Take 1 medium sized onion and cut it into thin slices. Cut 3 capsicum (red, yellow and green) into thin strips. Heat some oil in a pan and fry onion and capsicum for 1-2 minutes. Season with a little salt and pepper and cook it until it becomes soft and soft.
Pour the chicken pieces back into the pan and squeeze some lemon juice over the top. Mix it well with onion and capsicum. Slice the chicken into thin strips and top it with some chopped cilantro. Then serve it.
