Cut four squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil, about 16 inches square.
Lay out on your counter and top each with a 16-inch square of parchment paper (optional)
Slice chicken breasts crosswise into thin strips. Toss with a little olive oil and up to 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning mix. Place one breast on each of the foil/parchment paper squares.
Divide peppers and onions evenly and arrange beside each of the chicken breasts.
Sprinkle the peppersand onions with ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika, if desired. Drizzle the chicken and peppers with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Squeeze a little lime juice on each.
Fold foil loosely over chicken securing ends, but allowing a little space for heat to circulate. Refrigerate until ready to grill.
Grill over medium heat, checking for doneness after 20 minutes. Use an instant-read thermometer to make sure the thickest pice of chicken registers 165°F.
Garnish with cilantro and serve with sliced avocados or homemade guacamole,cherry tomatoes, sour cream, and tortilla chips.
