Quick and Tasty Chicken Fajitas

This is one of our family’s favorite dinners, and the leftovers for  lunch the next day are even better!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 3 sweet peppers (I love to use red peppers)
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Corn Starch
  • Olive oil
  • Whole Wheat Tortillas

Chicken Fajitas

Cut the sweet peppers and onions into strips, and chop the garlic into small pieces.  I make quick work of all of this by using my food processor.

Add one tablespoon of olive oil to the frying pan on medium high heat.  Add the garlic, and stir until those good garlic smells start…should be only about 30 seconds to 1 minute.  Add the peppers and onion, and stir until they start to get soft (about 4 minutes).  Remove to a bowl and set aside.

Chop the chicken into long strips.  I find it’s easier if the chicken is slightly frozen, and I use the food processor for this step as well.  Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the pan and heat on medium high heat.  Add the chicken, and turn until no longer pink.

While the chicken is cooking, mix together the soy sauce, lemon juice, and corn starch in a bowl.  Once the chicken is done, add the sauce to the mixture, and stir until bubbly.  Add the peppers, onion, and garlic back into the pan.

Place a tortilla on a paper towel and warm it in the microwave for 15 seconds.  Place some of the chicken and pepper mixture in the middle of the tortilla, fold up the bottom, fold in the sides, and ENJOY!

Healthy Chocolate Peppermint Patty Drink Recipe

Shakeology Meal Replacement ShakeSince today is St. Patrick’s Day, I thought that I would give this recipe a second try.  I’ve seen my friends RAVE about this, but I tried it once and didn’t like it one bit.  Well, I discovered my mistake.  I’ll tell you about that in a minute!

Recipe: Put a lot of ice (I used 7 large cubes) in a blender.  Add some water (I used about a cup…you may need more).  Add one scoop of chocolate Shakeology and 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract (I may use a little less next time).   Blend!  It tasted like a Pepermint Patty version of a Wendy’s Frosty!

NOTE:  I have a vita-mix blender, which is very powerful.  If you are using a regular blender, you may want to crush the ice first (before adding the rest of the ingredients).  Also, you may need some more water to get it to blend.  If so, you can add it to the freezer for a little while to get it to that frosty consistency!

Now, the mistake I made the first time?  I used mint extract instead of peppermint extract!  HUGE difference!  Don’t make the same mistake I did!  :-)

This drink was healthy, delicious, and only 140 calories!  It also left a very pleasing after taste in my mouth!  :-)

Let me know if you try it!

P.S.  If you don’t have Shakeology, I’m sure you could try this with chocolate protein powder.  You won’t get a drink that is as nutrient dense as the Shakeology, but it could still be a nice snack!

If you want more information about Shakeology, feel free to visit my Shakeology website.  Stay tuned because tomorrow I’m going to post about a great deal available with Shakeology and the legendary home workout routine called “Slim in 6″!
