The Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement - Chicken Fajitas

After unpacking for weeks and weeks, I've finally found my cookbooks!  Most importantly, my 452-page Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook.  So many great recipes, that are actually YUMMY - and it doesn't matter if you're on Weight Watchers or not!  (Which by the way, I lost 20 lbs on after I had Luke.) Expect many more recipes from this book coming your way!

Weight Watchers Chicken Fajitas

-2 tbsp. Lime Juice
-1 tbsp. Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce
-1 tsp. Chili Powder
-Pinch Crushed Red Pepper
-10 ounces skinless boneless Chicken Breasts, cut into thin strips
-4 teaspoons vegetable oil (if desired)
-1Green Bell Pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
-1Red Bell Pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
-1 Onion, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
-4 (6 in.) fat free flour tortillas (or low carb)
-1/2 c. Salsa, for garnish
-1/4 c. fat free Sour Cream, for garnish
-Chopped fresh Cilantro, for garnish

1. Prepare the marinade, in a zip-closed plastic bag, combine the lime juice, soy sauce, chili powder, and red pepper; add the chicken. Seal the bag, squeezing out the air; turn to coat chicken. Refrigerate, turning bag occasionally, at least 2 hours or overnight. Drain and discard marinade.
2. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat 2 tsp. of the oil (if you want). Saute the bell peppers and onion until softened, 8-10 minutes. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
3. In the skillet, heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil (if you want you can grill the chicken instead, it tastes just as good if not better). Saute chicken until cooked through, 3-5 minutes.

Number of Servings: 4

Buon Appetito!
