    I cut the chicken in strips, omitted the salt and added the juice of 1/2 lime to create a marinade and let it sit at least an hour. Grilled the chicken [no oil] with onion slices and pepper strips. Way lower calories! Way flavor, fiber and veggies too! - 3/5/11

    Really liked these....I normally don't measure the spices so I didn't put enough on the chicken. We added lettuce,tomato,shredded cheese and a little sour cream. They were a lot more filling than I thought they would be! - 5/19/09

    These were excellent! My boyfriend and I had them for dinner tonight. The only thing I did differently was that instead of cooking the chicken with the onions, I boiled the whole chicken breasts and then pulled the chicken. It worked great. - 1/9/08

    I used 3.2 oz of the chicken mixture and 1 T. salsa for each tortillas and it makes 10 servings of 1 tortilla each. I deleted the salt totally, not needed for people with HBP. We need better tasting corn tortillas in our area, otherwise it was very good. Wonder if you could add green peppers, etc - 4/11/09

    I've made this but had to change the ingredients and tweak it a bit. I used an olive oil spray instead of all that oil and NO salt. Experiment with spices (esp. chili) and you won't need the salt. I used a whole wheat wrap instead of the tortilla and salsa instead of sour cream. - 12/28/07

    Squeezing a lime (or lemon) wedge over the finished meal can help prevent the need for the salt. Slicing part of an avocado over the fajita can add healthy fats (in moderation). I love fajitas. - 3/31/09

  • I would omit the salt, reduce the chicken and oil by at least half or just spray or spritz the pan with olive oil, add green pepper strips, and simmer all in about 1/2 c of beer. Use whole wheat tortillas as the wrap, top with shredded lettuce, salsa,and low fat Sargento's 4 cheese mexican cheese. - 3/5/11
