Chicken Fajita Rice Bowl | THM: E

Save for later!

This Chicken Fajita Rice Bowl is an easy, flavorful Trim Healthy Mama-friendly E dinner with a fiesta flair. If you want a Fuel Pull meal instead, you could omit the brown rice. For an S meal, you could stuff the roasted chicken and peppers in a low-carb wrap with sour cream and cheese. For an S helper, limit your rice to 1/4 cup or less, use sour cream instead of 0% fat Greek yogurt, and sprinkle on a little cheddar.

Serving this dish with a dollop of 0% Greek yogurt instead of sour cream keeps it lean, while still adding creaminess and extra protein. A squeeze of lime adds a fresh kick.  I like to roast my chicken breast strips and pepper mixture on a stone bar pan to lock in the moisture.
