Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 16 minutes

Ingredients

Chicken Fajitas-

  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 onion, thinly sliced

  • 3 bell peppers , thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil ( If you are watching your diet, I recommend using PAM instead)

  • 1 lime


Fajita Seasoning-

  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

For Serving-

  • 'Mission Carb Smart Tortilla Wraps'

  • Or put on a salad with Romaine and shredded lettuce

  • Low fat sour cream or use Plain Greek Yogurt as a substitute

  • Pico de Gallo

  • Avocado (optional)


Instructions

  • Add the fajitas seasoning ingredients to a small mixing bowl and stir together.

  • Generously sprinkle the fajita seasoning on both sides of the chicken and use your fingers to press it into the chicken.

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sear the chicken breasts for about 7-8 minutes on each side.

  • While your chicken is cooking, cut the bell peppers and onion into thin slices.

  • Once the chicken has finished cooking, remove it to a plate and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Add the bell peppers and onion to the same skillet over medium heat and sauté for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently.

  • When the bell peppers are just about done sauteing, slice the chicken breasts into strips.

  • Add the chicken back into the skillet, add a squeeze of fresh lime juice and stir everything together.

  • Serve immediately with Carb Smart tortillas, or put on a salad or white rice.

  • Add extra toppings such as sour cream, Pico de Gallo and guacamole.
