Healthy Chicken Fajitas

Ashley here. I wanted to share this super easy dinner idea for you guys. It's one of my favorites and a go-to meals. Plus I think I particularly like Mexican food when I am pregnant.

What you'll need is...

2 Chicken Breasts 
1 bell pepper
Taco Seasoning
Spinach or whole wheat tortillas
And any of your favorite toppings. I like... Salsa, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, olives and some low fat shredded cheese.

For tonight I doubled the recipe because I wanted extras for the week. Between working, kid's football games, a sister's graduation and getting ready for the Little Red Riding Hood Bike ride this weekend.... Let's just say this week is a busy one. So having dinner in the fridge ready to warm up. I'll take it.

Step 1. Cut your chicken breasts into cutlets. (cutting them in half so they are not as thick). Oh and then I like to pound it out a little to tenderize it.

Step 2. Sprinkle/Rub the taco seasoning on the raw chicken.
 Step 3. Cook chicken in a medium preheated pan.
 Step 4. While the chicken is cooking, slice your bell pepper and sprinkle with taco seasoning.
 Step 5. Once chicken is cooked through and through. Slice it.....
 Step 6. Put those peppers in the same pan you just cooked the chicken with.
 Step 7. Once the peppers are tender toss them with the chicken.
 Step 8. In another pan, warm up your tortilla with some low fat shredded cheese.
 Step 9. Load it up  with all your favorite toppings.
 Step 10. Wrap that bad boy up....
 ....and enjoy every bite.

Easy right? And if you double it, then you've got two meals set for the whole week. And if your lucky some lunches for work too.
