppers are tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Remove pan from heat, then transfer veggies to a plate.

5

Fluff rice with a fork. Heat the same pan over medium-high. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then rice. Cook, stirring occasionally, until any liquid is absorbed and rice starts to brown, 2-3 min. Add pepper and onion mixture and half the green onions. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until warmed through, 1-2 min.

6

Thinly slice chicken. Divide fajita rice between bowls. Top with chicken and salsa. Sprinkle cheese and remaining green onions over top. Dollop with lime crema. Squeeze over a lime wedge, if desired.
