Ingredients

    2 lb chicken breast
    1 large orange, juiced
    2 limes, juiced
    2 Tbsp olive oil
    2 cloves garlic, pressed
    3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped fine
    1 1/2 tsp cilantro
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1 large onion, slivered
    4 bell peppers, green, orange, yellow, and/or red

Directions

Grill chicken. Cut into very thin strips. Place in a medium-sized bowl.

Prepare fajita sauce in a blender or food processor. Ingredients for sauce include orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, garlic, chipotle peppers, cilantro, and cumin. Process until ingredients are well-combined. Pour over chicken and let set while preparing remaining ingredients.

Sliver onion and peppers. In a large skillet prepared with cooking spray, over medium-high heat, saute the vegetables for about 3 minutes, or until onion starts to become clear. Add chicken and sauce. Cook another 5 minutes until sauce is reduced somewhat and bubbly.

To serve, wrap in flour tortillas or flat bread and toast on a griddle or Foreman grill. You may want to add a small amount of cheese before wrapping the tortilla/flat bread with the meat/pepper mixture and grilling.

One serving is 8 oz.

Serve with low-fat sour cream or guacamole
