How To Make Healthy Chicken Fajitas
For this fajitas recipe, chicken and quinoa are used in place of the usual beef and tortillas, making it low-carb and low cholesterol.
Mix chicken strips with seasonings and lemon juice and set aside.
Heat olive oil in a medium pan on medium heat and add the garlic, sautéing for about 1 minute. Quickly add the chicken broth and stir to avoid burning the garlic.
Add in the chicken and peppers, cover and cook on medium for about 5 minutes.
Then, add onion and remove from heat once the broth is bubbling and the peppers look fully cooked.
Mix Mongolian sauce with quinoa.
Serve chicken and veggies alongside prepared quinoa.
