All of the taste with none of the guilt, these lettuce wraps will bring your guests back for seconds.
Servings: Approximately 8
Total Time: 40 minutes
4 t. chili powder
2 t. cumin
2 t. kosher salt
2 t. paprika
2 t. garlic powder
2 t. onion powder
2-3 chicken breasts, sliced into thin slices
3 peppers (red, green, yellow or orange), cut into strips
1 onion, cut into strips
1 head lettuce (butter, iceberg, romaine, etc.)
pico de Gallo

Combine spices in a bowl.
Heat frying pan over medium to medium high heat with olive oil. Place sliced chicken in hot pan and sprinkle 2-3 T. spice mixture on top. Cook until chicken is no longer pink, about 5-8 minutes, stirrring occasionally.
Remove chicken from pan. Add additional oil to coat bottom of pan. Carefully add peppers and onions. Add 1-2 T. spice mixture on top. Saute, stirring occasionally, until peppers are crisp-tender, about 8-10 minutes.
Serve chicken, peppers, and toppings along with the lettuce and allow guests to build their own fajitas.
