For the Chicken & Capsicum
1In a large shallow bowl, combine lime juice, oil, garlic, cumin, salt, chili and coriander; mix together. Slice the chicken thighs into strips and and If time allows, let marinate for 30 minutes.
2Heat a large non stick pan on medium-high heat until smoking. Add a drizzle of olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Sear the chicken on both sides until golden, charred and cooked right through (about 8 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your fillets). Flip them a couple of times while cooking so they get a nice even char.
3Transfer chicken to a warm plate, loosely tent with foil and let rest.
4Add the capsicum to the pan (drizzle with a little extra oil only if needed), and cook until soft and slightly charred. Season with salt and pepper.
1Combine lettuce, beans, capsicums, tomatoes, shredded cheese into 4 bowls. Arrange chicken strips into bowls. Top each with avocado, dollup with sour cream & salsa then garnish with fresh coriander.
1Leftover rice - store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
