Healthy Living: Chicken Fajitas by Kate Horney

fajitas

It’s pretty easy to get into a ‘meal rut’ every now and then. I know it happens at my house more often than I would like to admit! Especially when you are eating healthy, it can feel like the options are limited. So to mix things up, I recently made these Chicken Fajitas and they really spiced things up (pun intended J).

You can make these the healthy way and have them on a bed of greens or try it on brown rice or a tortilla. You really can’t go wrong!

Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas Ingredients:

– 4 large bell peppers cut into thin strips

– 2 medium onions cut into thin strips

– 1.5 pounds chicken breast cut into thin strips

– 1 teaspoon ground cumin

– 1.5 teaspoons chili powder

– 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

– 1/2 teaspoon paprika

– 1/4 teaspoon pepper

– 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

– 1/4 cup lime juice

Directions:

– spray inside of slow cooker with cooking spray

– put the peppers and onions in the bottom of the slow cooker

– combine chicken and remaining ingredients until mixed

– pour chicken mixture in the crock pot

– cover and cook on low for 2 hours

– stir and then cover and cook for another 2 hours

This makes 4 servings and as stated above, can be served alone, on a salad, on a tortilla, or over rice.
