Grilled Chicken Fajita Bowl

Fajitas are probably my favorite Mexican dish. I love the fresh, spicy, sizzling protein and veggies, and I love topping them with my favorite toppings. You can't really complain about meat, veggies, spice, and cheese thrown together. So  I decided to take this classic Mexican dish and put a healthier twist on it.


Here's what you'll need:

For the marinade:

-1/4 tsp cumin
-1/4 tsp cilantro
-1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
-1/2 tsp black pepper
-1/2 tsp paprika
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1 tsp chili powder
-the juice of two limes
-2 tsp olive oil

For the meal:

-2 chicken breasts (used 5 oz chicken breast for the nutrition info)
-2 cloves garlic
-1 Anaheim pepper, chopped
- 1 portobello mushroom top cut into chunks
-1 zucchini, sliced
-1 tsp oregano
-1/2 tsp chili powder
-1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
-3 tbsp Mexican cheese blend
-Salsa and non-fat Greek yogurt to taste (nutrition information accounts for 1 tbsp of each)


1) Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl or bag and marinade the chicken for at least 30 minutes.
2) Once the chicken is marinated, cook on the grill (you make also bake or cook as you please) until fully cooked. I cooked mine for about 10 minutes per side, but grills and temperatures may vary.
3) Heat up a large pan and coat with cooking spray (I use coconut oil spray).
4) Add in the garlic and cook for about 1 minute alone.
5) Add in the pepper and zucchini and cook for about 3-5 minutes.
6) Add in the mushrooms, oregano, chili powder, and salt and continue to cook for about 5 minutes until all of the vegetables are cooked through.
7) Sprinkle the cheese over the vegetable mixture, remove from heat, and cover. Let sit for about 1-2 minutes until cheese melts.
8) Serve the vegetable and cheese mixture, splitting between two bowls.
9) Top each bowl with salsa and Greek yogurt as desired as well as a piece of the grilled chicken.
10) Enjoy!

I used non-fat Greek yogurt as a substitute for sour cream. Let me know what you think of the dish in the comments below, and feel free to subscribe!
