2 small boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into half horizontally
2 cups sliced bell peppers, colors of choice
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
1 avocado, sliced


3 – 4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon brown sugar (optional)
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt


Whisk all the ingredients for the dressing/marinade in a bowl. Pour half the mixture onto the chicken breasts and coat them with marinade well. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours. Reserve the rest of the marinade for later to be used as dressing.

Heat a large pan over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add a teaspoon of avocado or olive oil to the pan and then add the chicken breasts. Cook 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove from plan onto a cutting board and cool for 5 minutes then slice or shop into bite size pieces. Add the sliced bell peppers to the pan. Cook on high for 1 – 2 minutes or until charred.

Divide romaine lettuce into two salad bowls. Top each salad withal the chicken, fajita veggies, and sliced avocado. Serve with the desired amount of reserved dressing.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
