Super Easy Spicy Chicken & Onions

I love, love, love meals that I can pull together using just fresh meat and pantry staples, and this is one of them. I originally found this somewhere as part of a Chicken Fajitas recipe, but have only ever made the chicken, which I typically serve with rice pilaf. If you can't handle spices, maybe skip the chili powder!

Spicy Chicken and Onions
Serves 4

1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp lime juice (fresh is best - it would be the juice of 1 lime)
1 lb chicken tenderloins, cut into bite size pieces
1/2 onion, sliced

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours (can be up to overnight.) Cook on a grill pan until done, adding a bit more olive oil at the beginning, if necessary.
