Ingredients

FOR THE CHICKEN AND VEGGIES

  • 4 Chicken Breasts cut into strips
  • 3 Bell Peppers 1 red, 1 orange, and 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 medium Onion
  • Large Handful Green Beans
  • 2 heads Romaine Lettuce Hearts
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Lime slice for garnish
  • Dollop Salsa
  • Dollop 0% Plain Greek Yogurt

FOR THE GARLIC LIME MARINADE

  • 2 Limes juiced
  • 4 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Basel
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions

  1. Pre heat your oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Make the Garlic Lime marinade. Mix all the ingredients for the Garlic Lime marinade listed in the ingredients in a large bowl.

  3. Slice your chicken breasts into strips, and mix into the Garlic Lime marinade. The flavor is more intense if you let it actually marinade for at least a couple of hours... but often I don't have time for that, so it just gets to marinade in the time that it takes me to prep the veggies.

  4. Prep the Veggies. On a tin foil lined baking pan, place your sliced peppers, onions, and green beans.

  5. Drizzle veggies with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle on salt and pepper. (You could omit this step to cut the oil in the recipe. The oil in the marinade is enough to keep the veggies from sticking to the foil).

  6. Layer your chicken with all its garlic lime marinade on top of your veggies.

  7. Place in oven for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

  8. Prepare your lettuce, by ripping it up and washing it.

  9. Plate your meal. Layer your lettuce, fajita mixture, dollop of salsa, and a dollop of 0% Plain Greek Yogurt! Plain greek yogurt is awesome as a sour cream substitute. 

    Squeeze a bit more lime on top and mow down!!! Yummmmm!
