EWWK: Chicken Fajitas


3 tablespoons lime juice
½ teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 pound chicken breasts cut into 1-inch strips
1 medium green pepper, sliced
1 medium yellow or sweet onion, sliced
1 yellow squash sliced
1 tomato roughly chopped
1 tablespoon organic canola oil
4 (8-inch) whole wheat tortillas


Mix lime juice with cumin and chili powder. Pour over chicken; add the pepper, onion and squash.

Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray, add oil and place over medium heat. Once the oil is hot add the chicken mixture and stir-fry until the chicken is no longer pink and the vegetables are crisp-tender. Add the tomatoes in the last few minutes of cooking time.

Warm the tortillas in a microwave for 50 seconds on high or in a dry skillet. Fill each tortilla with chicken mixture and serve with salsa and reduced fat sour cream.
