Low-Fat Chicken Fajita Salad For 2

Submitted by: GRATEFULSNED

Introduction

The foolproof way to restaurant-style fajita salad! The foolproof way to restaurant-style fajita salad!
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1 bell pepper, any color
    1/2 large sweet onion
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    6 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
    2 cups lettuce, any variety
    2 Tbsp low-fat sour cream
    2 oz low fat cheddar cheese

Directions

Slice bell pepper and onion into strips. Place in a skillet and toss with olive oil, turn on medium heat, and add salt (approx 3 turns from a grinder). The salt makes the water from the vegetables leak out and allows for faster caramelization. Cook until soft, approx 20 minutes.

While veggies are cooking, cook the chicken breasts using whatever method works best for you; I prefer the George Foreman grill and rub salt and pepper into the breast before cooking. Cook until fully white inside. Slice into strips.

Prepare two salad bowls with 1 cup lettuce each, 1 oz cheddar cheese each (shredded), and 1 Tbsp low-fat sour cream each.

Divide the veggies and chicken into the two bowls and toss- and eat! May add salsa, also good with brown rice (not included in nutritional info)

    Very quick, easy and refreshing. I made a spice mix for the turkey breast using s+p, paprika,granulated garlic and cumin. I also skipped the cheese for avacado slices. Forgot the onions! (but will use next time) Really nice change from 'normal' salad, thanks! - 5/30/10

  • I made it with fajita seasoning and left off the cheese but added some fresh gaucamole. Makes for an easy way to get some veggies in by putting it on a salad! - 5/5/09

  • Super yummy! I used a fajita seasoning on the chicken. Next time I might try with a pita bread to make a lite version of my fav Taco Bell Chalupa. :) - 1/12/09

  • I made this for dinner last night and my husband and I really liked it. I cut the oil to 1 teaspoon and it was plenty for us. I used shredded, low fat Mexican cheese. I gave my husband a serving of brown rice with it. We plan on making it again tonight! - 4/24/08
