Chicken Fajitas

A fajita is a Mexican cuisine that involves grilled meat. The term originally referred to skirt steak, the cut of beef first used in the dish.  This version of fajitas skips the tortilla for a super satiating meal that would be ideal if you are trying to lose fat with less hunger. The chicken provides heaps of bioavailable protein, B3, B6, B12, choline, selenium and zinc while the veggies fill in the vitamins C and K.
