  3. Lay chicken cutlets down on a working surface and Sprinkle the chicken fillets with the spice mix. Place 6 bell pepper slices on the center of each chicken fillet (2 of each color). Roll each one tightly, keeping seam side down and secure with a toothpick. If any spices remain, sprinkle them on the chicken rolls.

Remove pan from heat and place pan in the oven (if the pan is oven safe. If it's not, transfer chicken to a baking sheet). Bake for 15 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked and peppers are charred.
  5. Serve with veggies, rice or tortillas. Garnish with cilantro and a squeeze of lime. Enjoy!
