Ingredients

  • 1 (4oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder or salt-free spice mix
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 yellow squash, sliced
  • 1/2 zucchini, sliced

Directions

Step 1

In a bowl or bag, marinate chicken in olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, and cilantro (if using).

Step 2

Heat fajita pan or skillet on medium. Add chicken and vegetables to pan. Cook 3 minutes, stirring often. Cover and cook 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Serve with corn tortillas and pico de gallo, if desired. Double the recipe to serve two or more, and replace chicken with mushrooms for a meatless dish.

Step 4

Handy Hint: To make pico de gallo, combine 2 chopped plum tomatoes, 1/4 chopped onion, juice of 1/2 lime, and desired amount of diced jalapeno.
