I served the chicken fajita filling with brown rice, black beans, homemade guacamole and roasted brussel sprouts. (To make a quick homemade guacamole, just mix two ripe hass avocados with the juice of 1/2 lime and salt to taste - super easy and really yummy!) You can make fajitas in a whole grain tortilla, or build fajita bowls with beans and rice like my husband and I did. My toddler had a chicken "Taco" (no peppers and onions for him) with a giant bowl of brown rice and beans - his favorite! I bought a can of cuban style black beans, all ready to go - check the ingredient list and make sure your can has nothing you can't pronounce. You will LOVE this recipe!
Sarah's original recipe inspired by http://realmomkitchen.com/9318/oven-baked-chicken-fajitas/
1.5 lbs or about 2 large boneless, skinless, chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
1 red pepper, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 onion, sliced (or enough to make the amount of peppers and onions about the same)
2 T olive oil
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
assorted toppings such as salsa, reduced-fat shredded cheese, lettuce, reduced-fat sour cream, guacamole
whole grain tortillas or rice & beans for serving
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray. Place the cut up chicken in the pan and sprinkle all the seasonings on top.
Slice the peppers and onions and place in the pan. Toss with the chicken until well combined.
|Try to cut up equal amounts of pepper and onion.|
