Healthy Chicken Fajitas Recipe
Love the simplicity of only using ONE pan for these healthy chicken fajitas! No multitasking and much easier cleanup. This recipe serves two. Who are you treating to this fiesta in your mouth? 🙂

This is also a great recipe to keep in mind when you are heading out to eat at your local Mexican Food restaurant. It’s possible to still eat out and stay on track to your goals! Just request the fajitas clean, and eat them without the tortillas, sour cream, and cheese!

Ingredients: (Serves 2)

Seasoning:

1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp ground paprika
1 tsp Himalayan salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Fajitas:

8 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into 1/2-inch thick strips (slice extra wide strips in half)
1 of each – red, green and yellow bell peppers, cored and sliced into strips
1 medium yellow onion, halved and sliced from top to root
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
3 Tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 avocado

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a 17 by 12-inch rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

For the seasoning: In a small separate mixing bowl whisk together chili powders, paprika, and salt and pepper. Set aside.

For fajitas: Spread bell peppers and yellow onion onto a baking sheet. Top with chicken strips then sprinkle minced garlic and seasoning evenly over chicken strips. Drizzle olive oil over top and toss everything to evenly coat. Spread into an even layer.

Cook in preheated oven, tossing once halfway through cooking, until veggies are tender and chicken has cooked through, about 25 minutes (test a few of the larger pieces to make sure they are 165 in the center, careful not to over-bake it or the chicken may be dry).

Once cooked, drizzle lime juice over the top of the tray and sprinkle with cilantro. Garnish with avocado slices.
