Chicken Fajitas

Ingredients

4 limes, for juice
1 orange, for juice
1 3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons fajita seasoning
2 tablespoons canola oil
Large zip-top bag
1 package fresh sliced peppers and onions (14–16 oz)
8 medium flour tortillas

Prep

  • Squeeze limes for juice (1/4 cup); squeeze orange for juice (1/2 cup).
  • Cut chicken into 1/2-inch strips (wash hands).

Steps

  1. Combine lime juice, orange juice, seasoning, and oil to make marinade; reserve 1/4 cup for later use. Place chicken and remaining marinade in large zip-top bag (wash hands); seal bag and turn to coat chicken; chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Remove chicken from bag and place in pan (discard marinade); cook and stir 2–3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove chicken from pan. Add peppers and onions and reserved marinade to pan; cook and stir 2–3 minutes or until tender.
  3. Warm tortillas following package instructions. Return chicken to pan; cook and stir 2–3 minutes until chicken is 165°F. Serve chicken mixture in tortillas.

1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 ears fresh corn, husks and silks removed
1 lime, for juice
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon cilantro herb paste

Steps

  1. Preheat grill (or grill pan). Combine in microwave-safe bowl: oil, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Add corn, turning to coat evenly; cover and microwave on HIGH 7–8 minutes or until tender.
  2. Squeeze lime for juice (1 tablespoon). Combine in medium bowl: lime juice, mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro, and remaining 1 teaspoon chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
