Chicken Fajitas

I love fajitas! One day I got the craving, but didn't know how to flavor it. I set to Googling, read tons of recipes, then adapted them to my own recipe. Each serving is 285 calories, 43g protein, 6g fat, and 2.5g fiber. Considering that the average adult woman needs 46g protein per day, this meal is superb for those on diets! Did I mention that I LOVE FAJITAS?! =0)



  • 6 boneless/skinless chicken breasts (small, about 25 oz. total)
  • 1 Tbsp. EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil)
  • 3 small onions (about 2.5 oz. each)
  • 3 large bell peppers, red, orange and yellow are nice (about 6.5 oz. each)
  • 3 tsp. minced garlic (3 cloves, minced)
  • 3 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp. chopped cilantro (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp. Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
  • salt and pepper to taste (or salt and lemon pepper to taste)


In a small bowl, mix together the lime juice, cilantro, and Splenda; set aside.

Slice onions into rings or wedges. Wash, seed and slice bell peppers into long strips; set aside.

Slice chicken breasts into thin strips. Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium to med-high, and saute the garlic for about 1 minute. Add in chicken, sprinkle salt and pepper to taste, and cook on medium heat until no longer pink.


Add in onions and peppers and stir together. Cook on medium heat until onions and peppers are softened to a tender-crisp, or how you prefer.

Drizzle lime mixture on top, and mix together. Cook for another minute or two, then take off heat.

Note: When dieting, I do not use cheese or tortillas with my fajitas. Sometimes I will place my fajitas over a serving of brown rice, though, if I've watched my calories during the day. I like Uncle Ben's Fast and Natural Whole Grain Brown Rice. Each serving (1/4 dry = about 1 cup cooked) contains 170 calories, 4g protein, 1g fat, and 2g fiber.
