Eating Clean Chicken Fajitas

10 Nov

We had these delicious fajitas last night for dinner.  Thank you stayathome_jen for posting it on SparkRecipes! She took a recipe for this out of the Clean Eating magazine, and changed some things to make it easier. Spicy and delicious! The chicken had a great flavor! We used corn tortillas.

Ingredients

    marinade:
    1 T. tabasco sauce
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 T. honey
    1 tsp. paprika
    1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
    2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, sliced into strips
    1 green bell pepper sliced into strips
    1 vidallia onion, sliced into strips
    4 whole wheat low carb tortillas
    2 tomatoes, diced
    4 oz. low fat cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions

Mix together all marinade ingredients in a pie plate or bowl. Add chicken strips and turn to coat. Let sit for at least 10 min.

Meanwhile get your pepper and onion washed and sliced into strips. Dice your tomatoes.

Heat olive oil in a large pan or wok. Stir-fry chicken until cooked through. Remove from pan and add pepper strips and onion stips. Stir fry until cooked to your preference. Add chicken back into the veggies and mix.

Serve 1/4 of the mixture rolled in a low carb tortilla with 1/4 of shredded cheese and 1/4 of the diced tomatoes.
