Chicken & Veggie Fajitas


Time to clean out the fridge? These versatile skillet chicken fajitas are designed to work with whatever vegetables you happen to have on hand. The key is to slice all the veggies to approximately the same size so they cook evenly.

4 fajitas


  • 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.)

  • 1 ¼ 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)


  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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
