Preparation -- 10 minutes

In a large bowl, mix 1 tablespoon smoked powdered paprika, 1/2 tablespoon powdered cumin and 2 teaspoons powdered garlic together. Mix well. Clean the chicken breasts and dice.

Add the diced chicken breasts into the large bowl with the herb mixture. Season with salt, pepper and tabasco to liking. Mix well. Slice / dice the onion as finely as possible.

Heat up a splash of olive oil in one of the two skillets on medium-high heat. Add in the onion and cook until glazed. Add in the diced chicken filets. Cook the chicken golden-brown while preparing the rest of the ingredients.

Keep stirring every now and then using a wooden spoon. Slice half a red, yellow and green bell pepper in long strips.

Cook the strips alongside with the chicken for a few minutes, it doesn't have to be cooked thoroughly.
