Fajitas are a festive, sizzling dish that's full of lean protein, crisp, healthy vegetables, and fun! Because they only take about 20 minutes to prepare (plus marinating time, of course) and there's no oven to heat, they're the perfect summer evening treat.
  • 3/4 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-1/2- by 1-inch strips
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 tsp. coriander
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 medium onion, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 large green bell pepper (or 1/2 green bell pepper and 1/2 red bell pepper), cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 8 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, grated (optional)
  • Large nonmetal bowl
  • Large nonstick skillet
In large nonmetal bowl, combine lime juice, garlic, coriander, cumin, and red pepper flakes. Stir well, add chicken strips, mix to coat, cover, and let marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Spray large nonstick skillet with olive oil cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat until oil is hot but not smoking. Add chicken to skillet and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 or 2 minutes. Add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until vegetables are crisp-tender and chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Spoon chicken mixture onto lettuce leaves. Add some grated cheese (if desired). Top with a bit of salsa. (Makes 4 servings.)
