Meal Idea Challenge

Christa's Blog has given us a challenge for her regular "Food Friday" post. She's asking 5 readers to post their meal idea.

Here's mine:

Chicken Fajitas

What you need:
Whole Grain Tortilla Shells
3 - 4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (depending on how many you're preparing for)
Olive Oil
Fat-free Italian Dressing
Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Peppers and any other veggies you like
Fajita seasonings (I buy the packet in the Mexican food aisle or you can create your own concoction using curry, garlic, onion, etc.)
Sour Cream (the "light" variety is preferred)
Shredded Cheese
*Optional: Brown Rice

First, cut your chicken into strips and fry with a small amount of olive oil & Italian dressing. Sprinkle in your seasonings and add any veggies you like.

Secondly, if you choose rice, prepare as you normally would. I use rice as an extra addition to my fajita or you can eat it on the side.

Third, chop your topping veggies (i.e. lettuce and tomato), shred your cheese.

Fourth: Warm the tortilla shells for just a few seconds in the microwave

Fifth: Set the table - don't forget your sour cream and salsa.

Lay it all out buffet style. Wrap & Enjoy!!

Makes a YUMMY quick meal!
