Low Carb Chicken Recipes: Baked Chicken Fajitas

Chicken Fajitas

Recently, I’ve seen all kinds of yummy looking recipes all over facebook.  Since many are shared, and not linked to the original source I am a little leary of trying the recipe.  Anyone can type up a recipe, and find an image that appears to go with it.  So, when a recipe gets my attention I prefer to test it out in my kitchen.  Of course I am not a great recipe follower, so I tend to change up the ingredients a bit to suit my family’s taste.  We loved this recipe,  although it was a little spicy.  I  made homemade Mexican Brown rice to serve with the Baked Chicken Fajitas to complete the meal.  If you are looking for low carb chicken recipes,  I would suggest serving the chicken fajitas in lettuce wraps or whole grain tortillas.  Since we  completed our AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge, we are still following the principles of the eating plan so this recipe worked perfectly.  My husband and I both feel so much better and he has lost 43lbs (see our story here).
