1 package Old El Paso™ fajita seasoning mix
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
1/2 cup diced onion
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup water
2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray 13×9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.

  3. Heat 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add bell peppers and onion; cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peppers and onion blister and char slightly or until cooked to your liking. Remove peppers and onion from skillet; keep warm.
  4. Return same skillet to medium heat. Add oil and chicken; cook on each side until browned and no longer pink in center. Sprinkle remaining fajita seasoning mix over chicken. Add water; cook and stir until sauce thickens. Return peppers and onion to skillet; stir to coat.
  5. Spoon chicken, peppers and onion into baking dish. Top with seasoning-coated biscuit pieces.
  6. Bake 20 minutes or until biscuit pieces are thoroughly baked and light golden brown. Sprinkle cheese over top; bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
