Healthy Chicken Fajitas

Chicken Fajitas

Ohhh I love fajitas! Who can honestly resist juicy chicken, red peppers and onions flavoured with mexican spices? This is a super easy dish to make at home, you just throw stuff in the pan and, this is my favourite part, eat it! Serve it up with some warm tortillas, some fresh avocado and you got yourself one-a spicy meat-a-ball, er… should I say fajitas? Point is, this dish is delicious, fresh, very customisable and if served with some fresh salad greens and wholegrain wraps, very healthy.

The recipe I’ve written is made to be separated into 6 servings for lunches. If you know anything about IIFYM this recipe has calories: 261, protein: 33g and carbs: 23g. I’ve already added this recipe to MyFitnessPal under the recipe title ddbagel Chicken Fajitas so you can log it and/or make any additional changes to the recipe! I’ll even show you later how to use this recipe for a whole week of lunches! So what are you waiting for?

Time to plate up! Serve with some warm tortillas and guacamole. Or, if you want an even tastier and healthier option (but not so traditional) serve it with a warm multigrain wrap, some avocado, salsa, salad greens and pico de gallo! Oh boy, I loooove fajitas.

Healthy Fajitas 6 servings
Ingredients
– 3 multigrain wraps, cut in quarters
– 750g skinless chicken breast, sliced
– 2 medium brown onions, sliced
– 1 large red capsicum/bell pepper, sliced
– 1 packet of taco spice ( I used Old El Paso Taco Seasoning)
– 9 cups mixed salad leaves
– 1/4 cup water

Method
After preparing ingredients, add the onion and capsicum to a pan on medium heat.

When the onions are soft add the chicken and cook.

Add the taco spice and mix thoroughly.

Pour in the water and allow to simmer.

When the chicken is cooked separate into 6 servings, with 2 quarters of a wholegrain wrap and 1 – 2 cups of salad. Enjoy!
