  • 1
    Heat 10- to 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of the oil. Pound chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper until thin. Cut into small strips; place in skillet. Cook 5 minutes or until no longer pink; remove from skillet to plate.

    Heat remaining teaspoon oil in same skillet. Add onion, bell pepper, garlic and thyme; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until onion and bell pepper are soft.
  • 3
    Stir in chile, adobo sauce, fajita seasoning mix and 1 tablespoon of the water; cook 1 to 2 minutes. Return chicken to skillet; cook 1 minute longer, adding remaining water if needed so fajita seasoning completely coats chicken. Remove from heat; stir in cheese until melted.
