Syns per serving:
- 1lb chicken breast strips (or pork/beef strips)
- 3 mixed bell peppers, seeds removed and cut into strips ½ inch wide
- 1 zucchini, cut into ½ inch strips
- 3 scallions, trimmed and halved lengthwise
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 head of lettuce, washed and drained
- 2 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
- Place the meat in a bowl and add the bell pepper, zucchini strips and the scallions. Sprinkle with the smoked paprika, mustard powder, and garlic powder and mix well. Set aside to marinate for 5 minutes.
- Preheat a sauté or frying pan until very hot.
- Season the meat and vegetables with salt and pepper to taste and cook in the hot pan in 3 batches, for 6–7 minutes, turning occasionally. If cooking on the grill, spread the chicken and vegetables on a grill pan and cook for 8–10 minutes, turning occasionally.
- Make a bed of lettuce with the washed leaves in a large shallow bowl and arrange the tomato wedges on top.
- Serve the meat strips and vegetables on top of the salad.
Tip: Another Free way to create delicious fajitas is to whisk a single egg and fry, like a crèpe, in a skillet using low-calorie cooking spray. The thin, cooked egg works just as well as a tortilla and saves you loads of Syns!
