Low Carb Chicken Recipes: Baked Chicken Fajitas

easy baked 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.  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).

        We tried this tonight. I have to tell you – it was as close to perfect as perfect can be.

        We didn’t even make any substitutions, and we used whole wheat tortillas.

        Incredibly simple and tasty recipe! Thanks!

            (LOL I’m not stalking you, I promise!)

            Okay, we’ve had this at least 6 times since I first wrote.

            And it’s been amazing every single time!!!! This is absolutely a keeper.

      Yes, I left it uncovered because I like for my veggies to get really tender and for my chicken to brown. You could however, if you prefer to cover.
