  • 2 teaspoons canola or olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into strips
  • 4 cups thinly sliced vegetables, such as onions, bell peppers, zucchini, and/or mushrooms (14 oz.)
  • 1¼ teaspoons chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 8-inch whole-wheat tortillas
  • ½ cup prepared guacamole
  • ½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a large wok or cast-iron or other stick-resistant skillet (not Teflon-based nonstick, see Tip) over high heat. Add chicken, vegetables, chili powder, and salt; cook, tossing with tongs occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables begin to brown, about 7 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stack tortillas and wrap in a barely damp, clean kitchen towel (or paper towel). Microwave on High for 30 to 45 seconds.
  3. Divide the chicken-and-vegetable mixture among the tortillas. Top each with 2 Tbsp. guacamole and 2 Tbsp. yogurt. Serve with lime wedges and garnish with cilantro if desired.
  • Tip: Teflon-based nonstick cookware should not be used when cooking over high heat. For best results, make sure your pan is large enough to fit all the chicken and vegetables without crowding (this helps them brown, rather than steam). If needed, you can cook the ingredients in Step 1 in two batches.
