For most of our meals, we like to eat whole foods or foods that are minimally processed. We are not a low-carb family, but we choose to eat healthy carbs and focus on mainly proteins. Finding delicious recipes that fit these criteria can be difficult! One of our favorites was from Beyond Fit Physiques http://beyondfitphysiques.com/lazy-fajitas/
From their recipe, I altered it a bit and came up with the perfect one for our family. I can promise you, it’s as good as if I was eating out at our local Mexican restaurant!
1.5 lbs chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 TB Olive Oil
1.5 tsp chili powder (since our kids also eat this, we can’t make it too spicy)
1.5 tsp Cumin
1.5 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
Salt and Pepper
1 15 oz. can of regular Rotel
2 onions, sliced into strips
2 green peppers, sliced into strips
1 pack low carb tortillas
-Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
-Place your chicken into a 9 x 13 baking dish.
-Mix your Olive Oil with your spices in a small bowl. Pour this over your chicken breast strips and stir it all around to get the chicken coated.
-Pour your can of Rotel over the top and then add all your peppers and onions. Stir to combine well.
-Bake for 35 minutes (this will depend on the size of your chicken strips- keep an eye on it). Mine usually takes closer to 45 minutes.
While your chicken is in the oven, take out a skillet and toast your tortillas on both sides. This will make the low-carb tortillas seem a bit more like regular ones.
Here’s what your dish will look like when done baking:
We like to serve ours with a little sour cream and then wrapped in the low-carb tortilla. Delicious and filling!
