- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and cut into strips
- 1 white onion, peeled, halved, and sliced
- 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts(6 to 8 ounces apiece), cut into strips
- 8 large iceberg lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry
- Nonfat Greek yogurt (optional)
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/2 cup salsa
- Salt and pepper, to taste
In a sauté pan over medium heat, put in olive oil and the chicken strips. Sprinkle on salt and pepper, and let it cook for 2 minutes, then add the bell pepper strips and the onions. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes until chicken is cooked through and golden on the outside.
Place chicken with onions and peppers in each lettuce leaf. Top with salsa and a dollop of nonfat Greek yogurt (optional). Fajitas in lettuce leaves can also be topped with guacamole, if desired.
