Ingredients
  

  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 3 tbsp Taco sauce
  • 1 tbsp Cumin powder
  • 1 tsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Red bell pepper
  • 8 oz Shredded cheese
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (optional)
  • 3 fresh tomatoes (diced)
  • 2 limes (juiced)
  • 1 pkg sandwich wraps (8 count)

Instructions
 

Prep Work

  • Boil chicken breasts until cooked. (10-12 minutes) Remove from pot and cut into large strips. Place strips in plastic container. Add taco sauce, cumin powder, and vinegar. Thin out with water. Let chicken marinate for 30 – 60 minutes.
  • Dice tomatoes. Cut red pepper into long thin slices.

Grilling

  • Heat grill on stovetop to medium high. Cook red pepper slices for 4-5 minutes. Carefully pour a mixture of lime juice and water on the red peppers. Warning: This produces a flash of hot steam. Remove peppers from grill and set aside.
  • Put marinated chicken on the grill. Cook each side for 2-3 minutes. You want nice grill marks on the chicken. Again, with a mixture of lime juice and water, “sizzle” the chicken strips. (see warning above) Turn chicken strips and “sizzle” a second time.
  • Remove chicken strips from grill and break into smaller chunks.

Assembling Fajitas

  • Place a sandwich wrap on a flat surface. Top with chicken chunks. Add red peppers, cheese, and diced tomatoes. Top with greek yogurt (optional).
  • Roll the wrap and cut in half. (Makes it less messy to eat) Serve immediately.

Chicken Fajitas with Low Carb Tortillas

Our sizzling chicken fajita recipe features low carb fajitas. There are many brands and varieties of wraps available today. However, you need to understand that many of these products taste rather bland. In fact, I often compare the poor flavor to “eating cardboard”.

    I tried this recipe and was pleased with how tasty it was and how easy it was. My boyfriend hates most of my low-carb recipes but he certainly gobbled these down without a second thought. Thanks for making a low-carb recipe that is so delicious.

    1. This is one of my all-time favorite recipes to make. Glad you could sneak the low-carb wraps past your boyfriend.
