Skinny Chicken Fajitas

Skinny Fajitas 1

Here’s another easy, healthy, satisfying weeknight meal for you!  You can modify these Skinny Chicken Fajitas to fit lots of different food plans, including picky eaters, so they’re very family friendly.  In my house the kids and Jim eat them with organic corn tortillas, and I sometimes eat them with a large piece of lettuce, instead of the tortilla.  Corn tortillas make my sugar levels go too high, so I try to avoid them.  If you have a really picky eater, just give them the chicken and whatever else they’ll eat…mix and match the toppings as you see fit!  To make the fajitas paleo friendly, skip the beans and definitely use lettuce for the tortillas.  To make them vegetarian or vegan, skip the chicken and add extra beans.

There are so many superfoods in this recipe, it’s hard for me to pick one or two to tell you about the health benefits.  How about the bell peppers and onions…the ingredients that provide the most flavor in these fajitas!  One health benefit of red bell peppers that is of particular interest to me is that they are high in magnesium and vitamin B6.  These two nutrients work well together to fight anxiety.  Anxiety runs in my family and I’ve struggled with it quite a bit!  Magnesium also helps to relax your muscles and alleviate constipation.  Red peppers help improve your night vision and increase metabolism, without increasing heart rate and blood pressure (I’m guessing the magnesium helps keep the heart rate and blood pressure right).  For more information about red peppers check out this article.  Want more about nutrients that fight anxiety?  Here’s another helpful article.

I won’t say too much about onions, but want to remind you that they help fight cancer, boost your immune system, and help balance blood sugar levels.  Onions should be a big part of your weekly food plan!  Try serving them both raw and cooked, so you get the full spectrum of their health benefits.

Instructions
  1. Slice the onions and bell peppers really thin. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat and melt the coconut oil in it. Add the veggies and season them with salt and pepper.

  2. While the veggies cook dice up your garlic. Make sure to stir the onions and peppers periodically with a metal spatula. Add the garlic for the last couple minutes of cooking. Cook these veggies until they're a little brown and soft.
  3. While the veggies are cooking tear off pieces of your chicken and set out the other toppings. If you're using tortillas heat them up, as well. My favorite way to prepare tortillas is to heat them directly over the gas flame of our stove top.
  4. Set out all of the toppings and let your family build their own fajitas. Enjoy!
